Calling all COUNTRY STRONG and SMASH fans! NASHVILLE is the perfect amount country, the perfect amount Hollywood backstabbing and pizzazz. Connie Britton stars as Rayna James, a legendary country music superstar, whose star begins fading, and Hayden Panettiere tarts it up as rising teen star Juliette Barnes. Both singers chase the dream of being #1. Juliette feels like Rayna is old hat and that her time to shine is up. Rayna thinks a few hits by sexy new songwriter Scarlett O'Connor are all she needs to reclaim her crown. Rayna's father also plays a role in the soapiness; he is Lamar Hampton, a powerful politician who forced Rayna to marry Teddy Conrad. Teddy lives on Rayna’s money which adds another twisted layer to the power dynamics and struggles.

Highlights: The singing, duh! Also, Connie Britton. Also, the costumes.
