Nashville Mega Buzz: Maddie's Getting a New Love Interest

But he may be bad news

Liz Raftery

Two new characters were added to Nashville's ever-expanding Season 5 roster last month, and while we know that one is a potentially dangerous Rayna James (Connie Britton) superfan, the other has his eyes on Rayna's oldest daughter Maddie (Lennon Stella) - who, it seems, won't be any less rebellious when the new season gets underway.

Here's what we know so far: Joseph David-Jones, who's previously appeared on DC's Legends of Tomorrow, is joining the show in a recurring role as Clay, a talented African-American musician in his mid-20s who's charming and outgoing, but also incredibly volatile. Which only serves to make his music that much more compelling.

Catch up on all this week's Mega Buzz!

But here's what else we've heard: Clay's mood swings might be the result of something deeper than just your typical emotional ups-and-downs. Though he and Maddie come from wildly different socioeconomic backgrounds, they find common ground in music. And while the idea of dating a "bad boy" may appeal to Maddie initially... she's going to be in for a lot more than she bargained for.
