Nashville is an ABC\CMT network musical drama series created by Callie Khouri & produced by R.J. Cutler, starring Connie Britton & Hayden Panettiere.

The show aired on ABC from October 10, 2012 to May 25, 2016, in June 2016, it was picked up by the CMT network for a fifth season which premiered on January 5, 2017.

The show ended in 2018, as CMT moved to all unscripted programming, with six season and 124 episodes.


In the first episode, the series focuses on the rivalry of Rayna Jaymes and Juliette Barnes.

Rayna Jaymes is the established "Queen of Country" music, but her latest album doesn't sell well and her tour is playing to half empty venues. Rayna's record label suggests that she open up for Juliette Barnes, the young and sexy best selling singer of bubble gum country pop.

However, Juliette (seeing Rayna as privileged) purposefully alienates her & Rayna (who dislikes Juliette's style of music) rejects a joint tour out of hand. The two of them come into conflict as each tries to get guitarist Deacon Claybourne, Rayna's bandmate and former lover, to sign on to their tour.

Rayna's life is further complicated when her estranged father, millionaire businessman Lamar Wyatt, convinces her husband, Teddy Conrad, to run for Mayor of Nashville.

In later episodes, the series follows the lives of country music musicians, focusing on three female leads: country superstar Rayna Jaymes, rising problematic star Juliette Barnes and newcomer singer-songwriter Scarlett O'Connor.
