Nashville Will Be Heating Up ABC…Country Music Style!
The ABC Network has ordered a new show, Nashville, that will be steaming up television screens in the Fall! The show is essentially a well produced soap opera (not unlike the currently endangered GCB), but this one has got much more of twang twist to it. The story line centers around a country singer, Rayna (sound like Reba to anyone else?) played by Connie Britton, who is experiencing a decline in the success of her career after decades in the business. In an effort to salvage things, her label tries to force her to work with Juliette Barnes, played by Hayden Panettiere, an up and coming artist with more looks than talent.
Nashville is taking a hard look at country music show business, and putting the spotlight on a lot of aspects that we hear people complaining about fairly often, like the blending of pop into country and the loss of the more traditional sound many fans prefer. The trailer (which you can watch below!) is pretty scintillating, and it is clear that show producer’s are not aiming to skimp on the drama. At a minimum, I think Nashville has the potential to be a show that country music fans will love to hate…if not just outright enjoy it! Watch the trailer, and tell us what you think!
