Did ABC’s Nashville Sing The Right Tune?

After months of built up anticipation and fantastic trailers promoting Rayna Jaymes (Connie Britton) vs. Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere), Nashville premiered Wednesday night on ABC. You might not have to be a country music fan to enjoy Nashville, but the ABC drama was packed with boot scootin' charm and at least one or two “bless his/her hearts” (which my Daytime Confidential co-hosts have led me to believe is a polite Southern put down).

My favorite part came when Rayna’s two daughters were singing along to Juliette’s song in the car until she shut it off. When they protested, she replied, “Mama’s got a headache.” One character I hope to see more of is Avery Barkley (General Hospital's Jonathan Jackson). 

What grade do you give the Nashville pilot?

Said Panettiere:

"You have to respect her to a certain degree," Panettiere says, "even though she is a little b*** at some times. She is running from a very dark past."
