ABC's Nashville has been a hit this fall for TV viewers.  My wife Lori is hooked on it and will not miss a Wednesday night episode.

The show features Rayna Jaymes, played by Connie Britton, whose character is aging and struggling to remain in the spotlight.  Her young rival, Juliette Barnes, played by Hayden Panattierre is the rising star on a direct collision course with Rayna Jaymes.

Mix this in with crooked politics, adulterous affairs and sexual tension, and you have a hit TV show.

Carrie Underwood says the real Nashville is much tamer.  There aren't the things happening in real life as they are on the TV show.  At least to her knowledge.
