PenaVega, 25, will appear in three episodes as Kiley, the high school sweetheart of Gunnar (Sam Palladio) who is now a single mother who recently moved to Nashville with her 10-year-old son. Will she and Gunnar rekindle their flame? A recent tweet from Palladio indicates that may be the case.
".@alexavega well Gunnar's sure to be singing some songs about you this year! Welcome to the team Alexa! @Nashville_ABC S x," he posted earlier this week.
It also looks like Luke (Will Chase) and Deacon (Charles Esten) may again find themselves vying for the attention of the same woman — and this time, it's not Rayna (Connie Britton). Taylor has joined the cast as Pam, a new backup singer for Luke who ends up becoming Deacon's muse when he learns about her "complicated and dark past."
Nashville kicks off Season 3 Wednesday, Sept. 24 at 10/9c.
