Rayna James and Deacon Claybourne of “Nashville” Immortalized in Wax at Madame Tussauds

Madame Tussauds could not open a Nashville attraction without including the wax figures of CMT Nashville‘s most dramatic romantic lovebirds, Rayna James and Deacon Claybourne.

The TV couple, played by Connie Britton and Chip Esten, made their way to the attraction as Madame Tussaud’s opened their doors Friday (April 14). The two figures are seated next to each other on a bench outside a replica of the Bluebird Café. The great part about the figures is that fans will be able to sit next to Deacon and Rayna to snap a selfie or two with the famous couple.

“I’ve been to the Madame Tussauds in London and it was a great great memory. The figures just amazed us, each one. You can see why it draws millions of people every single year,” said Charles Esten in a statement. “To think that somebody will have a photograph sitting next to Deacon Claybourne and Rayna Jaymes—it’s surreal.”

Madame Tussauds, the world-renowned wax attraction, located in Opry Mills Mall in Nashville houses figures of Taylor Swift, Little Jimmy Dickens, Blake Shelton, Luke Bryan, Darius Rucker, and Johnny Cash, Carrie Underwood, Stevie Wonder, Beyoncé, Minnie Pearl, Keith Urban and many more.

“The show ‘Nashville’ has made a profound impact on the popularity of Music City and we couldn’t imagine having a Madame Tussauds in Nashville without Rayna Jaymes and Deacon Claybourne,” said JP Dansereau, General Manager, Madame Tussauds Nashville.

Watch as Connie and Chip go through the “sitting” process, that includes over 300 measurements.
