Hayden Panettiere and Jonathan Jackson Get Their Honky Tonk Suds on in Nashville Teaser!



ABC has released a first look at their highly-anticipated country music soap Nashville. The freshman series revolves around Rayna (Connie Britton), a country superstar who starts to lose her luster, while younger singing sensation Juliette (Hayden Panettiere) is on the rise.

General Hospital alum Jonathan Jackson also stars as Avery, an aspiring musician, who is a bit of a bad boy. Check out the preview after the jump!

Nashville will air at 10 pm EST Wednesdays this fall on ABC.

    I’m so excited for this show and can’t believe it.

    Sure I was going to check the show out because of Connie Britton and Jonathan Jackson, but I never thought that this trailer would make me want to wish that September would arrive very, very soon.

    I hope the show becomes a similar success on Wednesday’s night as “Revenge” became this season.

    it’s about time Jonathan Jackson landed on a primetime show!

    he was wasted for years on GH.

    hopefully this show will become a hit and he stays away from GH for good! they don’t deserve him at all!

    He was off GH for a decade, in which time he failed to get a primetime leading role. GH gave him tons of airtime to do what he does best – scream and cry.

    I guess this unwashed vagrant look of his is now going to follow him to Nashville. I hope it works out better than it did on GH.

    Why do people post such negative comments? Who cares if it’s taken Jonathan Jackson a few years to get to this point, he’s finally gotten his well deserved shot in prime timeand I couldn’t be more than happy for him. I can’t wait for this show! Great cast!

    Wasn’t he already on a primetime show? Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles – he played Kyle…..I think he was on for a year or two before it was cancelled…

    The show looks great but I wish JJ had a bigger role. I love Connie and Hayden and you know Eric Close grew up on the soap Santa Barbara as Kim Zimmers son. Both Eric Close and Connie Britton were recently on American Horror Story and did great work on there. I think the show will do well also because country music is pretty popular these days.

    Im happy for Jonathan Jackson, but I still cant help but wonder why he returned to GH and Greg Vaughn was let go. Was Jonathan looking for his old job back, then got too tired to continue working there? I am still mad Greg Vaughn got the boot!! But Good Luck to JJ.

    Britton was so UNimpressive in American Horror Story i doubt i’ll watch this. I didn’t see her shed one damn tear the entire time her family’s being terrorized or killed – WTF!

    It was only a guest spot on a few episodes, he wasn’t the lead.

    TPTB asked Jonathan to come back because they wanted to take a different direction with the character of Lucky. Bob Guza at the time wanted Luke’s cowboy back. That’s why they fired Greg Vaughn and rehired Jackson.
    It’s been out there for years.
    And Jonathan left because he had to play this emotional Lucky for almost two years. In the end it really got to him. If you have to cry every day you come to your breaking point. Jonathan asked TPTB for Lucky to be back burnered, but JFP and GW didn’t go along with it and JJ left instead.

    I was mostly replying to the idea of how great it is that he’s now free of GH and can find this big role. He was free of GH for a long time.
