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.

Nashville Blog: Chaley Rose on Zoey's Soon-to-Be Broken Heart

Originally posted 10/09/2014 03:00PM

Every week, a member of the Nashville cast will blog about the latest episode of the ABC hit. This week, Chaley Rose (Zoey Dalton) writes about the third episode and how Gunnar Scott (Sam Palladio) is bound to break her character's heart.

Zoey is madly in love with Gunnar (Sam Palladio). She wants to be that girl for him. She doesn't want to replace Scarlett (Clare Bowen), but she wants to have what they had. She also wants what she wants and and that's the dream of singing and making music and making money doing it. She's not willing to let anything stand in her way.

The next episode is definitely looking up for Zoey, which is great, but after that it's definitely going to stop going her way. She just sees the bond Scarlett and Gunnar will always have and senses it will always be a thing between them. It's that songwriting chemistry they have, which kicked off their romance in the first place.

Nashville Blog: Oliver Hudson on Jeff Fordham's Problem with Women

Originally posted 10/02/2014 05:30PM

Every week, a member of the Nashville cast will blog about the latest episode on ABC. This week, Oliver Hudson (Jeff Fordham) weighs in on the second episode and how his character got a dressing down from the head of the label for "hating" female artists and driving down profits.

Jeff seems to be unraveling slowly – it feels like he's verging on a mental breakdown and spiraling out of control. He's alone and shivering in the corner of an apartment by himself!

To be candid, it's fun playing the villain. But once you establish the villain, you want to understand why he is the way he is. Even villains have souls. Why did he become this way? We will explore that a little bit. A few things have been written already to plant a seed on why Jeff may be the way he is. Technically, the show is dealing with 16 characters and there are a crazy number of storylines.

When Nashville's Chip Esten stepped on stage at the show's recreated Bluebird Cafe set on Tuesday, he shook hands with his backing band, adjusted the guitar strap bearing the name of his alter ego, Deacon Claybourne, and grinned wide before flawlessly belting out an aching country tune.
