11 New Soaps We Can't Wait to Lather Up With!
No. 2: Nashville, ABC
We’d be ready to boot, scoot and boogie about this country music-set sudser even if it didn’t boast several of our favorite daytime alums among its cast! From Oscar-winning screenwriter Callie Khouri (Thelma & Louise), ABC’s Nashville centers on Rayna James (Friday Night Lights’ Connie Britton), an aging country singer, who must contend with fresh, young thing Juliette Barnes, played by Heroes, One Life to Live and Guiding Light alum Hayden Panettiere.
Santa Barbara grad Eric Close plays Rayna’s husband Teddy—who lives off of her fortune—and General Hospital’s favorite son, Jonathan Jackson, portrays bad ass, songwriter Avery Davis. Yep, this particular tune will definitely be playing on our jukeboxes when Nashville airs this fall at 10 pm EST on Wednesdays.
