Aubrey Peeples from Nashville

From her singing to her acting, Aubrey Peeples is a double threat. Born in Lake Mary, Florida, the young actress has exhibited her acting chops on both the big and small screen, making appearances in the TV show Grey’s Anatomy and the 2014 movie Rage alongside Nicolas Cage. But Aubrey is perhaps best known as the feisty up-and-comer Layla Grant in ABC’s primetime hit Nashville. Though she had originally auditioned for the first episode of the show, it wasn’t until later in the series when the role of Layla Grant became available that Aubrey found her way onto the Nashville set. Although she may be known primarily as an actress, acting isn’t Aubrey’s only talent.

“Both acting and singing are passions of mine, and make up who I am,” she says. “I definitely wouldn’t ever want to sacrifice one for the other. They are different forms of expression and different mediums through which to translate a message, and that whole process in general is what drew me to both.” Fortunately, her role as Layla Grant allows her to share both skills. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
