NASHVILLE's Jonathan Jackson Brings The Heartbreak In His Rendition Of "The Most Beautiful Girl In The World"!

If you missed last night’s episode of ABC’s Nashville, entitled, “I Can’t Get Over You To Save My Life”, Jonathan Jackson (Avery) showed viewers just why he has those five Daytime Emmys to his name!

In the perfect vehicle to showcase his talents as an actor and singer, Jackson’s Avery who has been heartbroken over finding out that Juliette (Hayden Panetierre) had a fling with Jeff Fordham (Oliver Hudson) has been trying to cope with the betrayal through plenty of booze and sex! Only there is so much one can to do dull the pain until it finally overtakes you! And that is just what happened to Avery at the end of the episode! Finally, he realizes just how much he loves Juliette and how hurt and devastated he is by her actions.

Jackson’s Avery launches into performing the song “The Most Beautiful Girl In The World”.  While Jackson is singing, the show intercuts the drama of Deacon (Charles Esten) who is still pining away for Rayna (Connie Britton) – he hit the sack with someone else too – and then there is Juliette, who caught Avery kissing another woman as she was about to tell him she is pregnant with his child! Avery still does not know! Oh, the drama!

Now watch Jackson’s touching performance in the key scene as he goes into the song after the jump! Then weigh-in! Makes you miss GH’s Lucky Spencer … doesn’t it?

Julie and Doug were Days first SUPERcouple…Julie was the shows leading herione and added a touch of class to the show for many years…now they write her as a somewhat annoying busybuddy, so i do understand how you feel…but Susan Hayes is a daytime legend who deserves much better!!!

It still makes me cry, when Avery, AKA, Johathan sings that song and how he’s so hurt by Juliette.

They finally let him sing!!!! Been waiting for that moment since “Lucky” joined Nashville. Knew he could sing from GH and from his work with his band, Enation!!! And he’s a very good actor!

Jon…Jonathan sang in other episodes. You might have seen the episode with him which featured a duet with Juliette…was a great episode (and song) by the way. You can find it online…the song’s called “Everything I’ll Ever Need.”

JJ is a brilliant, naturally gifted actor. Remember when he comforted young Lizzy after she was raped in the park? And he was emotionally compelling and heart wrenching coming to terms with the sins of his father after learning that Luke raped Laura. I love this young actor. That said, the writing for him has been a little weak. He’s too whiny and weepy. Hell, even his song is whiny and weepy. However, he does have a lot of musical talent. And I cannot stand Rayna. For the life of me, I do not understand why Deacon would want her.… Read more »

Thank you, Harry! I am also not a Rayna/Connie Britton fan….(I rather find her to be another one in our mutually-mocked “Alexis” mode…..a supposedly adult woman behaving like a silly, sex-ruled schoolgirl!) She’s one of the main reasons I cannot even watch this show—though I’m also not crazy about the tunes, either—but having said that, I do consider JJ to be a pure and pleasurable talent to behold. I just wish he could make some occasional visits back to Port Charles….he was and always will be the quintessential Lucky and his absence has been painfully obvious for far too long.… Read more »

Shay, did you hear me exhale with relief when I read your response? Because I thought someone would take umbrage with my picking on the star character of the show. Yes, I think JJ could have been the next Leonardo. He is brilliant. But this show is posed around its weakest link–Rayna. After turning down Deacon yet again, Deacon is forced to tour with the horrible man to whom she is engaged. This man rubs acid in Deacon’s wound as Rayan knew he would. Rayna actually gives her fiancee ammunition in which to hurt Deacon more. But see? THAT IS… Read more »

I’m glad you now like Rayna, Harry. I hope it continues! I really do see her admire her character so much…and to me she just emits warmth even when she’s tough. I also think she’s extremely attractive for an over 30-something…her clothes? LOL…I guess her style doesn’t bother me because I can’t even remember what she usually wears! But then again you said you don’t like the way Sam (GH) dresses…and I do. I like the casual jeans, t-shirt thing. I think there’s something very sexy cool about a male or female that’s naturally attractive with a nice body…That doesn’t… Read more »

Hah! So glad my reply gave you that audible sense of relief, Harry….I’m not sure everybody who receives one of missives in their inbox can state likewise! But yeah, I’m no fan of “Miss Rayna” or her portrayer, who frequently ate her previous show, FNL…(which I also could not regularly view, partly due to her overbearing presence and also because the subject matter was often too “trailer-trash” for my taste. Oh well,,, something for everyone out there, I suppose!) I really cannot call myself a “Team Deacon” player either. I liked Eric Close’s Teddy the ex, even if he was… Read more »

I did see your hilarious comments. Say what you want about Sparkle Pony, she does trigger your brilliance.
I will continue to watch Nashville because I adore JJ and think Payton is pretty terrific too.
I can do without fuzzy naval orange face in pleather pants though.

uh-oh…here we go! I could NOT disagree with either of you more!!! LOL! Let me backup. I agree with you, Harry, regarding Jonathan Jackson. I think he’s an amazing actor…but alas and alak crying is his specialty. I have never seen anybody more able to well up floodgate of tears complete with sniffles as JJ. I think he got that training on GH! And while I jest…I also mean it. They’re using one of his skill sets…crying on command! I personally love Nashville. I think it has everything. Never a country music fan in the past, I’ve come to like… Read more »

Rebecca, you make a compelling argument. I do like Nashville, and yes, JJ is a great at crying. Maybe he’s too good at it because they keep giving him tear inducing storylines. To me, he and Payton are the strongest links on the show. Oh, and the actor who plays Deacon is wonderful too. I can forgive Rayna for choosing Luke over Deacon. However, I did not understand why she had to join Luke on stage to perform a romantic duet after announcing their engagement to the audience while broken hearted Deacon was expected to play back up. Prefacing that… Read more »

You’re not the only one who doesn’t trust Luke. I’ve read so many comments on different sites…he’s just enemy number one to Rayna/Deacon fans. I never disliked him; I just like Deacon more…way more! 🙂 If they weren’t pitted against each other I don’t know if I’d feel such a pull, but Deacon is just this cool, broken yet totally together hot dude. He just is. Luke? I think he plays the sexy cowboy singer just fine…he has the music in him as well…and I think he gives Rayna the stability she needs. I have no doubt though that her… Read more »

Well, Rebecca, you will be happy to know that Rayna did not make me gnash my teeth tonight. In fact, I kind of liked her. However, she is as bad of a dresser as GH’s Sam MCall.
But JJ continues to cry, whine, vent and cry some more.
Just once I’d like to see his lovely face not drenched in tears or his beautiful blue eyes all blood shot.
Come on, Cowboy–as your Daddy Luke used to say, “Get back on the saddle and Giddy up!”

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.”

Finally, Lee Daniels series on Fox, Star, which has been a companion to his hit sudsy Empire, was also canceled after its 3rd season.  Star followed three talented singers – running from their pasts and desperate for a new start – with ambitions of stardom, as they navigate the cutthroat music business.  It has been reported by various outlets that the showrunners will be looking for another home for the series to try to continue it on.

So, happy to learn about HWTGM and ‘Grey’s’ being renewed? What do you think of the cancellations of Life in Pieces and Star? Let us know via the comment section below.
