What a wonderful surprise today for fans of The Young and the Restless Steve Burton (Dylan) and Nashville star Jonathan Jackson (Avery).  The two talented men who soap fans first loved for their roles on General Hospital collaborated on a new song that was heard in the ending montage on today’s episode of Y&R!   The song, You Killed Romeo will be available for download tomorrow on iTunes, so you can get your copy for your own private play list!

Burton spoke to Soap Opera Digest about how it all came out,  “I always had this idea for a song called ‘You Killed Romeo.’ Then I started going through this story at work and it inspired me to sit down and write lyrics again. I don’t have any musical background. I can’t put melodies together or compose music, but my family and Jonathan’s family have been hanging out since he lives here, and I asked Jonathan, ‘I have these lyrics. Do you think you can take a look at them and maybe see if you could write some music for them?’ And he said, ‘Yeah. I’ve never done that before. I’ve never taken someone else’s words and composed music and made it a song.’ I emailed him the lyrics and within a week-and-a-half, he’s like, ‘I’ve got something rough. Why don’t you take a listen.’ So, I’m at his house, he played it on the piano and I’m like, ‘Dude, this is unbelievable. You are amazing!”‘

When Steve and Jonathan went into record it, it is the beautiful voice of Jonathan Jackson as the lead vocalist, with background vocals by Burton.  Next, when Burton approached Y&R about using the song, it was a go, because as you will see in the montage from today’s episode, the tune  worked perfectly for the storylines and fallout for Chelsea/Adam/Dylan and Avery and Nick!

Watch the montage and listen to the song after the jump!  Let us know what you thought of it!  Will you be purchasing your copy on iTunes on Tuesday?

Impressive as all hell and I am really particular about music. JJ has a beautiful voice and Burton really wrote a beautiful song. Burton is also pulling in an amazingly compelling performance as the heart broken, world weary vet. It’s clear he did a good thing leaving GH,

The song is nice enough but I really wished I felt something for these characters none of them have any chemistry with each other. I mean wasn’t Nick married last year at this time to Phyllis now he is madly in love with Avery. Huh??? Sharon going around crazy eyed for someone who dropped her after their daughter died. Chelsea the con artist Adam the baby snatcher, baby killer and then their is Dudley Do Right/Dylan. Sad!

That is such a beautiful song. Those words written by Steve Burton are so heartfelt and beautiful. Then you have the wonderful arrangement and signing by Jonathan Jackson to complete the song. I’m so impressed and will definitely buy the gem.

The song is OK but too downbeat to keep, so a good fit with Y&R which is a total downbeat these days YAWNNNNN!

There are dull uneventful common breakups I saw coming a mile away and the other story, Adam, Jack, Victor fighting over NE another on going YAWNNN..
And the Nikki baby story has been dull and a bit stupid,
ohh well what can ya do lol ..
the song will not help Y&R but it was not bad.

This is epic!!! What a painfully emotional, yet lyrical song, and that voice of JJ omg is so beautiful!!! Great lyrics and kudos to Steve Burton, and awesome vocalist(I follow him on Nashville)…. headed for the bigtime….fast!! This left me speechless …….reminded me of my son’s fiancée breaking up with him….words are fitting. Truly gifted people brought us this song!

Love it. Will definitely buy it. Y&R had another song on quite a while back, “When the Wind Blows” (I think that was the name). Would love to purchase that but can’t find it anywhere. Love Dylan and Avery together, as well as Adam and Chelsea.

No amount of self promotion nor JFP over propping could ever make me watch Steve Burton.

Y&R died when JFP threw out superb actors for this one.
Now Y&R is gone and Burton’s self promotion and your promotion of him does not make him interesting

While the song is good, I also can’t get past the fact that Phelps keeps Burton on that pedestal. It’s very unusual.

I wonder what others on the show are thinking of yet another example of what is obvious favoritism to an actor that’s only been on the show for 9 months.

So glaring. So odd.

The other actors except for those who have decided which side their bread is buttered on are holding their nose and grinning and bearing it oh how I wish my beloved Terry Lester/original Jack was still alive to hear what he would say would be music to my ears.

I love the song but cant stand Burton on Y&R. I used to be a big fan of his but this role does absolutely nothing for me needs to go elsewhere. Soap producers need to realize fans feel strongly about long term characters and some changes are for the worst. I used to watch Y&R now just stick to GH things were better with old casting. JJ has a wonderful voice and seems to always land a good role where ever he goes. Burton is a wonderful actor and obviously talented writer but go back to GH or maybe Nashville. Dylan is to boring!

They really should have just done a remix of the Monster Mash, since the performers – and the show –

are a graveyard smash.

Sorry, Steve Burton Phelps and J. Jackson are in the Baby Jane Hudson category of talent.

I absolutely loved this song as soon as I heard it! I searched for it right away and I’ve already downloaded it from iTunes. What makes it even more special is that Steve Burton wrote it and then got to sing backup vocals and that they played it on his show, the Young and the restless. Great job!

The song IS SO BEAUTIFUL. Was watching Y&R only as white noise today; however, that song came on and perked up my musical ears. Want to use that song at our church – Jesus (Romeo) and all the Juliets. This secular song has such a great crossover. Can hardly wait to get their CD when available!

Great music, great singing, great lyrics – all in all GREAT! Keep on doing it!

I liked Steve on GH and I like him on YR. He has done a good job portraying a war vet. Th only complaint I have is Victor. For God sake write him a new line for him saying ” I don’t give a damn” He is a nasty bully and why do they make Nikki keep marrying him. He’s a creep.
Don’t blame the actors for the story lines, blame the writers for some of the stupid stories.

Great song, I purchased it on ITunes today and so did my friends! Jonathan, kudos to you as well, job well done! I see this going far! Thank you!

This song is Amazing. You both are very talented! It was very fitting to the storyline, it couldn’t have been more perfect. Hope it makes it to number 1! I totally love Dylan on Y&R. This song just shows that you are truly the Tender Hearted guy you play on the show. Keep up the Fabulous job!

NASHVILLE Midseason Premiere: You Gotta Have Heart

On Thursday night’s Nashville midseason premiere: heartache, heartbreak, and heart damage were the order of the day.  Through the hour episode, the Nashville men took front and center stage through their emotional songs and their dramatic turns.  

Courtesy/CMT

We pick up right after Will (Chris Carmack) is rushed to the hospital after collapsing during The Chew performance in New York.  Gunnar (Sam Palladio) and Alannah (Rainee Blake) learn from the doctor that their friend and bandmate is suffering from none other than a heart infection. The physician says, “Are any of you aware that he was using needles, injecting steroids?” Avery (Jonathan Jackson), and Alannah are stunned while Gunnar reveals that he knew about Will injecting himself once.  When Avery and Gunnar go visit Will in his hospital room, Gunnar is mad because he thinks it is “stupid” that Will did this to himself.

Will, as usual, sloughs it off and apologizes. But things don’t look good for Will. The doctor tells the country star to take it easy, and that he might need surgery, because there is something going on in his mitral valve in his heart. Will receives bad news; that he can’t play concerts or perform anytime soon.

When the news spreads through Nashville that Will has survived this heart scare, none other than Zach (Cameron Scoggins), Will’s ex, surprises him when Will is at home resting.  Zach gets a clue that Will’s steroid use may have something to do with the good-looking trainer, Mark, who he flaunted in front of his face when the two of them broke up.  As the two of them kind of flirt with each other, Zach mentions that Mark and him broke up, leaving a possible window of hope that Zach and Will might get back together again.  

Scarlett (Clare Bowen), who sees that Will is feeling sorry for himself, gives him a notebook and a pen and tells him to try to write a song about his feelings, even though Will protests that he is a showman, not a songwriter. But of course, in true Nashville fashion, Will comes up with an emotional song by the end of the episode, sung and played to perfection by Carmack.

As for Avery, is there anything cuter than Avery with his young daughter Cadence, while MIA mother Juliette (Hayden Panetierre) has once again put him in a position where he’s raising this child all by himself?  Meanwhile Alannah, who has slept with Gunnar, is very attracted to Avery. 

One night, after it appears that she hit the sack with Gunnar, she goes over to Avery’s to hang out for some drinking … dancing … and talking.  It is apparent that Avery enjoys her company, and she is clearly into him. Nothing happens between them.  They both fall asleep separately in the living room, and the next morning Avery thanks her for her support. 

However, a tabloid photo surfaces on Gunnar’s phone that says there’s a woman sneaking out of Avery’s house. When he sees that it is none other than Alannah, Gunnar is livid! He heads over to a rehearsal begging for a fight. They don’t have a fight, but instead, Gunnar gets hit in the nose by the band member’s guitar. The way it looks to us, maybe, just maybe, Gunnar and Will, who have been good friends, even though Gunnar hasn’t slept with a guy that maybe, just maybe, they could end up together?  After all, Gunnar and Will did kiss that one time.  Is this just wishful thinking, or could Nashville go down this road before its series finale?

As for Deacon Claybourne (Charles Esten), who has been the epicenter of the show, since Connie Britton has departed, he has gotten himself caught in the middle and involved with Jessie (Kaitlin Doubleday) and her ex, Brad (Jeff Nordling). Brad is suing Jessie for full custody of their son. Deacon’s past of alcohol abuse and and fights don’t look good for them, and it’s tearing this possible new love affair apart.  Later, Jessie and Deacon profess they don’t want to lose each other.

Courtesy/CMT

However, the most poignant moment of the show happened when Maddie (Lennon Stella), who knocked back some booze during Jonah’s birthday week, showed up back at Deacon and Rayna’s home.  She’s defiant, and she wants to move out.  Deacon notices that she’s drinking water, looking dehydrated like she’s hungover from alcohol. 

He confronts her and says, “What the heck were you thinking?” She screams that she’s an adult, and she’s 18.  He says, “Not in this house you’re not!” She fires back, “Maybe I should move out!” As they’re both crying, and they begin to calm down. Deacon is fearful that he could pass the addiction gene of alcohol onto his daughter.  He reflects on how he lost so many years with Rayna, and so many years with his daughter, and that he doesn’t want Maddie to make the same mistakes as he did.

At the end of the episode, seeing how her sister, Daphne (Maisy Stella) is broken up over the fact that she doesn’t want Maddie to move out, she ends up in bed hanging out with her dad and her sister, and they hug it out now she’s going to stay, and not leave the nest.

So, what did you think about midseason premiere of Nashville?  Did it have a lot of heart? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

NASHVILLE: What’s Next? The Final 8 Episodes Set To Begin!

After ‘Nashies’ hung on to their favorite primetime soap opera through its cancellation by ABC, its series star departing the series, and the news that CMT has made it official that this sixth and final season would be its last, viewers will learn how it will all end for some of their favorite characters as the final eight episodes begin to air starting tomorrow on Thursday June 7th at 8PMEST.  The series finale airs this summer on Friday, July 26.

Creator Callie Khouri speaks on the latest developments, and what’s next for the characters she created in a new video teaser launched this week from the cable network.

For General Hospital fans, they have watched multi-Daytime Emmy winner Jonathan Jackson (Ex-Lucky) as Avery Barclay.  Avery has been the main love interest for Juliette Barnes, played by Hayden Panettiere.  As the season heads towards its finale, Avery seems to have taken a liking to Alannah, while Juliette is immersed and trying to get the goods on the cult she finds herself in.  Will she make it back to Avery before he falls head over heels for someone else?

Will Lexington (Chris Carmack) suffered a medical disaster after overdoing his steroid use.  What will be the consequences of his actions?  Deacon’s father comes into the equation and old wounds will surface and we will learn more about why Deacon (Charles Esten) is the way he is.

In an interview with TV Insider, Charles Esten side-stepped the question if Rayna James (Britton) would be seen somehow in flashbacks, as a ghost, or something else?  All he would coyly say is: . “Of course, fans want to know.  I wanted to know too before the scripts came out, and now I do, and you soon will. How good was that?”

Watch the latest teaser for the final episodes of Nashville below!  Then let us know: what you think will happen to Deacon, Juliette, and Avery?  And, now that Nashville has concluded, do you hope Jonathan Jackson comes back to GH to reprise his role as Lucky Spencer? Comment below.
