Nashville Will Be Back on TV Soon – but Which Star May Not Stay with the Series?

Originally posted 08/24/2016 12:45PM

A version of this story originally appeared on EW.com.

The CMT debut of Nashville now has an official premiere date. Contrary to headlines about the former ABC drama returning in December (what network debuts anything in December?), it turns out the basic cable network is rolling out the show's fifth season on Jan. 5.

In the meantime, we're hearing Rayna Jaymes is likely to take her final curtain call in season 5. Star Connie Britton has only signed on for about 10 episodes of the new season. One source close to the show insists, however, that they still remain hopeful they'll get her on board for more and that the deal is not yet final. We're hearing costar Hayden Panettiere is fully on board.

Cassadee Pope, Jonathan Jackson, Charles Esten and Scotty McCreery Play Ball for a Good Cause

This is softball, country-music style: Cassadee Pope swinging at six pitches before hitting a foul ball and running safely to first base. Her teammate, Nashville's Charles Esten, emerging from the dugout to throw, not balls, but free T-shirts to fans in the stands. Mickey Guyton rounding the bases while clutching her little so-ugly-he’s-cute mutt, Charlie. And – oh yes – the game lasted four innings and the final score was a tie, 18-18.

Is Nashville Star Alicia Witt the Smartest Woman in Hollywood?

Originally posted 05/24/2016 05:00PM

Nashville may be canceled, but newcomer Alicia Witt has plenty of other talents to fall back on – in fact, she may just be one of the smartest actresses in Hollywood.

Before she was an actress, Witt was a child prodigy and classical pianist. She was cast on her first film, David Lynch's Dune after his casting director saw her recite Shakespeare on That's Incredible when she was just 5 years old.
