In a glitzy new “get to know the characters” promo featuring: Connie Britton (Rayna), Hayden Panettiere (Scarlett), Claire Bowen (Scarlett), Charles Esten (Deacon), Lennon Stella (Maddie), Jonathan Jackson (Avery), Chris Carmack (Will) and Sam Palladio (Gunnar), the main characters of Nashville use poetic verse and lament on their lives and how music saves them in the first full-length teaser for the upcoming fifth season of the music city drama.
Nashville is set to bow on CMT in a two-hour season premiere on January 5th, with a 22 episode season, with Connie Britton anticipated to exit the show by the midway point.
Below is the verse said by Rayna, Juliette, Scarlett, Deacon, Will, Maddie, Avery and Gunnar:
We all break, that’s what makes us human
We tape ourselves together so that no one can see our flawed hearts
But not all who break are broken. Sometimes you have to break your own heart to put the pieces back in the right place
I’ve left a trail of destruction, hurt the people I love and let down the people who love me
I’m selfish, dishonest, and raw
Music that was something else, that’s the one undeniable pass
And if my choices make me, it’s my music that saves me
There’s all roads wrong or right
All choices dark and light
The place you’re meant to be
The face you’re meant to see
And every moment led me here to you
To my heart
