Since learning about Nashville, the pilot for the ABC drama that seems an awful lot like Country Strong, we've been searching for all of the casting news we could. And we could not have cast this better ourselves (unless we cast Gwyneth Paltrow and Leighton Meester.)
The pilot is described as a family soap set against the backdrop of the Nashville music scene, revolving around one star at her peak and another on the rise. Friday Night Lights and American Horror Story's Connie Britton will play the dimming starlet while Hayden Panettiere (Heroes, Scream 4) will play the up-and-coming princess of Country.
If it's half as good as Country Strong, there are two things we can be sure of: 1. all of the songs will be on our iPod as soon as they're released/leaked, and 2. ABC has a hit on their hands.
