NASHVILLE On The Record Special Featuring The Cast Performing Favorite Songs From The Series!



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.

SZima,,, Yes…. I agree !!

I can’t get enough of the stella sisters…Wish they got to sing more. Other than that I’ll go with Charles Esten

I do not like the music, they are not all that good..
I like the story and FF through most the music/songs..
I would be happy if there were one, just one, song per episode (preferably rock) lol

I hope this show gets cancelled, horrible storylines don’t watch anymore.

The only one I liked was Deacon and he’s fading out..

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!!

I like all the performers.I like country music, and JJ and Hayden are terrific. Actually I like all the actors. . I just enjoy the show.

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

How about Connie Britton and the Stella Sisters?

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.

was hoping to find the video..

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.

Enjoyed watching the cast sing on this special..why doesn’t Connie Britton perform on these specials? Also missed the Stella sisters singing.

Why doesn’t Connie Briton not perform in the specials?

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.

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.
