“Nashville” Season 4 will give fans the music they’ve been dying to hear all summer. The first photos from the premiere have been released, and it looks like viewers will get quite a performance from Juliette (Hayden Panettiere) and guest star Steven Tyler.
As previously reported, Tyler will perform a duet with Juliette. It’s likely to promote her Patsy Cline biopic. The Aerosmith frontman hinted that they’d have a “Crazy” duet together. Juliette won't be the only one spending time with the rockstar. Luke (Will Chase) will also catch their performance.
While Juliette enjoys the limelight, her personal life will be falling apart. “With Juliette’s starring role in the Patsy Cline biopic, she is at an all-time career high, but is hitting a personal low,” the synopsis teases. “Meanwhile Avery, separated from Juliette, tends to baby Cadence at his parents’ home in Texas.”
Will she be able to accept her postpartum depression while she is promoting the movie? With her husband and her baby hours away in Texas, she might start to miss them, but she won’t accept her disorder just yet. It seems like she’ll still be trying to drown herself in work for a while.
Another still show her talking to Rayna (Connie Britton). According to TVLine, the premiere will show an angry Juliette trying to get out of her recording contract with Highway 65 Records. Will Rayna let one of her only artists go? “Contracts are made to be broken,” showrunner Dee Johnson told TVLine.
Unfortunately, Rayna barely appears in these “Nashville” Season 4 photos, and Deacon (Charles Esten) doesn’t appear at all. Viewers are waiting to find out if it was his heart monitor that flatlined in the Season 3 finale, but they’ll just have to wait for the Season 4 premiere.
“Nashville” Season 4 starts on Wednesday, Sept. 23, at 10 p.m. EDT on ABC.
