The money in the music of 'Nashville'

The profit potential of the music from the ABC show Nashville could rival that of Glee, the head of Lionsgate Entertainment's TV division told investors Friday. Kevin Beggs said Lionsgate expects to make $1 million before the end of the year from the sale of songs from the show. There also is a chance we'll see the music from the TV show hit the road at some point.

“If you look at the touring by some of these other shows the money is extremely significant… which is why ABC was so excited when we brought it to them,” he said during a conference call with investors on Friday.
