Kicking off the festivities on October 1 is a NASHVILLE Marathon, starting at 3:30pE with a special NASHVILLE encore edition of THE BIG INTERVIEW, following host Dan Rather as he tours some of the series’ most iconic sets, and speaks with stars Connie Britton and Charles Esten about their careers, personal lives, and their roles on the show.

“AXS TV is proud to be the broadcast home of season four of NASHVILLE,” said Michele M.

This is a perfect chance for fans both old and new to relive all the intensity of NASHVILLE’s climactic fourth season.”
Produced by Lionsgate, ABC Studios, and Opry Entertainment, NASHVILLE is set against the backdrop of the city’s music scene and follows Rayna Jaymes and Juliette Barnes. Both women face personal and professional challenges as they navigate their paths as artists and individuals. Surrounding them and often complicating their lives are their family, friends and, in some cases, lovers, as well as the up-and-coming performers and songwriters trying to get ahead in the business. Music City can mean so many things to different people. In NASHVILLE, musicians and songwriters are at the heart of the storm driven by their own ambitions. Some are fueled by their creativity and passion for fame. Others struggle to cope with the pressures of success and are doing everything in their power to stay on top.
NASHVILLE stars Connie Britton as Rayna Jaymes, Hayden Panettiere as Juliette Barnes, Clare Bowen as Scarlett O’Connor, Chris Carmack as Will Lexington, Will Chase as Luke Wheeler, Charles Esten as Deacon Claybourne, Jonathan Jackson as Avery Barkley, Sam Palladio as Gunnar Scott, Maisy Stella as Daphne Conrad, Lennon Stella as Maddie Conrad and Aubrey Peeples as Layla Grant.
In addition to its dramatic plots and unforgettable performances, NASHVILLE has featured a number of impressive guest appearances from some of the biggest names in entertainment, including Florida Georgia Line, Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, Brad Paisley, Luke Bryan, Katie Couric, and Conan O’Brien, just to name a few.
