Did The First Half of Nashville’s Season 1 Hit the Right Note?



ABC’s Nashville sang up a lot of drama during its winter finale on Wednesday. Rayna James (Connie Britton) found out about Teddy (Eric Close) being a thief, and then had to defend her scoundrel hubby against allegations he was cheating on her.

Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere) felt the love from Sean's (Tilky Jones) family, until after dinner when his mother made it very clear Juliette wouldn’t be around for long. Being the woman she is, Juliette took it as a challenge. The success of Rayna and Juliette's duet led to the possibility of a co-tour.

Meanwhile, there was a bunch of romantic angst between Nashville’s best two characters, Scarlett (Clare Bowen) and Gunnar (Sam Palladio). At the same time, Avery (Jonathan Jackson) was faced with the decision of choosing his long-time friends and bandmates, or snatching up the music deal he was being offered.

What did you think of Nashville’s first half of the season?

I love Nashville. It's one of the first shows I watch.

The show would be much better if either of the two lead actresses were decent singers. Too bad they didn't have them lip-snyc someone that has a better voice.

I wish that JJ would have had a bigger role and hope to see more of him in the spring season. As someone from the Nashville area, I happen to think Hayden has a pretty good country voice and could do well with a career in country music; she's certainly better than Taylor Swift! Although Connie Britton is only mediocre, at best. JJ's songs have sucked!

@yojoromo They all sing their own songs and it's their own voice. Connie and Hayden both. They're no lip syncing anyone but recordings of themselves.

I believe that I stated that they sang their own songs or tried to, but wished that they were lip syncing someone elses songs. If I didn't make myself clear enough, I don't think they are very good singers

I am really enjoying it.. especially Avery and Scarlett... and Juliet is interesting too... I really wish we would see more of Avery, though!! I love that he has so many colors to him , he is tearing my heart apart. Sad I love a complicated character and Jonathan Jackson is just amazing beyond words. Love him.
