On the Set of Nashville: Deacon's upcoming duet with his daughter is a "major step forward"
How will Nashville's Deacon Claybourne bond with the daughter he just found out he had? Through music, naturally.
At the end of the show's first season, Deacon (Charles Esten) learned that Rayna's daughter Maddie (Lennon Stella) was actually his biological child. The information sent Deacon to the bottle and a downward spiral that caused a near-fatal car wreck with Rayna (Connie Britton) and landed him in jail. Since the , Deacon has shied away from getting close to Maddie, but the two will finally get their defining moment during a duet in an upcoming episode.
Connie Britton is on Team Deacon.
As Nashville's fan-favorite couple Rayna (Britton) and Deacon (Charles Esten) was on the brink of rekindling their tumultuous relationship, the revelation of Deacon's paternity, the resurfacing of his drinking problem and a near-fatal car crash dashed all those hopes in one fell swoop. But since Deacon is the father of Rayna's daughter Maddie (Lennon Stella), Britton says she's happy to see that they'll always be in each other's lives.

Just as Nashville fans were happily embracing Rayna and Deacon's romantic reunion, a major paternity bombshell ripped the pair apart. When the show returns, is there any chance for a reconciliation?
"You will see happy times between the two. They might not necessarily be the happy times that we want, but we'll certainly be working towards more happy times," showrunner Dee Johnson tells TVGuide.com. "They have to work through their relationship and what it means to both of them and hopefully they'll come to some understanding that leads them back to each other."
Connie Britton and Charles Esten
Nashville hunk Deacon Claybourne is about to be hit with the biggest bombshell of his life: Maddie is his daughter.
Just as Rayna (Connie Britton) and Deacon (Charles Esten) finally got back together, Rayna's daughter Maddie (Lennon Stella) found documents last week proving that Deacon, not Teddy (Eric Close), is her biological father. On Wednesday's finale (10/9c, ABC), Maddie shows up at Deacon's door with the news. How does Deacon react? As expected, not so well.
