She was born in New York, but Nashville star Hayden Panettiere is becoming a down-home country girl.
The 24-year-old, who's engaged to boxer Wladimir Klitschko, is buying a home in Tennessee.
While a lot of her fellow cast and crew were buying homes in Nashville "pretty immediately" after the show began shooting, Panettiere tells PEOPLE that she wanted to take her time.

Opposites attract. Just ask Hayden Panettiere.
"I'm small, but he's large," the 5'2" Nashville star said on Wednesday's Ellen DeGeneres Show about her 6'6" fiancé, heavyweight boxing champion Wladimir Klitschko.
"That's how we met. I said, 'You're huge.' He said, 'You're tiny.' "

Looks like Charles Esten has fallen for a costar ...
Meet Blue, the actor's recently adopted yellow Lab, who starred as his dog last season on Nashville. Onscreen, the dog was a gift to his character, Deacon Claybourne, from Hayden Panettiere's country vixen Juliette Barnes. Though Deacon gave the dog away to a love interest (played by Susan Misner), Esten was not prepared to say goodbye to that sweet face.
While filming the show earlier this year, he decided to welcome the pup into his own family, which includes his three kids with wife Patty.

Leading in to Wednesday's finale, Bowen, 24, talks to PEOPLE about her accent, moving to the States, and what's next for the just-signed Scarlett.
