With the Nashville season 2 finale airing tomorrow night, and fans in high spirits after the renewal announcement (with a full 22 episodes!), it’s about time we muse on this rather sweet penultimate episode that aired last week. Rayna begins the episode by having a conference meeting with radio promoters, as her album release is coming up. She’s cut short, however, when Bucky informs her... Continue reading

Episode 20, which returned after nearly a month of the show being off-air, showed most explicitly the aftermath of Scarlett having a breakdown on stage. Rushed off stage by Avery and whisked back home by Juliette (who is terrified about what the press will say, of course), the heavily sedated Scarlett is surrounded by people trying to help her, but who are all deeply affected...

Well, it’s been a few weeks since Nashville last appeared on our screens, so I think it’s high time for a recap, don’t you? The Maddie Claybourne situation has blown up, and it’s hit the tabloids and the daytime talk shows, even though Maddie dutifully took the video down. Things are rocky for Rayna and Luke after the revelation, and he reveals that he’s loved... Continue reading

This episode picked up where last week left off, showing Juliette officially signed to Highway 65. In the first official meeting to discuss strategy, Rayna and Tandy’s intentions to keep her signing under the radar until Rayna’s album release piss off Juliette, who wants to offer digital downloads and shout from the heavens about her return to country music. Grouchy about the fact that her... Continue reading

Following the drama of last week, Nashville was back with a bang in episode 16, as we begin to inch towards the season’s climax. Rayna was on the warpath this week, discovering Liam was sleeping with Scarlett and firing him, after a conversation where Scarlett admitted she was falling for him, and firing Tandy after her poor keeping of the books led to cheques bouncing...

Nashville returned on Wednesday night after a 3 week hiatus, to an episode both exciting and darkly dramatic. Rayna is getting things together with her label and Scarlett’s new music, but Teddy arrives to tell her that Lamar is dead, and slips in a few white lies about how he tried to help but it was too late. They tell the press and begin preparations... Continue reading

The drama builds as we move towards 2/3rds of the way through season 2 of Nashville. Juliette and Avery have slept together, and the former is using his place to hide out and ignore the calls and messages from Emily. She wants to lay low, and to Avery’s dismay decides to change all the furniture to something a lot more feminine, while watching his weird... Continue reading

Rayna and Luke have gone public with their relationship, and Luke is really bonding with Maddie and Daphne, especially Daphne, who is enjoying the father figure with a lack of Teddy in the picture. Luke has casually bought Rayna a freaking NASCAR ad on the actual car and invited her to perform her new single and announce her album drop date at a private sponsor... Continue reading

The drama continues as Juliette tries to overcome the fact that thousands of fans are burning her albums. However, many venues are pulling out of her tour, for threat or for political reasons. Juliette is furious, but becomes increasingly deflated as the episode goes on, and considers that she might lose her entire career. Avery steps in to save the day (after she’s downed a...

Nashville returned with a bang last Wednesday night after a Winter hiatus that saw fans eagerly awaiting the news of whether Peggy and Will would bite the dust. Turns out it was Peggy (cue a huge sigh of a relief from most fans of the show) and Teddy is shown having to deal with this intense tragedy, holding back tears during a press conference to...

It’s been several weeks since Nashville last appeared on our screens, so I’m thinking we need a recap now more than ever, right? As the episode opens Juliette is confronted with the news of hers and Charlie Wentworth’s affair being leaked to the tabloids. This puts a severe downer on her headlining the Music City Festival, and she is ushered in back ways in order... Continue reading

Juliette is annoyed at Charlie Wentworth for saying that he loved her, and she doesn’t believe him, hurt by previous lovers and aware of the Wentworth’s game. He is adamant that he is telling the truth, and to prove it he publicly announces his divorce from Olivia. Charlie convinces Juliette that he is serious and she begins to let him in, but just like Dante... Continue reading

We have a new Hot Country Songs #1 this week in the form of Florida Georgia Line’s ‘Stay’, which is also now at #6 on Country Airplay and #3 on Country Digital Songs. However, they also hold the Country Digital Songs #1 with ‘This Is How We Roll’ featuring Luke Bryan (also #18 on Hot Country Songs), #5 with ‘Cruise’, #12 with ‘Take It Out... Continue reading

This week Keith Urban and Miranda Lambert’s smash hit ‘We Were Us’ has hit #1 on country radio, and retains the top spot on Hot Country Songs for another week. In addition, it holds onto #2 on Country Digital Songs. Florida Georgia Line’s ‘Stay’ beat them out on this chart and took #1 with ‘Stay’, bubbling just under the surface at #2 on Hot Country...

This episode carries on where the last left off, with the aftermath of Olivia kissing Juliette. The latter backs away, angry, discovering that the couple were grooming her for a threesome. She tells Olivia to leave and gets out of the city as fast as possible, returning to Nashville to write with Avery. She tells him what happened, and he convinces her she doesn’t need...

This week Keith Urban and Miranda Lambert’s ‘We Were Us’ stays atop Hot Country Songs, rising to #2 on Country Airplay and on Country Digital Songs. Luke Bryan’s ‘That’s My Kind of Night’ is not far behind, however, at #3 on Country Digital Songs and #2 on Hot Country Songs, while ‘Crash My Party’ sticks at #2 on Top Country Albums. His new single, ‘Drink... Continue reading

Juliette is launching her ‘Inside The Dream’ tour in Houston, TX, but there’s a few things she has to deal with there. For a start, there’s a radio DJ called Delmont who requires all the ladies to get close and intimate with him before they’ll get airplay. He’s been harping on a lot about Layla Grant on his show, and Juliette decides enough is enough,... Continue reading

There’s been quite the shake-up on the Billboard country charts. We’ll start with Keith Urban and Miranda Lambert’s ‘We Were Us’, whose combined star power has shot the song to the top of Hot Country Songs, neatly knocking Luke Bryan’s monster hit ‘That’s My Kind of Night’ down to #3. On Country Airplay Keith and Miranda move up to #4, while on Country Digital Songs... Continue reading

Well this was an interesting episode. There’s a polo match thing going on (does this sound very Gossip Girl to you?) and it seems like everyone’s attending even though they don’t want to. Tandy convinces Rayna that she should go now that Lamar’s assets have been frozen and Rayna wants to buy out her contract, to get some business investment. She hates all these fancy... Continue reading
This HAD to be a dig at One Direction. Either way, she's extremely delusional.

WARNING: Don’t take this week seriously, I’m delirious and think I’m funny. So, you may have noticed I didn’t do a chart roundup last week. No special reason; I was just sleeping instead. I miss sleep. So Luke Bryan’s hogging #1 across Hot Country Songs and Country Digital Songs still with ‘That’s My Kind of Night’, which I think is mighty selfish of him. It’s... Continue reading

I found this episode an odd one. It was hyped as a big, dramatic one, and kind of disappointed on that front, as well as cutting short every good/emotional scene. Anyway. Rayna is still struggling to get her voice back, even through voice coaching sessions. Jeff is spreading rumors about her voice being gone and is demanding the masters of the album, as he owns...

Just like the broken record of Florida Georgia Line that was, Luke Bryan’s ‘That’s My Kind of Night’ is becoming a mainstay of the country charts. At #1 on Hot Country Songs and Country Digital Songs once more, it moves up to #2 on Country Airplay this week, surely set to take the top spot next week. In addition, his album ‘Crash My Party’ has... Continue reading

It’s Rayna’s mom’s birthday (and 30 years since her death), so she and Tandy have taken the girls to visit her grave. Maddie’s still being moody, but she’s been listening to a lot of Deacon’s music, particularly the song ‘A Life That’s Good’. Rayna invites the girls to be her dates to the Symphony Ball, an event her father runs each year, carrying on from... Continue reading

Yet again, Luke Bryan’s ‘That’s My Kind of Night’ dominates both Hot Country Songs and Country Digital Songs. It’s also moved up to #3 on Country Airplay, and I can imagine will top that chart too next week. ‘Crash My Party’ has dropped to #2 on Top Country Albums, knocked from #1 by Cassadee Pope’s country debut ‘Frame By Frame’, which has pushed the lead...
