It’s finally happening, “Nashville” fans! After four seasons, Deacon (Charles Esten) and Rayna (Connie Britton) are going to walk down the aisle in Season 4, episode 11 of the ABC show. Rayna quickly put together a ceremony after Deacon popped the question in the midseason finale. However, their wedding, much like their relationship, will have plenty of drama.
Deacon is fiercely protective of the women he loves and he isn’t going to like it when paparazzi get in Maddie’s (Lennon Stella) face after the rehearsal dinner. “Deacon’s hot-headed reaction casts a pall on the plans and forces a change of venue,” the episode 11 synopsis reveals. Not only are they going to be moving their wedding at the last minute, Maddie is going to be freaked out after Deacon assaults a photographer. Watch the paparazzi scene in a sneak-peek video below:
Deacon and Rayna’s wedding wouldn’t be complete without some music. Expect performances from Deacon, Scarlett (Clare Bowen) and Gunnar (Sam Palladio) as well as Maddie and Daphne (Maisy Stella) in this episode, titled “Forever and Always.” Watch Scarlett and Gunnar’s performance below:
The wedding will have an all-star guest list. Though they won’t be performing, country music fans will also see cameos from Rascal Flatts member Jay DeMarcus and singer/songwriter Jim Lauderdale in the winter premiere. Also attending will be Tandy (Judith Hoag), Bucky (David Alford) Layla (Aubrey Peeples), Maddie’s boyfriend Colt (Keean Johnson) and Avery (Jonathan Jackson).
Unfortunately, not all Deacon and Rayna’s wedding guests will have a good time. Layla will still be mourning Jeff (Oliver Hudson), and Avery will be doing publicity for Juliette (Hayden Panettiere). “Avery is struggling to keep up with the lies Juliette is forcing him to message to press in her absence,” the synopsis reveals. The media doesn’t realize that Juliette is in rehab for postpartum depression, and it’ll be difficult for Avery to maintain the façade for much longer.
“Nashville” Season 4, episode 11 airs Wednesday, March 16 at 10 p.m. EST on ABC.
