Five-time Daytime Emmy winner Jonathan Jackson (Ex-Lucky, GH, Avery, Nashville) is back in music city as one of the series regulars of Nashville when the primetime series premieres in its new home on cabler CMT this coming January 5th.

The Nashville gang including: Jackson, Sam Palladio (Gunnar), Claire Bowen (Scarlett), Charles Esten (Deacon), Maisy and Lennon Stella (Maddie and Daphne) were included in the first behind-the-scenes promo shared via CMT’s social media.

Nashville is currently in production shooting all new episodes,  and that is happy news for Nashies who can’t wait till the January premiere!  New co-showrunner and EP Marshalll Herskovitz and Nashville creator and EP Callie Khouri also amped up the excitement for the new season, which is being presented as the “best season yet”.

Will it live up to the hype now that the show is more streamlined with less cast members?

Watch the promo here, and then let us know if you think season five will be a good one out of the gate in the comment section below!

If they can remember Character and music.. first..and tell a story. People fall in love with the Characters. Love Country music,it’s Nashville not LA, Miami or Detroit. Not plot driven/message driven. Characters and relationships not plots, It will be a winner.

Oh, Rose, you sound refreshingly like a lone voice in the wilderness. You’re exactly right, of course. Do you remember the live-action Disney movies of yesteryear, like the ones with Hayley Mills? Those movies, too, are classics because they spent the time–and audiences wanted them to — in developing characters we could care about. No CGI effects, no car chases or explosions every five minutes. Just people we can care about and/or identify with. Let’s hope our NASHVILLE remembers it, too.

I’ve posted my feelings about this before but as thrilled that I am that Nashville is returning, I’m less than thrilled with the changes they’ve already made. I really…really…liked Luke and will miss him a lot. Layla was a very well-written character on so many levels; I’ll miss her presence too. Not sure what’s happenibpng with Connie Britton. I guess if they space out her episodes her absence won’t be as glaring but still she’s the heart and center of the show. Finally, not impressed with the new characters they’re adding from the little I know. Still, will definately tune… Read more »

I agree, Rebecca1. I also feel that Layla/Aubrey was one of the best singers, very distinctive. But I have the same issue with GENERAL HOSPITAL. Too many new or unnecessary characters at the expense of others…and us.

Connie Britton should be there–is she still an executive producer?

It’s on The Country Music Channel, CMT. Are you in the U.S.? You should get it…if not it’s also on Hulu ( I think the next day and probably with a subscription).

Whatever happened to the homeless man Scarlett was working with outside her office? I would like to see him brought back. He had an interesting story line.

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?

Courtney Hope Gets Marriage Advice From Her Y&R Co-Stars Ahead of Her Wedding to GH’s Chad Duell

This weekend, The Young and the Restless Courtney Hope (Sally), is set to walk down the aisle and marry the love of her life, General Hospital’s Chad Duell (Michael).  The nuptials are to take place this Saturday, October 23rd according to the wedding planner Zola.

Ahead of the popular soap duo’s vows, Courtney asked some of her Y&R co-stars advice, but as their characters in a very cute Instagram video on The Young and the Restless IG account with the accompanying text: “Marriage advice you don’t normally hear… as told by the #YR stars 😉 A special thank you to our real-life bride-to-be @TheCourtneyHope for asking! 😂”

Participating are: Peter Bergman (Jack), Amelia Heinle (Victoria), Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mishael Morgan (Amanda), Christian LeBlanc (Michael, Eileen Davidson (Ashley), Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe), and Christel Khalil (Lily).

In terms of advice, Amelie Heinle told Hope, “As Victoria Newman, I would say that you need to marry a man that is not going to be around for very long, and especially if he has a lot of money.”

Christel Khalil offered up some Lily marital suggestions: “Don’t let your husband let you think that he’s dead and that you’ve slept with a ghost!”

As for Courtney and Chad, the couple had been dating for five years, and this past Valentine’s Day, they became engaged.

Please share your well-wishes to Courtney and Chad as they embark on their life together via the comment section below, and let us know what you think of the marital advice given to Hope from the citizens of Genoa City.
