1 of 13"If I Didn't Know Better"
Performers: Gunnar (Sam Palladio) and Scarlett (Clare Bowen)
Rayna and Juliette may have been the established country stars when Nashville launched, but by far the most memorable performance of the pilot was delivered by these two struggling singer-songwriters. Scarlett's deep, haunting voice particularly seems like it should be coming from the mouth of a woman much older and with much more life experience — which probably explains why the "Pope of Nashville," Watty White, called Rayna from the Bluebird and held the phone up for her to hear the future of country music for herself.
