I am so thrilled Nashville will be returning! YEAH!!!!! Great show, storyline and actors, glad to know you all are returning.

There’s a reason why Michael Fairman is as respected in the soap industry as an alley cat and it’s because of things like this: his constant ass-kissing of homophobic douche Jonathan Jackson.

As a gay man, he should be ashamed of himself a thousand times over, especially on a weekend like this.

Jonathan Jackson is homoohobic?? Oh wow, I have never heard that!! Details??


Thank you, thank you, thank you CMT! Yes Nashville belongs on CMT!♥️

This is AWSOME news!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am thrilled!! Thank you CMT for being so SMART to pick up this wonderful show with such talented stars.

YAY!!!! Thrilled to know all Nashville fans can continue to watch this great show!! Big thanks to CMT!! Yes, Nashville DOES belong on CMT❤️

Wonderful news …… Love the show

Oh, yay! I’ll definitely be watching.

I love Nashville!! I sure was going to miss it and the characters. So glad CMY picked it up!!

Very, Very Happy! I’ll be sure to watch!

Still say he’s wasting his talent there.

He’s not wasting his talent there. This phenomenal show has over six million viewers. Jonathan lives in Nashvillie, has his own band and acts. He gets to have it all on this show; he’s one of the main characters AND he gets to play music. I’d say he’s living his dream.

Awesome news CMT gain is ABC lost- what dumb butts! Cannot wait to see the show this fall !!!!

Happy for all the fans that their show continues. I does make me wonder whats up with ABC. They give us great shows ( AMC & OLTL) and then cancel them. Nashville is the latest prove of this. I feel so many viewers must watch online or other ways that ABC thinks their show are less popular than they really are. Still dreaming of a proper retunn of OLTL but we all know dreams hardly come true.

There is so many of us dreamers out there but ABC no longer has a connection to their audience. Shame on them.

Jonatham Jackson is an excellent actor and performer. Thrilled to see Nashville lives on.

Breaking News

Ex-Nashville and GL’s Hayden Panettiere’s Boyfriend Arrested After Allegedly Punching Her

More upsetting news involving former ABC and CMT’s Nashville star (Ex-Juliette Barnes), Hayden Panettiere.  According to various reports, the actress was punched by her boyfriend Brian Hickerson with a closed fist in an incident that occurred in Wyoming, over the Valentine’s Day weekend.  He was arrested around 2:30am on February 14th.

According to TMZ: the police report said that Hayden revealed that she and Brian were in their bedroom when he started throwing her around and punched her.  The Teton County Sheriff’s Office was notified of a disturbance at a private residence. That caller said an intoxicated male was locked out of the home because he punched his girlfriend in the face.

Pantierre’s face was red and swollen, and she also had a scrape and swelling on her left hand; which she believed came from Hickerson’s watch during the altercation.  Deputies then decided to book Hickerson for domestic battery. He was also hit with a second charge of interfering with a police officer for allegedly refusing to identify himself.

Things looked like they had taken a turn for the better before the incident, noting that the couple moved past another altercation previously from 2019.  That case was dismissed, although he has left red marks on Pantierre’s body, because they could not find a “material witness”.

Hayden and Brian have been dating since 2018.  Daytime fans remember first seeing Hayden as a young Lizzie Spaulding on Guiding Light.  She played Juliette on Nashville from 2012-2018.

So what do you think about the latest incident involving Hayden? Comment below.
