Nashville | Preview

Chart-topping Rayna James (Connie Britton) is a country legend who’s had a career any singer would envy, though lately her popularity is starting to wane. Fans still line up to get her autograph, but she’s not packing the arenas like she used to. Rayna’s record label thinks a concert tour, opening for up-and-comer Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere), the young and sexy future of country music, is just what Rayna needs. But scheming Juliette can’t wait to steal Rayna’s spotlight. Sharing a stage with that disrespectful, untalented, little vixen is the last thing Rayna wants to do, which sets up a power struggle for popularity. Could the undiscovered songwriting talent of Scarlett O’Connor (Clare Bowen) be the key to helping Rayna resurrect her career?

Complicating matters, Rayna’s wealthy but estranged father, Lamar Hampton (Powers Boothe), is a powerful force in business, Tennessee politics, and the lives of his two grown daughters. His drive for power results in a scheme to back Rayna’s handsome husband, Teddy, in a run for Mayor of Nashville, against Rayna’s wishes.

Nashville stars Connie Britton (Friday Night Lights, American Horror Story) as Rayna, Hayden Panettiere (Heroes) as Juliette, Powers Boothe (MacGruber, 24) as Lamar, Charles Esten (Enlightened, Big Love) as Deacon, Eric Close (Chaos, Without a Trace) as Teddy, Clare Bowen as Scarlett, Jonathan Jackson (General Hospital) as Avery, Sam Palladio as Gunnar and Robert Wisdom as Coleman.

Nashville was written by Callie Khouri (Thelma & Louise) who is an executive producer along with R.J. Cutler (The September Issue, The War Room, A Perfect Candidate) and Steve Buchanan. The pilot for Nashville was directed by R.J. Cutler. The series is produced by Lionsgate, ABC Studios and Gaylord Entertainment.

    "Are There Any Disadvantages Owning Electric Care"Wsll yeah, besides the obvious disadvantages already mentioned, there's this from the article: "You hardly notice an electric car engine sound, this is a feature everyone loves about them."Ask pedestrians and cyclists how they like not being able to hear these stealth cars coming. Statistics show that twice as many pedestrians and cyclists are injured by Priuses than by any other single model.

  2. I happen to be lucky enough to have my birthday on November 13th. Which for me means a Friday the 13th birthday next year and being able to go during a slow time at WDW. I was planning on going next year in October but I changed my dates so I could go during my birthday to take advantage of their promotion.I think the promotion is a good one and they made sure that pass holders and multi-day ticket holders get something also, nice.

  3. I am seeing a Northern California production in a couple of weeks, and it was great fun reading your review. Great photos and descriptions of the musical numbers—really whets my appetite for the staging I’ll be attending soon. Looks like this ensemble really knew how to mount “Anything Goes.” Thanks for a great writeup!
