So while Nashville went off the airwaves in May with a multi-cliffhanger finale, leaving ardent fans of the show wondering what will happen next, TV Guide some intel from the ABC series showrunner, Dee Johnson!

In addition, TV Line today also revealed that Chris Carmack, who plays gay musician Will,  has been promoted to series regular!

Now to refresh your memory of the Nashville season one finale: A drunken Deacon (Charles Esten) and Rayna (Connie Britton) got in a car accident, Juliette (Hayden) is dealing with the ramifications of her mother’s death, while Scarlett (Claire Bowen) received a proposal from Gunnar (Sam Palladio), just when Avery (Jonathan Jackson) comes back around supportive of her career, and looking for a second chance with her!  Here are a few excerpts from the TVG feature on some teasers for season three in Music City!

On the chances of Deacon and Rayna living happily ever-after:  “As much as we’d love to see the pair come together as part of the James’ larger dysfunctional family, first Deacon must come to terms with his new role as a father before he and Rayna can consider moving forward  … I  think by the end of the season Deacon will come to understand Rayna’s reasoning for keeping the secret. Whether or not he’ll ever forgive her for it is another thing, but I think he’ll come to understand it more.”

On the Scarlett-Gunnar-Avery-Will relationship dynamics:   “Between these four, romance and friendship will only get more complicated. …  And who, if anyone, will Scarlett ultimately choose? ‘Avery is her first love and there’s always a special place for one’s heart for someone like that, but Scarlett is going to be very much on her own journey this season. But that said, she has strong ties to both (Gunnar and Avery) of those guys.”

So Nashville viewers, do you hope Deacon and Rayna can come to terms with the past to move forward to the present with each other?  Do you want Avery to end up with Gunnar or Avery?  And how will Will’s character, being so far the only gay character on the canvas, continue to affect the lives of his friends? Comment below!

I do like Deacon and Rayna together but the past just may be insurmountable. Scarlett has too much trouble right now with Avery and Gunnar. Maybe she should concentrate on launching a career first and in that way, something would be moving forward for her. Will portraying a gay persona is just okay as I feel he doesn’t bring much to the show for personality. I personally enjoy DOOL with Will and Sonny as they have chemistry and a good story line. I would like to see Juliette have a better role to play as she is quite captivating and can really sing.

Love Deacon & Rayna! Love to see their story develop including his role as a father. He was good with the girls. I like Scarlet & Avery together. Juliette needs someone like Gunner but really a knockout, lady’s man that falls for her!!

Scarlett should stay on the fence and drive them both crazy. Then she should meet and date a big star and drive them totally out of their minds. I honestly don’t care about the romance. I REALLY cannot wait to see her become a huge star and give Juliette the flux! I hope Scarlett morphs into a gorgeous DIVA!

Scarlet should try the single route for awhile.. while I think Rayna/Deacon should try to make sense of their new situation as parents along with Teddy of the eldest daughter.

I’m intrigued to see if Rayna’s sister Tandy will have a bigger part next season as well as what Juliette will be up to as well.

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.

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?
