NASHVILLE: Will Decides To Sign Deal With Edgehill Double-Crossing Rayna! Is His Fear Of Being Exposed As Gay The Real Impetus?

On last night’s second episode of the new season of ABC’s Nashville,  it was in the closet county singer Will (Chris Carmack) who provided plenty of drama with whether he would turn his back on Rayna James’ (Connie Britton) offer to sign with her, making him one of her first two new artists on her record label Highway 65, or whether to take the offer from Edgehill records new conniving boss, Jeff (Oliver Hudson)? After Will turns in a kick-ass performance at the The Stage on Broadway, he  finds Jeff in the audience who wants to chat with hm to steal him away from Rayna’s label.

Jeff says,  “Rayna’s label is like the farm team, and I’m inviting you to the majors. Wanna play?”  But Will is in for a shock when he sees Brent, the gay guy who he punched in the face in the laundry room in last week’s episode outside the club!  In the twist, Jeff tells Will that Brent is on his PR team for the label noting, “Y’all are going to make a great team.”  And with that, it clearly throws Will for a loop of what to do next!

The next morning, Will almost opens up to Gunnar Sam Palladio),  but Gunnar is in his own world trying to figure out how to write some lyrics for a song without Scarlett (Claire Bowen).  Later, after Rayna learns of Will being poached to come join Edgehill records and not sign with her, she talks to Will.   And Rayna tells him what she can offer him … the opportunity to grow and become a true artist!   Next, after Will watches Gunnar perform a beautiful new song he wrote on his own, it seems to have tipped the scale for Will and his decision, but how?

At a party thrown by Jeff  to celebrate the new Edgehill,  Rayna learns that Will went with Edgehill when he walks in the door and hugs Jeff!  He did not even tell Rayna beforehand!

So was the fact that Will is afraid of Brent spilling the beans on him, if he did not sign with Edgehill, one of the deciding factors?  Or, do you think he signed with Edgehill to subconsciously  get closer to Brent?  Do you think as Will related that since he is not a songwriter, just a singer, and he does not have the songwriting skill that Gunnar or others have, that he felt in safer place at a big label?  What did you think of the way Will handled the whole situation in the episode? Weigh-in!

I could care less who Will signs on with.

IMO a far bigger drama is yet to come.

Just wait until Maddie decides she wants to “gets even” with Rayna for lying about who her real father is & decides to sign on Edgehill.

Lol .. Rayna’s head will explode.

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?
