Nashville Blog: Will Chase on Playing Rayna's Other Man

Originally posted 10/23/2014 03:55PM

Every week, a member of the Nashville cast will blog about the latest episode of the ABC hit. This week, Will Chase – who plays Luke Wheeler – writes about being the other man in the complicated life of Rayna Jaymes.

It's funny. Even with Deacon (Charles Esten) and all of his demons, fans demonize Luke, who has done absolutely nothing wrong. Like, I'm not a freakin' mess! I'm not a bad guy!

Deacon keeps coming and will keep coming. I think Rayna (Connie Britton) might feel a little bit like she's selling out. I like that it's messy rather than it being a maniacal mustache-twirling thing. Even with Deacon's faults, it doesn't mean he can't be good for Rayna. Fans are pretty outspoken with their love for that relationship.

It's a sub-freezing February afternoon in Nashville and Miranda Lambert has just slipped into a $9,000 strapless silk chiffon gown. In a minute, she'll brave the cold to step outside in front of a waiting camera, but at the moment, she's poking fun at the decadence of couture: "This is what famous people do – lounge around in gowns all day!" she jokes.

Go Big or Go Home ... or Go to Waffle House? How Country Stars Partied after the CMAs

Originally posted 11/07/2013 03:00PM

Everything in country is big, from the hair to the trucks to the personalities. It's no surprise, then, that on country's biggest night, the good times kept rolling even after hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley delivered their final punch lines at Wednesday's CMA Awards.

So how did Nashville's finest celebrate when they filed out of Bridgestone Arena?

Country heavyweights like Pinnacle Award winner Taylor Swift and Tim McGraw (who both earned accolades for their hit "Highway Don't Care") partied with their industry peers – including James Young, Mike Eli, Jon Jones, Brantley Gilbert, Chris Thompson, Jay DeMarcus, Reid Perry, Neil Perry, Kimberly Perry, Scott Borchetta, Danielle Bradbery, Cassadee Pope, RaeLynn and Laura Bell Bundy – at Big Machine Label Group's CMAs afterparty (pictured above).

Blake Shelton & Miranda Lambert Win Male & Female Vocalist of the Year at CMAs

Originally posted 11/06/2013 11:20PM

The CMAs in Nashville had viewers seeing stars, but unlike in years past, there wasn't one specific standout.

All the regulars – Taylor Swift, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, Kelly Clarkson, Keith Urban and hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley – were in town for country's biggest night, but some of the genre's heaviest hitters walked away uncharacteristically empty-handed.

Meanwhile, duo Florida Georgia Line, one of the newer acts over the last few years, walked away with two awards: single of the year for "Cruise" and vocal duo of the year.
