Will Lexington (Chris Carmack) coming out may have far-reaching repercussions on the upcoming season of Nashville.

With Will declaring publicly that he's gay on the Season 3 finale, it remains to be seen what impact the announcement will have on his career. And label head Luke Wheeler (Will Chase) is already in damage-control mode as he prepares for backlash against his brand - so he does the sensible thing and hires an image consultant to suss out how country fans will react to an openly gay superstar.

But he may get more than he bargained for. Any Nashville fan knows that Luke is more likely to go with his own instincts rather than listen to advice, which puts him at odds with the consultant almost immediately when the data that she collects seem less than promising. In the midst of her and Luke butting heads, though, it seems like sparks may start to fly between them as well.
