Though her turn as Faye Resnick on The People vs. O.J. Simpson has sadly come to an end, Connie Britton is still making the rounds promoting Nashville, which is nice and all, but nowhere near as exciting to talk about as Faye.
Only four of the ten episodes of FX’s American Crime Story: The People v. O.J.

Last night, the 47th annual Country Music Association Awards were held in Nashville's Bridgestone arena to honor all the very talented humans in country music.
