Our anticipation had been building since we caught a glimpse of the drama in ABC’s exclusive trailer, but the excitement for television’s new series Nashville had more than country music fans ready to tune in. Everyone’s been on the edge of their seats for the October 10th premier at 10 pm ET anxiously waiting to see if they will be Team Rayna or Team Juliette, but it looks like they wont be the only players in this game.
On October 3rd ABC and Big Machine Records announced their exclusive partnership for Nashville. The leading independent Nashville-based record label, home to superstars like T-Swift, Rascal Flatts, and Tim McGraw, have joined forces with the major network to release and market music from the new series, and by doing so are causing quite a buzz in the songwriting world.
Many cast members will join TV favorites, Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere, and be ready to show off their talents and steal the spotlight. Charles Esten, Jonathan Jackson, Clare Bowen and Sam Palladio are a few of the names you will soon be plugging into your iTunes search, as all cast members will be singing original content created for the series by breakout songwriters.Fans of the show, and most importantly the music, will be able to download all original songs each week on iTunes and ABC’s Music Lounge… but it doesn’t stop there.
Music by Big Machine Label Group artists will also contribute to the sure-to-be, must-have, series soundtrack. The premiere episode of Nashville will open to Eli Young Band‘s No. 1 hit, “Even If It Breaks Your Heart,” and I’m sure you caught artists like Greg Bates, Eden’s Edge, and Justin Moore all in the very first episode.
Filmed entirely in Music City, this drama is built on Nashville ground and let’s the audience see behind the scenes of the country music world. Television has been waiting for this kind of dynamic powerhouse and with all of the accolades the series is already receiving, it is a must watch, must DVR, must replay over and over kind of show.
Be sure to tune in Wednesdays at 10 p.m.ET on ABC and let us know what you think of Nashville – the new TV series !
