ABC's Nashville is the Real Deal

I have been searching for a new Fall show to love and I think I have finally found it. ABC’s Nashville seems to have it all. Drama, music, and a blink and you miss it cameo ad on Modern Family. I love it, but is it worth your time to watch? If you like catty fun that feels a little like a guilty pleasure then the answer is yes.

Nashville is about two singers, Rayna James (Connie Britton) and Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere), who are in different places in their Nashville careers. Rayna is the former reigning queen of country music who is experiencing a career slump and a lack of cash. Juliette Barnes is an autotuned rising country music star who only seems to have the world by the tail.

The two women clash right away. Rayna is told by her managers that she is going to open for the new kid on the block Juliette. To make matters worse, Juliette rubs Rayna the wrong way by calling her out on her age. Juliette overhears Rayna criticizing her lack of talent.

Things get more complicated from there. Throw in two sets of dysfunctional families, dirty politics, a mysterious unseen child and lots of bed hopping and you have the makings of a great series. I look forward to tuning in next week if only to hear Clare Bowen as Scarlett O’ Connor sing again. She is seriously that good.

Special kudos goes to the show for throwing in a song by one of my country music favorites, John Conlee. His inclusion in the show makes me think the producers of this show are real country music fans and not people just phoning it in.

Nashville airs on Wednesday night 10/9 central on ABC. If you missed the premiere episode, you can catch it on ABC.com.

Did you plan on watching ABC'S Nashville on a regular basis?

      I am going to have to look that up! Taylor Swift probably would do something like that!

      Love this show!!!! Just a funny sidenote - Hayden was on Conan and had borrowed Taylor Swift's guitar. Hayden said she was expected Taylor to write a song called "You Will Never Ever Borrow My Guitar Again, Ever Ever" :).

      Yes, it comes on tonight and you are welcome! John Conlee is such an excellent singer, I think I would like anything he sang. When I saw him in concert a couple of years ago he sounded as good as he did all of those years ago.

      Thank you for your reply HoneyBB! The show has continued to be pretty good. The song I was talking about in the hub was Rose Colored Glasses. Have you heard it?

      Hi Brandy, Thanks for the series preview. My daughter watched it and she called me to tell me I have to watch it. She said she thinks I will love it. I will definitely try to tune in tomorrow night. BTW...what was that favorite song of yours?
