    CMT seems to be doing right by NASHVILLE and its fan base. I am marking my datebook!

    Thank you for your support of this show. When ABC once again under-estimated the passion and power of a cult-following show (All My Children, One Life to Live), I am glad CMT picked it up. The show employees so many people here in Nashville, from local actors and songwriters to the venues where some of the shots are filmed. It appeared that ABC wanted the city to practically play for the series to air. The state gave so many tax incentives. But to be fair, the show has made Nashville one of the hottest cities in the U.S., with more than 90 people moving here daily. We appreciate your coverage and for keeping Jonathan Jackson, Scott Reeves, Hayden P and Connie on our screens.

    This makes me SO happy, ABC is the least fan friendly network on TV, and that is why their ratings are tanking at last place, and CMT should know that this addition to their lineup will skyrocket their ratings, we will watch other shows and this could be a beginning for many scripted series on your network. This is Christmas coming early for me, and I am sure that thousands of others feel the same way. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Joan
