This is what we’ve been waiting for! Combine Gwyneth Paltrow’s character in Country Strong with all the soapy goodness of Dallas and the sing-along-ability of Glee and you get our fave new drama of the season, Nashville. Emmy-nominated Connie Britton stars as Rayna James, a country music icon who’s forced to rethink her career when she’s upstaged by saucy young crossover sensation, Juliette Barnes, played by Hayden Panettiere. You can be sure the cowboy boots are coming off and the spurs are coming out as the ladies duke it out for their place in the spotlight. Click through for the five thing you need to know about Nashville—including where to get the great soundtrack!—and tune in tonight for the series premiere at 10/9c on ABC.
