Originally posted 12/03/2015 01:55PM

Days after her first public appearance since seeking treatment for postpartum depression, Hayden Panettiere was on her Nashville costars' minds – and in their hearts.

Connie Britton, who plays country queen (and Panettiere's character Juliette's onetime mentor) Rayna, and Jonathan Jackson, who appears as her estranged husband Avery, both spoke about the actress's progress at Wednesday night's CMT Artists of the Year awards.

"We have connected, and I think she's doing really well," said Britton, 48, told the Associated Press. "She's right where she needs to be, and that's really good, and we all support her in that."

Nashville Sneak Peek: Watch Deacon and Luke's Tension Turn Violent (VIDEO)

Originally posted 02/03/2015 10:00AM

When we last saw Nashville's foremost love triangle, Rayna Jaymes (Connie Britton) opted to break her cycle of dysfunctional relationships. Unfortunately for fiancé Luke Wheeler (Will Chase), that also meant breaking off their engagement.

In an exclusive clip from the Music City soap's winter premiere on Wednesday, Luke pays a visit to Rayna's ex Deacon Claybourne (Charles Esten). Given the longstanding rivalry between the two men, it's just a matter of moments before things get physical. Actually, seconds: 26 to be precise.

After Rayna jilted him, Luke took his anger out on several reception chairs. But his reaction to Deacon's claim that he didn't play a part in the split is positively nasty: "It's always been about you – every damn day since you two met. I should have known better than to go sniffin' around that b----."
