About “Nashville”

Now in its fifth season, the critically-acclaimed series “Nashville” is set against the backdrop of the city’s music scene and follows the personal and professional challenges as country music royalty including Rayna Jaymes, Juliette Barnes and Deacon Claybourne navigate their paths as artists and individuals. Surrounding them and often complicating their lives are their family, friends and, in some cases, lovers, as well as the up-and-coming performers and songwriters trying to get ahead in the business. Music City can mean so many things to different people. In “Nashville,” musicians and songwriters are at the heart of the storm driven by their own ambitions. Some are fueled by their creativity and passion for fame. Others struggle to cope with the pressures of success and doing everything in their power to stay on top.

 

“Nashville” stars Connie Britton as Rayna Jaymes, Hayden Panettiere as Juliette Barnes, Clare Bowen as Scarlett O’Connor, Chris Carmack as Will Lexington, Charles Esten as Deacon Claybourne, Jonathan Jackson as Avery Barkley, Sam Palladio as Gunnar Scott, Maisy Stella as Daphne Conrad and Lennon Stella as Maddie Conrad. “Nashville” is executive-produced by Marshall Herskovitz, Ed Zwick, Callie Khouri and Steve Buchanan.
