Note: Spoiler Alert!

The critically acclaimed drama series “Nashville” returns for a second season.  In the season one finale Rayna and Deacon's final moments left their lives hanging in the balance. One thing is for certain… their relationship will never be easy. Rayna will continue to be driven by her desire to expand upon her music empire, signing new talent, and going head to head with a new label chief. Juliette is poised for a fresh start after her success was briefly mired by her short-lived marriage, an extortion plot, and the shocking death of her mother. As she continues to work towards shaping her sound and style, she'll discover there isn't a lot of room for error as emerging artists continue to nip at her heels. Deacon's fall from grace will force him to evolve from his role as the band leader to a position outside of his comfort zone. The question is whether or not there will be enough time to commit to his most important role of all…being a father.

With Rayna's record label backing her, Scarlett is still seeking out that magic she harnessed with Gunnar. Is Scarlett a flash in the pan or will she self destruct before she's had her moment in the spotlight? Gunnar is tragically aware that his window to stardom is beginning to close, and he had better get his head back in the game.  Did he ever really have what it takes to be a headliner or songwriter? Avery has had it all and lost it all. This time he's made an unlikely ally, and nothing is going to keep him down or prevent him from getting back on that path to stardom.  Teddy's life has been turned upside-down since his break with Peggy, but nothing prepared him for how far she would be willing to go to get what she wants.
