S1-E1 Pilot



Rayna Jaymes is the reigning queen of country music, but tour ticket sales are down and a sharply ambitious crossover ingénue, Juliette Barnes, has her eye on the throne. So we enter the cut-throat world of Nashville, Tennessee.

This polished US drama presents it as a world seething with resentment, chicanery and, naturally, heartache. It piles on the melodrama but its Golden Globe-nominated leads (Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere) are both showstoppers. Even if you don’t like country, this Grand Ole Soap Opry will entertain.


Fading country legend Rayna James struggles to maintain her place in the spotlight, and things become more complicated as rising star Juliette Barnes becomes determined to alienate her. American musical drama, starring Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere.
