NASHVILLE: THE WHOLE STORY features clips that tell the intersecting tales of music industry greats Rayna James and Juliette Barnes -- one a legend, another on the rise -- as they make their own ways in life, love and in their careers. Rayna's lead guitarist, Deacon, shares a tortured past with her, but has also opened his heart and his arms to Juliette, as Rayna struggles to save her marriage to Teddy, who's running for Mayor. The election pits Teddy against longtime family friend Coleman Carlisle and quickly turns ugly, thanks to the machinations of Rayna's plotting father, Lamar. Meanwhile struggling artist Avery, budding singer/songwriter Scarlett and soulful troubadour Gunnar form a love triangle that produces not only incredible passion and moving but heartfelt music.
Below are previews of the next two episodes (spoiler alert):
