Struggling Queen of Country Rayna Jaymes’s (Connie Britton) masterplan to stay on top of the business hits some bumps. She’s doing all she can to keep that little minx Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere) from stealing her songs, as well as her guitarist and old flame Deacon (Charles Esten). She’s also having to contend with her domineering dad – Powers Boothe growling each line through clenched jaws as if he’s literally chewing scenery.
