With interviews from Britton, Esten, Callie Khouri (creator/executive producer) and R.J. Cutler (director/executive producer), ON THE RECORD shares how important the song, "No One Will Ever Love You" is for the narrative of NASHVILLE and Rayna Jaymes and Deacon Claybourne's deep history together.
According to Cutler the song personifies Rayna and Deacon's relationship: "This is a perfect example of a song that works in the moment, works in the narrative moment of the episode, and fits right in totally with what we wanted."
"Nashville's" new original songs being released this week include "I Will Fall," written by Tyler James and Kate York, and "If I Didn't Know Better," written by John Paul White and Arum Rae.
