It was arguably the most-anticipated premiere of the season, filled with big, brassy country performances (by Connie Britton's Rayna and Hayden Panettiere's Juliette), crying drama queens (that would be Juliette, again) and, of course, sex (Juliette! Behave!).
But was ABC's heavily hyped Nashville all it promised to be?
Here's what y'all (plus some country stars!) had to say:

Connie Britton's TV resumé is nothing if not well-rounded.
The actress, 45, has played working mom Tami Taylor on Friday Night Lights, the haunted and troubled Vivien on American Horror Story, and now, she'll portray fading country star Rayna James on the upcoming Nashville.
But for all her characters' differences, Britton is keen on bringing one unifying characteristic to each of the roles.
"It's important in whatever character I play that I show as many different levels of what it is to be a woman as I can. That includes being sexy!" Britton tells Redbook in its November issue.

From Nashville to Hollywood!
Before she hit the red carpet at the Emmys on Sunday, Hayden Panettiere visited the Emergen-C Gift Lounge in Los Angeles.
A glowing Panettiere perused the sneakers at the New Balance booth while talking about her recent move for new show, Nashville.
"It's all barbecue and I love it way too much," she said about what she's been eating off-set.
"I now have to run a lot more than I used to. I try to run every day if I'm not too tired," the svelte starlet added.
Nashville, a musical drama which also stars Connie Britton, premieres Oct. 10.

Is it Music City – or Drama City?
Hayden Panettiere and Connie Britton are going head-to-head (more like voice-to-voice) in Nashville, ABC's upcoming musical drama that pits a veteran country star against the latest ingénue in cowboy boots.
"My character, Juliette Barnes, is very edgy," Panettiere, 22, says of her on-screen alter ego in a preview of the series (watch below), which premieres Oct. 10. "She comes off very diva-ish and bratty and snotty sometimes."

It's got six bedrooms, five baths, and – according to TV lore – a whole lot of ghosts in the basement.
The Los Angeles mansion that's a star in its own right on the creepy FX hit American Horror Story will likely go up for sale in 2012, and for a mere $17 million, you can own the most awesome piece of show memorabilia around.
The AHS house, a.k.a. the Alfred F. Rosenheim Mansion, is a three-story home plus a grand ballroom (formerly a chapel) that features Tiffany stained glass widows and light fixtures – just as one of the deceased characters points out on the show.

For years, Connie Britton has been hard at work on her acclaimed show Friday Night Lights and most recently on the new hit American Horror Story.
But the actress, 44, has just been cast in her most rewarding role yet: Mom. She's adopted a 9-month-old baby boy from Ethiopia, Britton tells PEOPLE exclusively.
After a three-year-long adoption process, the actress's dream of motherhood came true about a week ago, after she returned from the African country with her son Yoby – a nickname for Eyob, his given name.
"I am thanking my lucky stars every day," Britton, 44, tells PEOPLE.
