Music legend and entertainment icon Rayna Jaymes has been one of the industry's top female vocalists for two decades. After working tirelessly to elevate her game, Rayna suddenly discovers her passion for the business is not enough to compete with the new generation of talent lighting up the charts. She is reluctant to accept the emerging trend in the business and refuses to be steamrolled by her longtime label, which she helped build. When they give her an offer she can't refuse, Rayna is forced to accept the harsh reality that she'll have to start over and reinvent herself if she plans on being relevant.

Offstage things aren't much easier for Rayna, whose father, Lamar Wyatt, is Nashville's most powerful businessman. Their distant relationship is strained by years of resentment and powerful secrets that begin to boil over when Lamar and her sister, Tandy, encourage Rayna's husband, Teddy, to run for office. For Teddy Conrad, this might be his time to share the spotlight instead of being the man behind the woman. For years he's competed against Rayna's greatest love... her music. He's been haunted by her romantic entanglements, which he thought were buried in the past, but now his choice to align himself with her father could send Rayna running back into the arms of her soul mate.

Juliette Barnes is sexy, sassy, and she's got trouble written all over her. She's the hottest act in the business and she's not about to let anyone stand in the way of her success, much less Rayna Jaymes. On her way to the top, an even bigger set of circumstances will cast a shadow on her girl-next-door image. But Juliette is calculating, has an insatiable appetite for fame, and will do whatever it takes to leave her hard knocks past behind. Everyone in Nashville has a dream: Deacon Claybourne is the band leader whose unrequited love is constantly played out in the lyrics of familiar songs; Scarlett O'Connor is the beautiful undiscovered songwriter; Avery Barkley is a young misguided musician; and Gunnar Scott is an up and comer on a collision course with Scarlett.

"Nashville" stars Connie Britton ("Friday Night Lights," "American Horror Story") as Rayna Jaymes, Hayden Panettiere ("Heroes") as Juliette Barnes, Charles Esten ("Enlightened," "Big Love") as Deacon Claybourne, Eric Close ("Chaos," "Without a Trace") as Teddy Conrad, Clare Bowen as Scarlett O'Connor, Jonathan Jackson ("General Hospital") as Avery Barkley, Sam Palladio as Gunnar Scott, Robert Ray Wisdom ("The Wire," "Rampart") as Coleman Carlisle and Powers Boothe ("MacGruber," "24") as Lamar Wyatt.

Dee Johnson ("Boss," "The Good Wife"), R.J. Cutler ("The September Issue," "The War Room," "A Perfect Candidate"), Callie Khouri ("Thelma & Louise") and Steve Buchanan are executive producers of "Nashville." The pilot was written by Callie Khouri and directed by R.J. Cutler. The series is produced by Lionsgate, ABC Studios and Gaylord Entertainment.

Season Two Spoilers
  • Nashville isn’t something I’d normally watch, but I love me some Connie Britton. I love her so much I’m even willing to overlook Hayden Panettiere. Question: Will Hayden annoy me into regretting my decision? — Lillian
    Is it possible to regret watching anything with Connie? C’mon now, Lil! Meanwhile, while official reviews won’t come out for a bit, I hear Hayden Panettiere’s Juliette Barnes may surprise you. Sure, she’s a devilish nightmare on the outside, but there’s definitely more to her backstory than meets the eye. And it could pack an emotional punch.(Source)
  • Nashville Season 1 Cast – Chris Carmack As Scarlett’s Neighbor - TVLine
  • Deanna: If I don't see some Rayna-Deacon lovin' on Nashville soon, I'm going to lose it! Tell me what you know!
    We know that for every moment that oozes chemistry between Rayna and Deacon, there will be a not-so-hot moment. It's the usual will they-won't they back and forth dance that TV shows love to torture us with. Just prepare to sit tight and wait. Plus, we think Rayna will be too busy with family matters when she has to convince her children not to get into the singing business. Seriously, they even asked to be signed to her new label! Kids today. (Source)
  • Jenna: Are there any more hot Deacon and Rayna kisses coming up on Nashville?
    If we do get any hot makeout sessions between those two, better enjoy it while you can. Because near the end of the season, those two won't exactly be on smooching terms. In fact, when tragedy hits Rayna's personal life, Deacon can only manage an awkward phone call to make sure she's OK. Not exactly the timeline Deacon-Rayna shippers want, eh? Source
  • Do you have any details about Chris Carnack's role on Nashville? Is he really going to come between Scarlett and Gunnar? — Debbie
    ADAM: Let's just say The O.C. veteran, who will play the duo's new neighbor, will give both Scarlett and Gunnar plenty to think about. While he's busy flustering Scarlett with his flirty smile, he'll also share his personal views on dating with Gunnar, in which he recommends always having another girl on standby. Playing both ends against the middle never looked so easy. Source
  • Question: In the last new Nashville, Glenn quit working for Juliette. Does that mean she’s going to have a new (and maybe young and hot) manager sometime soon? –Dana
    Ausiello: Her new manager is certainly young and decidedly hot… and that’s because Juliette’s new manager is herself! Despite the country star’s new sense of direction, “She’s not better off without him, that’s for sure,” says creator Callie Khouri. “She’s certainly not the best person to be managing her own career. So we’re going to watch that for a while.” source
    Will Nashville‘s Deacon find out about his secret child with Rayna this season? –Stephanie
    Series creator Callie Khouri confirms that Deacon thus far “has no idea” about his progeny, and she seems in no rush to drop that paternity bombshell. “That’s a big deal… We’ll hold that,” Khouri says – though, keep in mind, she hasn’t tackled the season finale yet. Source

JULIETTE IS THE REIGNING QUEEN OF COUNTRY, THOUGH HER TITLE IS BEING OVERSHADOWED BY RAYNA’S RETURN TO MUSIC CITY AND A REALITY SHOW STANDOUT NIPPING AT HER HEALS, ON ABC’S “NASHVILLE”

Oliver Hudson and Conan O’Brien Guest Star

“Never No More” – Edgehill has appointed a new chief, Jeff Fordham. He’s powerful, sexy and on a mission to place the label back on top. That means it’s time to reveal his vision for the future. The question is -- who will be part of it? Rayna has returned from her hiatus and the plan includes her own label, with Will and Scarlett attached. Though Jeff seems supportive, he has a different agenda. Juliette meets with the chief to discuss her new mature sound and look. She details her passion to grow and her natural desire to be taken more seriously as an artist. Jeff could care less. In the meantime, a reality show vixen is the talk of the town and posing a new threat to Juliette’s career, on “Nashville,” WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 2 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

Question: I love Chris Carmack on Nashville. What can you tell me about Will’s love life this season? —Andy

Ausiello: You already know that Will is going to spend some time hooking up trying to figure out what his heart really wants, but showrunner Dee Johnson says that despite their awkward encounter on the couch last season, none of Will’s angst will involve Gunnar. “They worked through it, shockingly and admirably,” she tells TVLine. “I don’t think we’re in a situation going forward where he’s going to be pining for Gunnar. They’re friends. Genuine friends.”
