Wednesday, October 17
- The new drama, Nashville, where all of the actors do their own singing, premiered last Wednesday (Oct. 10). The series airs again on tonight at 10pm ET/9pm CT on ABC. In the pilot show, chart-topping Rayna James, played by Connie Britton, is a country superstar who’s popularity is starting to decline. Her record label thinks a concert tour opening up for Juliette Barnes, played by Hayden Panetierre, is exactly the boost her career needs. Sharing the stage with the sexy, up-and-coming pop vixen, however, is the last thing Rayna wants to do. Catch up on last weeks full episode here.
