Wednesday night, March 16th marks the return of ABC’s Nashville after it’s long midseason break. We ledt off with Deacon (Charles Esten) proposing to Rayna (Connie Britton) which she accepted, and the nuptials being set.

But tonight, beginning at 10PMET/9PMCT, it’s the wedding viewers have longed for between the duo.  Deacon and Rayna officially tie the knot, complete with captivating music performances by series regulars: Charles Esten, Clare Bowen, Sam Palladio, Lennon Stella and Maisy Stella as well as cameos by Jay DeMarcus of Rascal Flatts and singer/songwriter Jim Lauderdale portraying themselves.

According to ABC, also look for in the episode entitled: Forever, and for Always: “When the loving couple are ambushed by paparazzi after their intimate rehearsal dinner, Deacon’s hot-headed reaction casts a pall on the plans and forces a change of venue. Meanwhile, wedding guest Avery (Jonathan Jackson) is struggling to keep up with the lies Juliette (Hayden Panettiere) is forcing him to message to press in her absence.”

As to her thoughts on the “I do’s”,  series star and executive producer, Connie Britton told TV Line: “There were definitely moments that we (Charles and Connie) wanted to try to capture. To both of us, I know, it was really important to capture the idea that this was a long time coming and both characters had really worked through a lot to get to this place. There was something very special about that.”

But Britton also felt there should have perhaps been more time, between the proposal and the actual wedding: “I mean, in my opinion, I think we could have actually drawn it out longer and made even more of a build-up to the wedding … but I thought it was great that they finally did it!”

So, will you be watching tonight’s wedding between Deacon and Rayna? Do you think the walk down the aisle is too fast, or was well worth the wait, and now you are glad the star-crossed duo are getting hitched?  Are you concerned that the Music City drama is still sitting on the bubble for being renewed for another season?

Absolutely I will be warching tonight. It feels like forever since its been on. I love that Rayna and Deacon are finally getting married. Is it too soon.? Should there be more time watching them grow and build? Either way we know this marriage is going to rock all marriages but there will be huge fights, breakups, make ups and long stretches of just plain lovin. Cheers to Rayna and Deacon

I love this show but fear, with the corporate changes at ABC, this is the beginning of the end.

Definately watching. Word is since they get revenue from downloaded songs it’s still profitable for the network. Hope so. Great show!

I was excited about Nashville finally coming back after a way too long mid season recess but was incredibly disappointed with this episode. The problem with Nashville is that it seems predicated upon its weakest link–Rayna and her family. Rayna is boring and so is her family. Deacon is at his most interesting when away from Rayna but when he is with her, these two go into repeat cycle. The most interesting characters are the ones who are backburned. The only way Nashville can save itself is to steer away from Rayna and her boring family and focus on the… Read more »

My wife and I love “Nashville”. I wish there were a couple more primetime soaps like it. In fact, I would love to see a half hour soap ABC soap spin off. They could easily spin off the characters that Michael Lowry and Scott Reeves play on the show. These actors have daytime experience and a good fan following. I know- keep dreaming 🙂

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.

Upon learning of the cancellation, King took to her Instagram and shared: “Thank you for bringing me into the Life In Pieces family and for making it such a fun four years. I have so much love and respect for everyone who was involved in this show. 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.”
