“Nashville” Season 4 will add another celebrity guest star to their roster. Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler is headed to the ABC drama, and he might get to act in some dramatic scenes. After all, he is going to be onscreen with drama queen Juliette (Hayden Panettiere).

Tyler, who is currently recording a country album, tweeted a set photo with Panettiere on Tuesday. It looks like he’ll be performing “Crazy,” but will it be Aerosmith’s hit song or Patsy Cline’s famous tune? His hashtag makes it seem like the latter.
“Nashville” fans will remember that Juliette starred in a movie as Cline in Season 3. It looks like the show hasn’t forgotten the singer’s movie debut. Promoting the Patsy Cline biopic will be one more thing that Juliette can distract herself with. At the end of Season 3, it was revealed that she was suffering from postpartum depression. However, even after an intervention, she refused to acknowledge that she has a problem.
Performing with rock stars and promoting movies aren’t the solution to make her feel happy again. In May, producers hinted that her hyper focused attitude is going to backfire. “It probably feels for her, at least initially, like the form of a solution,” showrunner Dee Johnson told the Hollywood Reporter. “But it's attacking a symptom and not the real cause of the problem. I don’t think things will go quite as well as for her as she thinks they will with that decision having been made.”
Will Tyler help Juliette accept what’s happening? Details about his storyline are under wraps, but don’t expect him to be around for too long. The rocker hasn’t given up his place in Aerosmith. “[The country album] is a side project, which has now turned into a love of life,” Tyler told Rolling Stone. “I think we got something here that the radio would love to play. Look, that's why I'm in it. I love to take the f------power to wow to the 100th degree. It's just what I do.”
“Nashville” Season 4 premieres Wednesday, Sept. 23, at 10 p.m. EDT on ABC. Are you excited to see Tyler on the show? Sound off in the comments section below!
