NASHVILLE: The CMA's Cause Major Conflicts! Britton, Jackson, Carmack & Cast Deliver The Drama!

Last night’s episode of ABC’s Nashville was one of our favorites of the season thus far.  The episode entitled “You’re Lookin’ At Country” was set against the backdrop of  country music’s biggest night of the year, the 48th Annual CMA Awards!

Supercouple Ruke was up for 11 awards between them, but you just knew that Luke (Will Chase) was not going to be a happy camper with Rayna (Connie Britton) getting award after award, especially when they were going head to head!  The night started off poorly and went down the toilet!  First, Rayna stumbles upon the pre-nuptial agreement that Luke wants her sign prior to the ceremony.  Then at the CMA’s, Rayna is winning award after award and thanks her songwriting partner (and former lover, and the man we all know she truly loves) Deacon Claybourne (Charles Esten), which sets Luke off.   He later goes on a drinking binge and bumps into none other than Sadie Stone (Laura Benanti), who is crying over an ex!  You can tell that Luke and Sadie are bound to screw around on Rayna anytime now!  After all, it’s her artist and her fiancée’!  Later, when “Ball and Chain” wins a CMA, and Luke and Rayna take to the podium to accept, Luke doesn’t let Rayna get a word in edgewise! Back at home, after admitting he was a pompous jealous jackass to Rayna, she tells him he is stinking drunk and to go take a shower before coming to bed. Cue the text message! Deacon texts Rayna to congratulate her!  Rayna looks conflicted!  This was one of our favorite performances throughout by series star, Connie Britton.

Avery’s (Jonathan Jackson) parents are in town for the CMA’ s and he brings them to the ceremony, since he is a nominee and he introduces them to preggars Juliette (Hayden Panettiere! Avery’s dad makes the singer/songwriter feel less than about his life, his career, and the gal pregnant with his child.  Meanwhile, Juliette is having flashbacks of her mother’s terrible upbringing of her as a young child.  Avery later holds Juliette’s hand in the most touching moment of the night, when Juliette admits they are having a baby girl.  He then assures Juliette that even though their parents are messed-up, it won’t happen to their child, “We got this,” Avery promises her.  Jonathan Jackson was fantastic in these scenes.   At the end of the episode it almost looks like the two are finally going to kiss, when Juliette needs help unzipping her dress, but alas, Avery leaves.

As for Will (Chris Carmack) and Layla (Aubrey Peeples) – the reality series is destroying Layla bit by bit – as in the closet Will is becoming a bigger sex symbol right in front of a nationwide TV audience!  She even makes a point on the teleprompter of not reading their lines when they are presenting in an award because it makes her look like an idiot, so she instead ad-libs, ‘I deferred Harvard!”  In a tender scene, after the CMA’s are all said and done, Layla asks Will to hold her which he does.  How much longer will it be before Will’s cover is blown? Will Layla finally be the one to let every one know?  Kudos to both Chris Carmack and Aubrey Peeples for these scenes, and we loved their musical performance, too!

Gunnar (Sam Palladio) goes nuts when his newly found son Micah goes missing after Zoe (Chaley Rose) gets a visit while in the auditorium from Jeff Fordham (Oliver Hudson). The record exec says he is interested in hearing her demos and to set up an appointment with him.  Zoe took her eyes off of Micah for a millisecond, and he is gone.  Later, while searching for Micah, Gunnar wins a CMA. Micah is found, and father and son have a big bonding moment that does not go unnoticed by Zoe! Afterwards, Zoe leaves Gunnar to pursue her dreams and shows up on Scarlett’s (Claire Bowen) doorstep!

So, did you enjoy last night’s Nashville? Whose performance knocked you out the most? What do you think will happen next to all our favorite singer and songwriters on the Music City drama? Comment below!

Once again surprised this show doesn’t get any responses…though I think a number of soapers watch it! Sorry, Michael Fairman, LOL, if I’m your only comment here…so sad. 😉 Alak and alas…let’s get to it! Hahahha…I LOVED the episode…but then again I love the show! You covered all the highlights and each one…story and actors was great! I liked seeing a glimpse into Avery’s life. It was a pivotal point when he realized he WAS behaving just like his dad by holdig Juliette at bay. When he realized he too couldn’t get past his anger or his judgement, he/they turned… Read more »

Gunnar’s baby mama is the girl from the Spy Kids movies. In SK she was billed as Alexa VEGA and has now gone back to her actual name of Alexa PENAVEGA. She was in a few episodes and split, conveniently leaving the kid. As for Zoey, she’s gotten too annoyed too quickly IMO. She’s acting like the mom’s habit of dropping the son off early and picking up late has been going on for months or years instead of weeks. I thought Zoey was level headed but in recent weeks she’s been acting like a petulant teenager. which I think… Read more »

I love love love this show, and why would someone that watches FF through the songs?? That give the show life, after all it is about Country Music.

Yes that scene with Juliette and Avery was so sweet, also enjoyed Deacon and Scarlett watching the CMA’s together. Not sure what to think about Luke but year expected him to do something with Sadie, not Teddy and the escort!

Season 4 yes!!

Breaking News

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.”
