The Music of Nashville: An Essential Playlist

Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere

The official soundtrack for ABC's Nashville was released this week, and in case you haven't been keeping up with the series, we've put together a playlist to help you catch up before it returns in January.

"The music is as much a part of the narrative as the dialogue," according to creator Callie Khouri, whose husband, renowned producer T-Bone Burnett, is the series' musical director. (Check out ABC's accompanying On the Record web series for additional insights into the music from the actors and producers.)

And not to worry — though Nashville takes place in the titular country music capital of the world, its songs have mass appeal, even for... read more

Nashville: Good Guys vs. Bad Guys

Charles Esten

As two divas from different generations on ABC's Nashville, Connie Britton's Rayna Jaymes and Hayden Panettiere's Juliette Barnes steal the show's spotlight, both onstage and off. But as the series approaches the midseason mark, it's actually the men surrounding the two leading ladies whose story lines are keeping us tuned in every week. Will Rayna's husband win the race for mayor — and if so, at what cost? Will Juliette deflower her football player beau? Here, we break down the men of Nashville — including which ones have won us over, which ones we're keeping a wary eye on, and who we're still on the fence about.

Ask Matt: Two and a Half Men, The Killing, Nashville, Mentalist, Boardwalk, More

Angus T. Jones

Question: I accidentally caught the opening scene of an episode of Two and a Half Men after The Big Bang Theory. There was poor Angus T. Jones telling Jon Cryer that he "had the clap" and was happy about it. I haven't watched the show in many years; I just got tired of it. But in light of the young actor's video declaring the show to be filth, I really had to agree with him. Am I the only one that doesn't want to see a child I've watched grown up in movies and TV talking about VD for a joke? Then I started thinking about the effect nine years of being immersed in nothing but sex jokes might have on your childhood and I started to feel really sad. It's not like I'm a prude, I thoroughly enjoyed an episode of BBT featuring bikini waxing and nude revenge.

Why is ABC's Nashville Out of Tune?

Connie Britton

Will the stars of Nashville be singing the blues by the end of the season? The freshman drama's critical acclaim and decent bump with time-shifted viewing was good enough for ABC to reward it with a full-season pickup, but inside the network, executives are wondering: Why aren't viewers watching? And what can be done to save the show beyond this season? read more

Ask Matt: Last Resort, Revolution, Elementary, Nashville, Vegas, More

Dennis Quaid

Question: I was wondering whether your affection for Last Resort had waned since the pilot. I've seen comments that the show has been uneven, but I've been absolutely hooked. I'm not trying to play the comparison game with some of Shawn Ryan's other excellent series (The Shield, Terriers) because maybe it isn't quite up to that incredible level, but I still think it's the best new show of the season read more

What's Connie Britton's Beef with Mitt Romney?

Connie Britton

Friday Night Lights creator Peter Berg openly criticized Mitt Romney earlier this month for using the show's slogan "Clear Eyes, Full Hearts" on the campaign trail. Now, star Connie Britton and executive producer Sarah Aubrey have followed suit.

Britton and Aubrey together penned a column for USA Today slamming Romney's use of the phrase and saying he represents the opposite of everything the show stood for.

Wednesday TV Review: SVU Turns 300 (and CSI Isn't Far Behind), Plus Nashville

Mariska Hargitay

Hitting the 300-episode benchmark is an impressive achievement for any series, but by the standards of the Law & Order franchise, SVU still has a ways to go before it approaches, let alone overtakes, the longevity of the still-missed mothership, which clocked more than 450 hours before NBC's abrupt pulling of the plug two years ago. read more

Ask Matt: Nashville, Fringe, Castle, Suburgatory and More

John Noble, Anna Torv

Question: How? How? How is Nashville not the No. 1 rated new show? I only watched this because of your recommendation and now I am hooked. A show with multi-layered characters who have to make adult decisions that have consequences. The duet that Rayna and Deacon did at the Bluebird was sexy, sad and uncomfortable. Then the next scenes in the parking lot and when she gets home ... wow. — Gary

Matt Roush: Yes, I love the way both episodes ended that ...
