Could Will Lexington (Chris Carmack) take a page from the debut of the newest character on the Nashville canvas?  According to Deadline , Broadway and TV star, Kyle Dean Massey will play the role of Kevin Bicks, who happens to be one of country music’s biggest singer/songwriters …  and … he is openly gay!

As viewers know from the beginning, Will Lexington has tried to keep in the closet about his sexuality, even marrying Layla (Aubrey Peeples), who when we last saw her looked like she was floating dead in a pool!

An all-new Nashville returns with the second half of its season on Wednesday, February 4th!  About the character of Mr. Bicks though! He is described as a successful country artist who happens to like guys, and his very existence deflates Will’s theory that the genre will never accept a gay superstar.

As for Kyle Dean Massey, he has been starring on the revival of Pippin on Broadway and is known for his TV roles in The Good Wife and Hart of Dixie!

So, what do you think about Kyle being cast as out country artist Kevin Bicks? Is it time for Will to have a viable love interest? Could this be it … or just a lesson learned?  Comment below!

I like Nashville, to a point.. there really are no great stories; weak on a good gripping story.. and- there is way too much music and it’s its country.. If one is not a country music fan the show could be irritating to them lol .. Less music and more story, I would be happier with Nashville.. ((wish they play some Led Zeppelin and Clapton.. and some AC/DC and KISS to pick it up .. and bring it home with the greatest performer of all time Freddie Mercury and Queen.. and bring it home , for Harry, with Etta James… Read more »

…so your complaint about a soap about the country music industry is that it features too much country music?

Freddie Mercury and Macdonald Carey had something in common. They both famously uttered these words: These are the days of our lives.

Some of the dumbest remarks! This is a country themed show and should have country music. It is as it should be. If it not enjoyed the viewer has the wrong program on! Nashville is a great show complete with country music just as it would expected to have.

As always, love the show….everything from the fantastic music…I think like a lot of us who grew up hating country music the “new” country is so fused with rock, blues, etc that it’s crossed genres…to the soap operaesque relationships and stories. Just love this little microcosm. I’m not familiar with Kyle Dean Massey. He’s gorgeous! Should be a great addition to the show and Will’s story… Looking forward to it!

I’m not a big fan of country music, but this is called Nashville for a reason. I enjoy the storylines and the music anyway.

Hopefully this gets Will’s story out of stall mode, though I am still bummed the show did away with Brent.

I love Kevin! And I was thrilled when Will finally admitted his true orientation. I know that by addressing these social issues in a very popular TV show it helps us to move forward in our society. Love Love Love it!

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.

WATCH: Jonathan Jackson + Enation’s New Music Video “The Days Are Evil”

Five-time Daytime Emmy winner from General Hospital, and former Nashville star, Jonathan Jackson (Ex-Lucky, Ex-Avery) has released a new music video for the new single “The Days Are Evil” along with his band Enation.

The music video features shots of Jackson in a very dark incarnation, and the track will also appear on Jackson + Enation’s upcoming album due out later this fall, Ultraviolet Empire.

Jonathan says of the new album: “Our new album, Ultraviolet Empire, is a throwback record. It’s a record we played together live in the studio. Most of the songs are one take -just letting the band play.  It was amazing playing with our co-producer Colin Linden and capturing something so raw and visceral.”

This will be the band’s follow-up to their 2017 album  Anthems for the Apocalypse and their successful 2018 tour in Europe opening for Echo & The Bunnymen,

Check out the music video featuring Jonathan released this week below.

Then, let us know, should Lucky return to Port Charles for the Nurses’ Ball with his band and play a tune off the new album next spring? Will Jonathan come home to GH for a guest appearance? Will you be checking out the new music from him in the coming months? Comment below.

Thank you to the amazing cast and crew, and thank you to our amazing leaders Justin Adler, @kaplanaaron , and Jeff Morton . I am forever grateful.”
