‘Ticket to Nashville’ Introduces Rising Star Kaileigh Bullard at Capitol Theatre
The Capitol Theatre stage will play host to a rising star in Kaileigh Bullard when the original country musical “Ticket to Nashville” premieres at the historic theater later this month.
The show, which features fresh-faced performers and classic ballads from artists such as Carrie Underwood and Dolly Parton, will run Sept. 22-24.
Bullard, who plays Lisa Masters in the show, enjoys hiking and reading in her spare time and is a self-proclaimed bookworm.
Bullard has lived in Nashville for nine years and has made her way to Wheeling to perform this all-new show.
“This is an original story and no one is doing that. My character, Lisa, is sweet, spunky, and very relatable,” Bullard said.
Bullard has also worked on the television show “Nashville” and recently sang the national anthem before a Pittsburgh Pirates game at PNC Park, which Bullard admits was a moment she will remember forever.
“Singing at the game was one of the coolest things I’ve ever experienced,” she said.
Show producer Robin Capehart believes Bullard does an amazing job when performing and that her profile will continue to rise.
“My job is to keep her busy and she will be in Moundsville performing leading up to the show’s premiere,” Capehart said.
Bullard’s big break was being cast as a musician on “Nashville.” She was originally supposed to play the fiddle, but plans changed just before the show began.
“Right before the pilot was shot I was told that the role did not call for the fiddle, but they wanted to know if I could play the acoustic guitar,” Bullard said.
Although she was more comfortable with her original instrument, Bullard agreed to the change and ended up staying on the show for three seasons, which helped lead her career toward “Ticket to Nashville.”
