Nashville gives us more than just a dramatic television series. It gives us great music, and a lot of that has made its way into the homes and hearts of the viewers. The soundtracks from Nashville have become wildly popular with songs from all of the cast members in one way or another. Nashville has three main female characters: Rayna, Juliette, and Scarlett – all extremely diverse.
The show stars Rayna James (Connie Britton), an older but not yet retired, country icon. She has devoted fans and a long time successful career, but ultimately strives to develop her own label and get away from the top dogs that run her agenda. Rayna has two talented young daughters, Maddie and Daphne Conrad (Lennon and Maisy Stella). They have not yet been tainted by the industry and are one of the most talented duos on the show (and real life).
Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere) has always been in the shadow of Rayna James. She was raised by her mother in a trailer park and has worked hard to be as successful as she is, but she is rough around the edges. Throughout the show, she faces many trials and tribulations from the press, and her fan base is continuously up and down.
Scarlett O’Connor is not as grounded in the industry yet, as Juliette and Rayna are. She is an up-and-coming country singer, with a soft yet powerful voice, and a talented song writer. Her career kick started with the help of her once lover, Gunnar Scott, and Rayna James when she added Scarlett as the first artist to her label, Highway 65. Scarlett brings a new sound to country, with her innocence guiding her career.
Nashville is comprised of several other talented and important characters, such as: Deacon Claybourne (Charles Esten), Teddy Conrad (Eric Close), Avery Barkley (Jonathan Jackson), Gunnar Scott (Sam Palladio), and Will Lexington (Chris Carmack). The show has produced enough songs for you to fall in love with at least one. Let’s countdown the top 10 greatest songs from Nashville thus far.
