I see you. I see you.
Connie Britton may have signed on to Season 5 of Nashville, which has left ABC and will premiere on CMT in January, but does she particularly want to be doing this show that she stars in anymore? Doesn’t look like it!
“Everyone here’s a fucking idiot,” says Wheeler Walker, Jr., of the artists and fans flocking to the 2016 CMT Awards. Evidence of this idiocy lies in the fact that his album isn’t selling nearly as well as (for example) Blake Shelton’s, even though Walker—unlike just about everyone else in the building, he explains—is…
On Thursday, Nashville’s resurrection was confirmed with a fifth season to air on CMT, then stream on Hulu. The special deal was the work of long negotiations, passionate fan support, and the city of Nashville itself.
We thought Nashville was finally put to rest after limping along on ABC for four seasons. But its passionate fanbase and Lionsgate Television have refused to accept a terminal diagnosis, and are trying to give it new life on CMT for a fifth season. You think Connie Britton is psyched?!
After four seasons, Nashville, a show that offered few concrete reasons to love it but tricked many of us into loving it anyway, has been cancelled by ABC. Were you still watching? Did you have any good reasons why?
On Wednesday, Rayna and Deacon finally got married—but not before the groom and the rest of the family almost ruined it all, because that’s the way of the heart-wrenching nighttime soap called Nashville. So how many ways was the #Nashvillewedding nearly cancelled? Let’s look back and commiserate, shall we?
Fox Sports’ Erin Andrews won an important victory Monday, when a jury awarded her $55 million in a civil suit, which she filed after her stalker secretly filmed her nude in a Nashville hotel in 2008. But that doesn’t mean Andrews will actually get $55 million, or anything close to it.
Much of television is written by people who grew up, or at least who have lived the majority of their lives, in a big city—often New York or Los Angeles. For that reason, characters who are culturally not from one of those places are at risk of getting written in broad strokes, becoming caricatures of whatever culture…
On Wednesday, Nashville’s crossed a new line by killing one of the show’s longtime villains just as they were getting their life on track. It was like Game of Thrones when Joffrey died (not a spoiler, you’ve had YEARS to watch) except this death wasn’t exactly celebratory, it was bittersweet, like… a country song.
One person has died after several shots were fired at the Carmine Hickory 8 movie theater just outside Nashville, Tennessee Wednesday afternoon, according to reports. Another victim may have sustained hatchet wounds.
In January of this year, Cory Batey and Brandon Vandenburg, both football players at Vanderbilt University, were convicted of raping a fellow student in 2013. Now, as the sentencing phase begins, Vandenburg’s attorney is moving for a mistrial, arguing that the jury foreman failed to disclose that he was a victim of…
“Coming to Nashville was like coming home to a place I’d never been before,” said Charles “Chip” Esten at his set at the Chevrolet Riverfront stage on Friday afternoon at CMA Fest. Or was it Deacon who said that? Esten, one of the stars of ABC’s Nashville, drew a horde of screaming fans to his performance, but who…
Dang, well—Nashville’s third season is over, and everything sucks for everyone! And not even in the good ways that things can suck for TV characters, ways that involve deviance or secrets or schadenfreude; nah, things just suck.
Well, ABC’s Nashville limps on, and though the show’s paternity-obsessed sad-sack plotting leaves quite a bit to be desired, this season has nonetheless had its highlights: namely, Hayden Panettiere having a baby (named Cadence) and panicking at the prospect of maternal identity, Luke from the OC finally getting to…
Sure, you could be cynical about Lennon and Maisy, the twee sibling stars of Nashville who got their start posting precocious Robyn/Erato covers on YouTube, but why put in all that negative effort when both girls are so damn talented and charming?
The email was a lark—hardly even a serious offer. My friend and former professor Lorrie Moore was moving to Nashville to teach at Vanderbilt, and she wrote me to say that they needed someone to fill in for a semester, to teach a single undergraduate creative writing workshop. I was six months pregnant, with no idea of…
Nashville can be kind of a soapy disaster, what with all those hazy flashback shots of Rayna and Deacon (and now Luke with a terrible mullet!) and people inexplicably dying left and right, but sometimes, that soap gets sudsy enough to result in plain hilarious fun.
