Sunday night on the televised 21st Annual Critics’ Choice Awards honoring the best in television and film in 2015,  two presenters who fans of ABC’s Nashville have missed seeing together on-screen for several months, got their long-awaited moment.

Star crossed lovers, Nashville’s Avery and Juliette, played by Critics’ Choice Award nominees, Jonathan Jackson (Ex- Lucky, GH) and Hayden Panettiere (Ex-GL and OLTL), took to the stage at the Barkar Hangar in Santa Monica, California to present an award. Meanwhile, Jackson tweeted out this image with him and his co-star.  This was Panettiere’s her first U.S. red carpet and public appearance since entering into a rehab facility back in October of last year during her battle with postpartum depression.  Jonathan attended the ceremony with his wife Elisa Vultaggio (Ex-Hannah, GH).

On the red carpet before the ceremonies, Hayden spoke to several reporters including Page Six about her personal struggles where she explained:  “When (you’re told) about postpartum depression, you think it’s ‘I feel negative feelings towards my child, I want to injure or hurt my child’ — I’ve never, ever had those feelings. Some women do. But you don’t realize how broad of a spectrum you can really experience that on.  It’s something that needs to be talked about. Women need to know that they’re not alone, and that it does heal.”

Panettiere told PEOPLE:  “I’ve been hiding myself.  Just putting out the smiling face, showing people this, and allowing that veil to come down — it’s like a weight off my shoulders.”  Being that this was Hayden’s first appearance in front of the press in U.S since fall of last year,  he added she can now enjoy red carpet events: “… so much more because I don’t feel like I have to hide anymore.”

So, where you glad to see Jonathan and Hayden on stage at the awards ceremonies?  Happy to know Hayden is doing much better and that she will soon be seen in all-new episodes of Nashville when the series returns for the second half of its fourth season this spring?

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.
