Don’t miss tomorrow night’s (4/23) special ABC Nashville event!

That’s when series stars Charles Esten, Hayden Panettiere, Claire Bowen, Jonathan Jackson, Chris Carmack, Will Chase and Sam Palladio take to the state in a very special concert performing the hits songs from the television show taped at Nashville’s world famous Ryman Auditorum!

During the episode, the stars will take the stage to perform show favorites then sit down in the Bluebird Café for acoustic performances.

The special takes an inside look at the songwriting process with the songwriters themselves, talking candidly about how this music found its way to the show and what it means to the actors and songwriters.  The episode begins at 10PMET in Nashville’s normal time slot.

Among the songwriters appearing on the special are Trent Dabbs and Caitlyn Smith, who co-wrote the anthem, “Don’t Put Dirt on My Grave Just Yet,” which Hayden Panettiere and Jonathan Jackson’s characters have performed, as well as Striking Matches (duo Sarah Zimmerman and Justin Davis) who’ve co-written “I Ain’t Leaving Without Your Love” with Cary Barlowe, performed by Jonathan Jackson, Sam Palladio and Chaley Rose on the TV show. Also appearing is notable songwriter Ashley Monroe, solo artist and member of the Pistol Annies, who co-wrote “A Life that’s Good” with Sarah Siskind, which has been performed by Lennon and Maisy Stella and Charles Esten on the series.

Who is your favorite performer from Nashville? Will you be checking out the special tomorrow night?  And, do you think Nashville will get a series renewal for another season?  Let us know!

My favorite part of each episode are the performances! Everyone is very talented! Hard to choose my favorite because each performer is uniquely talented. My DVR is set to record this episode!

I realize that I may be in the minority here, but this episode doesn’t interest me at all. I usually listen to a few seconds of a song then FF the rest. I prefer more dialog and less singing. If there is no storyline involved, I’ll just delete from my DVR.

I love this show!! The music and the storyline is excellent. You always want more…but the studio or whoever puts it on like every 2 weeks leaving us hanging. I love this show and hope and pray it gets renewed. They soooo deserved it!!

No Stella sisters? They are the musical highlight of the show and what it will be remembered for years from now.

Love the show & Really Hope they bring it back. Would be Awesome if it ran for 6-10 season’s as the Storyline Continues & we get to see Maddy & her sister grow up & one or both become Famous like their mama. See Scarlet Finally find Love & Marriage, the Truth about Will comes out to his New Bride, there are so Many ways the storyline can go.

Why was Rayna and her girls not part of it?

LOVE this show! Hope it gets renewed for many seasons to come!

I also like Luke…though many are suspicious of his motives toward Rayna I think he genuinely loves her…but probaby a filler until they reunite Rayna and Deacon (who of course I’m crushin’ on like most everyone else!)

Didn’t think I’d like the Nashville Special even though I love the music and the talent…only because I so miss the show and am impatient for the next episode. I did however, watch, and it was fun. The cast (though not complete) who performed were great…fun to see them as themselves doing in reality what they do as their characters on the show. They’re all so muti-talented. What I didn’t want to see was non cast members singing…other than in the band. Just wanted to stick with my Nashville peeps. LOL.

Don’t know why Rayna and daughters weren’t there. Noticeably missed…

One of my favorite all time shows, which probably means that it’s on the chopping block, as that is what usually happens to most shows that I really enjoy. I’m from Canada and a huge Country Music lover. We attended Nashville for the first time over Christmas in 2012 and hope to get back soon. Highlites were attending The Ryman on December 29th. (John Conlee) and The Bluebird Cafe on New Year’s Eve (Roundtable with songwriters, Thom Schuyler; Fred Knobloch; Tony Arata and Jelly Roll Johnson). I think the singing is absolutely terrific on Nashville, and loved the most recent episode where Rayna; Deacon and the two girls sang to The Troops. I wish there was more songs on the show, especially some more with Maddie and Daphne.

I am so disappointed I missed the 2015 on the record. I LOVE the show and ALL of the actors. I have been waiting for the perfect time to come to Nashville to see all of them perform. Please let me know when that will happen again. This is definitely on my Bucket list. We can come pretty much any time but it won’t be complete without seeing the Nashville Gang!
Also would like to see Rascel Flats. My brother Tony A. has met them and says they are wonderful people, very down to earth. He is going to see them in August I believe in Columbus Ohio. I am hoping to meet them with maybe my brothers help. What a thrill that will be. Please get a day if possible for the next OTR!
Thank you all so much.

NASHVILLE Midseason Premiere: You Gotta Have Heart

On Thursday night’s Nashville midseason premiere: heartache, heartbreak, and heart damage were the order of the day.  Through the hour episode, the Nashville men took front and center stage through their emotional songs and their dramatic turns.  

Courtesy/CMT

We pick up right after Will (Chris Carmack) is rushed to the hospital after collapsing during The Chew performance in New York.  Gunnar (Sam Palladio) and Alannah (Rainee Blake) learn from the doctor that their friend and bandmate is suffering from none other than a heart infection. The physician says, “Are any of you aware that he was using needles, injecting steroids?” Avery (Jonathan Jackson), and Alannah are stunned while Gunnar reveals that he knew about Will injecting himself once.  When Avery and Gunnar go visit Will in his hospital room, Gunnar is mad because he thinks it is “stupid” that Will did this to himself.

Will, as usual, sloughs it off and apologizes. But things don’t look good for Will. The doctor tells the country star to take it easy, and that he might need surgery, because there is something going on in his mitral valve in his heart. Will receives bad news; that he can’t play concerts or perform anytime soon.

When the news spreads through Nashville that Will has survived this heart scare, none other than Zach (Cameron Scoggins), Will’s ex, surprises him when Will is at home resting.  Zach gets a clue that Will’s steroid use may have something to do with the good-looking trainer, Mark, who he flaunted in front of his face when the two of them broke up.  As the two of them kind of flirt with each other, Zach mentions that Mark and him broke up, leaving a possible window of hope that Zach and Will might get back together again.  

Scarlett (Clare Bowen), who sees that Will is feeling sorry for himself, gives him a notebook and a pen and tells him to try to write a song about his feelings, even though Will protests that he is a showman, not a songwriter. But of course, in true Nashville fashion, Will comes up with an emotional song by the end of the episode, sung and played to perfection by Carmack.

As for Avery, is there anything cuter than Avery with his young daughter Cadence, while MIA mother Juliette (Hayden Panetierre) has once again put him in a position where he’s raising this child all by himself?  Meanwhile Alannah, who has slept with Gunnar, is very attracted to Avery. 

One night, after it appears that she hit the sack with Gunnar, she goes over to Avery’s to hang out for some drinking … dancing … and talking.  It is apparent that Avery enjoys her company, and she is clearly into him. Nothing happens between them.  They both fall asleep separately in the living room, and the next morning Avery thanks her for her support. 

However, a tabloid photo surfaces on Gunnar’s phone that says there’s a woman sneaking out of Avery’s house. When he sees that it is none other than Alannah, Gunnar is livid! He heads over to a rehearsal begging for a fight. They don’t have a fight, but instead, Gunnar gets hit in the nose by the band member’s guitar. The way it looks to us, maybe, just maybe, Gunnar and Will, who have been good friends, even though Gunnar hasn’t slept with a guy that maybe, just maybe, they could end up together?  After all, Gunnar and Will did kiss that one time.  Is this just wishful thinking, or could Nashville go down this road before its series finale?

As for Deacon Claybourne (Charles Esten), who has been the epicenter of the show, since Connie Britton has departed, he has gotten himself caught in the middle and involved with Jessie (Kaitlin Doubleday) and her ex, Brad (Jeff Nordling). Brad is suing Jessie for full custody of their son. Deacon’s past of alcohol abuse and and fights don’t look good for them, and it’s tearing this possible new love affair apart.  Later, Jessie and Deacon profess they don’t want to lose each other.

However, the most poignant moment of the show happened when Maddie (Lennon Stella), who knocked back some booze during Jonah’s birthday week, showed up back at Deacon and Rayna’s home.  She’s defiant, and she wants to move out.  Deacon notices that she’s drinking water, looking dehydrated like she’s hungover from alcohol. 

He confronts her and says, “What the heck were you thinking?” She screams that she’s an adult, and she’s 18.  He says, “Not in this house you’re not!” She fires back, “Maybe I should move out!” As they’re both crying, and they begin to calm down. Deacon is fearful that he could pass the addiction gene of alcohol onto his daughter.  He reflects on how he lost so many years with Rayna, and so many years with his daughter, and that he doesn’t want Maddie to make the same mistakes as he did.

At the end of the episode, seeing how her sister, Daphne (Maisy Stella) is broken up over the fact that she doesn’t want Maddie to move out, she ends up in bed hanging out with her dad and her sister, and they hug it out now she’s going to stay, and not leave the nest.

So, what did you think about midseason premiere of Nashville?  Did it have a lot of heart? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

NASHVILLE: What’s Next? The Final 8 Episodes Set To Begin!

After ‘Nashies’ hung on to their favorite primetime soap opera through its cancellation by ABC, its series star departing the series, and the news that CMT has made it official that this sixth and final season would be its last, viewers will learn how it will all end for some of their favorite characters as the final eight episodes begin to air starting tomorrow on Thursday June 7th at 8PMEST.  The series finale airs this summer on Friday, July 26.

Creator Callie Khouri speaks on the latest developments, and what’s next for the characters she created in a new video teaser launched this week from the cable network.

For General Hospital fans, they have watched multi-Daytime Emmy winner Jonathan Jackson (Ex-Lucky) as Avery Barclay.  Avery has been the main love interest for Juliette Barnes, played by Hayden Panettiere.  As the season heads towards its finale, Avery seems to have taken a liking to Alannah, while Juliette is immersed and trying to get the goods on the cult she finds herself in.  Will she make it back to Avery before he falls head over heels for someone else?

Will Lexington (Chris Carmack) suffered a medical disaster after overdoing his steroid use.  What will be the consequences of his actions?  Deacon’s father comes into the equation and old wounds will surface and we will learn more about why Deacon (Charles Esten) is the way he is.

In an interview with TV Insider, Charles Esten side-stepped the question if Rayna James (Britton) would be seen somehow in flashbacks, as a ghost, or something else?  All he would coyly say is: . “Of course, fans want to know.  I wanted to know too before the scripts came out, and now I do, and you soon will. How good was that?”

Watch the latest teaser for the final episodes of Nashville below!  Then let us know: what you think will happen to Deacon, Juliette, and Avery?  And, now that Nashville has concluded, do you hope Jonathan Jackson comes back to GH to reprise his role as Lucky Spencer? Comment below.
