Nashville was one of the 'hot' shows to watch this fall and it is currently on hiatus for the winter break after it's fall finale. Set in Nashville, the musical show talks of two competing female singers, Raina Jaymes, whose star is about to fade and Juliette Barnes, who burst into the country music scene.
Edgehill, the record company both Jaymes and Barnes shares, keeps trying to get the two to perform together, despite refute from both sides. But when Jaymes' sales start to drop and Barnes' reputation on the decrease after an incident, the two must reconsider to protect their individual careers.
The focus of the show is on the two leads, but is not a shallow as that. Rayna's family life, love life and pressures are also shown- a dynamic and engaging web of relationships, affair and betrayal. Juliette on the other hand is not as simple as she seems and also has a past in the form of a drug addict mother.
Contrasting these complicated relationships with the simple dynamic duo Scarlett and Gunnar, who work together at a bar, only to discover each other's musical talents after performing spontaneously one night, decide to write together.
These two steal the show, with every song they perform simply breathtaking and for me, the reason why I really watch this show.
Musically, there is a lot to like, with both covers and original songs, all of which reflect very well on the show, from rock to pop and of course country music. I have personally had to download quite a few tracks because they were just so good!
As the show reached it's halfway point and relationships get very complicated, we can only hope that the rest of this season will fare well for the characters!
Raina Jaymes- Connie Britton
Juliette Barnes- Hayden Panettiere
Scarlett O'Connor- Clare Bowen
Gunnar Scott -Sam Palladdio
Also stars Eric Close, Charles Esten and Jonathan Jackson.
With its dynamic set of relationships, I can honestly say this reminds me greatly of 'The OC', but set in Nashville and full of music. I found the show surprisingly enjoyable and it is really quite addictive after just a few episodes. Bored of Glee? Jump onboard the train to Nashville.
