AVClub: It’s hard to remember, but back at the start of the fall 2012 TV season, Nashville was the new series that was garnering the most buzz. Anchored by Connie Britton, who was riding high after finishing a stellar run on Friday Night Lights, led by Thelma And Louise writer Callie Khouri and her husband and music director T Bone Burnett, the show promised an All About Eve-type drama about a country star threatened by a young upstart. What it delivered instead was a straight-up soap set in the country-music industry. By the end of the first season, we had seen the end of Rayna’s marriage, Deacon falling off the wagon after Maddie’s parenting reveal, and Scarlett and Avery breaking up, with Gunnar proposing to Scarlett. Now that was a season finale.
