'Nashville': Rayna to cross paths with Chris Young and Brantley Gilbert -- EXCLUSIVE

Posted on

Nashville Chris Young
ABC/Chris Hollo

On next week’s episode of Nashville, Rayna (Connie Britton) and Juliette (Hayden Panettierre) will celebrate the surprise success of their no-good-man anthem “Wrong Song” at a party thrown by their label, Edgehill Records.

While there, Rayna bumps into two real-life country stars, Chris Young and Brantley Gilbert, the latest artists to make cameos on the twangy drama. (See a bigger photo of the stars on set HERE) “It was pretty true to life since I’d had a number one and Neon CD release party at the very same location where our scene was shot,” Young tells EW. “And really, who doesn’t jump at the chance to meet Connie Britton?” Hey, the man’s got a point.

Catch Gilbert, Young, and a whole lot of catty drama between Rayna and Juliette when the episode airs on January 23 on ABC.
