The Best Shows You’re Not Watching: Nashville

The new ABC hit, “Nashville,” is for more than just the country music lover. The network has certainly added to their already wonderful prime time line-up with this star-studded show in which music meets love which meets scandal all with the capitol of country music in the background. This show hooks viewers of all ages and it hooks you fast!

“Nashville,” which premiered in September, is a tale of old and new Nashville. This goes for music as well as society. Rayna James (Connie Britton, “Friday Night Lights”) is the “older” country star that comes from Nashville society. This mother of two is struggling to keep her career alive and in doing so she reluctantly has to pair up with the Taylor Swift of the show. Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere, “Heroes”) is music’s “it” girl. She is young and sexy and her music is more upbeat than Rayna’s classic country. The two start off as enemies but as time goes on they start to despise one another a little less. However, the real cliffhanger from this week’s winter finale is whether or not it’s all for show or are they really becoming friends?

Be it family, career or love, both women come with their own sets of drama, which keeps each episode interesting. While an occasional catfight keeps things interesting, the real drama comes with the star’s personal lives. Rayna’s husband, Teddy (Eric Close), is running for political office. Unbeknownst to Rayna he has perhaps been seeing someone on the side. In the mean time, the hot Juliette has her pick of men and sets her eyes on Rayna’s ex, Deacon (Charles Esten). The tension between both women and Deacon is hot just like female viewers like it!

“Nashville” is a modern day soap opera. There are likable characters as well as a villain or two. All this is topped with the added bonus of great shots of the city of Nashville and the occasional country music performance.

The Verdict: There is a reason “Nashville” was picked up for an entire season. If you have not started watching “Nashville” hurry and catch up before the show returns in January! It’s not only well written, but the scenes are also well acted.

Airs: Wednesdays at 9/10 CT
Network: ABC
Starring: Connie Britton, Eric Close,  Charles Esten, Hayden Panettiere
