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.

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.… Read more »

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.

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.
