Wednesday night on the season three finale of Nashville, as the series had done in the past, they have left its viewers with an intense final minutes to leave us wanting more until the show returns for its just announced fourth season this fall!

Let’s break this down:  In the ultimate cliffhanger as Rayna (Connie Britton) and her children wait for news on Deacon’s (Charles Esten) life-saving liver transplant surgery,  Caleb (Nick Jandl)comes into the waiting room at the hospital and asks if he can have a moment with Rayna. Viewers just saw a harrowing few moments when someone flatlined in surgery, but we don’t know if it’s Deacon or his sister Beverly (Dana Wheeler-Nicholson) who is the donor to save his life! As Rayna gets up to listen to what Doc Caleb has to say, in the background on the TV monitor, Rayna’s former husband Teddy (Eric Close) has just been arrested and is being taken into custody via a breaking news report that she nor their daughters notices is happening!   Caleb then lowers the boom and says to Rayna, “I have some bad news”, and we fade to black!   Did Deacon die on the table?  Did Beverly?  Is the surgery a complete bust?

Then, as Juliette (Hayden Panetierre) went ahead and re-launched her recording and concert career, she continues with her postpartum depression disconnected from her husband Avery(Jonathan Jackson) and their newborn child Cadence. She even has a massive temper tantrum and all most hits her hubby and their baby when she grabs something off the bookshelves and aims it squarely at them!  Enough was enough for Avery when he learned she went to the man that Avery despises the most in the world, Jeff Fordham (Oliver Hudson).   The record executive along with Luke Wheeler (Will Chase) agreed to get behind Juliette’s career and resurrect it.   Avery is devastated that she is so out of control and put everything ahead of her new baby and him.  So, Avery decides to leave Juliette and takes their baby with him, but where is he driving to?  Can we just say no one cries and makes us feel his inner pain like Jonathan Jackson!

And there was the heartbreaking story of Will Lexington (Chris Carmack).  After a tabloid report with photos of him and his beau Kevin (Kyle Dean Massey)became public, Will needs this report that he is gay to go away and so he asks his boyfriend Kevin to lie for him in a press conference.  But in doing so, it’s clearly curtains for the duo.  Kevin does what he asks, then leaves.  When it’s his turn to address the press Will begins to confirm what Kevin said was true, and then he has a moment of truth.  He cannot lie anymore, and his father is even in the crowd.  Will admits he is gay.  Later, in one of the most touching scenes of the season finale, Will tells Kevin he loves him.  It was beautifully played by the talented Chris Carmack!

Elsewhere, Gunnar (Sam Palladio) and Scarlett (Claire Bowen) almost kissed after singing their new emotional tune together, and Layla (Aubrey Peeples) found out all about Jeff’s machinations of her and goes to demolish his car! But in the end it looks like these two destructive people just can’t get enough of each other!

Watch the final moments of the season finale below!  Then let us know,  what was your favorite moment in the season finale of Nashville?   Did Beverly or Deacon flatline?  What do you hope happens when the series returns next fall?   What did you think about the performances of Charles Esten, Jonathan Jackson and Chris Carmack, who all had heavy emotional scenes in the finale?  Comment below!

Good show. I enjoyed it. Avery has his baby, deacon can’t die. Beverly needs to go. Taking money for saving her brother ?”Do something with Scarlett’s hair PLEASE. She is a pretty girl but that hair is a disaster. Will should have come out. He looked like he wanted to jump off a bridge. Jeff needs to be shoved off one. Layla needs someone to tell her, wake up Jeff is scum.! Hopefully Juliette’s signing will be null and void because she is mental. Can’t sign anything when you are not sane. Happy it was renewed, I like the show. I can’t say that about any other soap.

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.

NASHVILLE To Become Broadway Musical

Looks like the Music City drama, Nashville, originally on ABC and then on CMT, has more than nine lives! Now the popular soap is headed to the stage and Broadway after six seasons on the small screen.

The show is set to have a musical adaptation with 10-time Tony Award winner Scott Delman (American IdiotRagtimeBook of MormonHello, Dolly!Fun HomeMean Girls) in charge.  In addition, Delman will serve as lead producer of the show and he has acquired the live theatrical rights from Lionsgate and ABC Studios.

Nashville, with its complex, relatable characters and sweeping emotional gestures, has all of the narrative elements that I look for in great theatrical source material,” Delman said in a statement. “From that rich DNA, we will be building an original story with entirely original music, written by major Nashville and Broadway songwriters.  We are particularly excited to deliver Broadway’s first score of true contemporary country music — a genre that has exploded with mainstream audiences in recent years. Lionsgate has a treasure-trove of sterling IP, and I’m honored to be a part of this new phase of their live entertainment division.”

Additional information on the upcoming musical, including production dates and a creative team, is expected to be announced shortly.  Now the question becomes; will some of its beloved series stars be in the Broadway rendition of the series?
