I'm still watching - one of my favorites. But I'm the only one watching it - which is fine, it means I can watch it whenever I want - I don't have to wait for someone else to be home.

My wife, middle child, and I watch this together. Definitely one of our favorite new shows.

Do the actors sing their own parts, or are they dubbed?

She definitely has one of those like it or hate it voices. It's kind of squeaky/nasally, but it's also rather sweet.

"I'm a girl" was the first song that struck me as truly terrible.

(I realize it's supposed to be, but others are supposed to be bubblegum pop too and I didn't think they were nearly this bad.)

Maybe they wanted to make sure no viewers would think "it's not THAT bad".

It's interesting to be riding around Nashville and all of the sudden see a church or business with a parking lot full of trucks and travel trailers. Takes a moment to realize what is going on and then "OH! They must be filming Nashville." So, you watch each episode, hoping to not miss the scene they must have been shooting.


Also, the guy that plays Rayna's manager, David Alford, use to be the executive director for a local theatre group and acts in some of local plays. It is cool he got a part in the show. We admired the direction he took the local theatre.

I admit, I probably would have never given this show a first watching if it weren't about "Nashville".

My wife asked me to give this a try, and we've caught up on every episode but the most recent one.

I'm not really into country music, and it's a bit soapy, but it's keeping me interested.

But by far the thing that has really impressed me is that the actors aren't faking it. I first noticed it with the guitar playing - they know how to play. Usually it's blatantly obvious when an actor is faking it.

Doing a bit of googling I then found out they're all doing their own singing, too. Color me impressed.

ETA: and yet another Aussie who sounds like an authentic American (Scarlett). They seem to be everywhere!

Yes they all sing and play instruments. Its great. The only exception, I believe the guy who got out of prison and sat on the motel bed and played the guitar, I do not believe he was playing.

That is impressive. I thought they were, but wasn't sure. I've seen most of the actors and actresses in other roles that weren't musical at all, so it's weird. I love Connie Britton. She's an incredible actress, but I had no idea she could sing.

Don't shoot me, but I don't like her voice. I won't say she can't sing, but she's not good.... not good enough, in my opinion.

And yes, I'm still watching for now.

I happened to be in the neighborhood when they were setting up for the bar scene at Sperry's. Sure looked like a lot of equipment and preparation for about two minutes screen time.

Yay! I hope the thing with Teddy goes through and we never hear about the politics again.

Was that on a Sunday morning?

We rode by Sperry's one Sunday morning and the parking lot was packed but I don't remember any SoundCheck trucks and the such. Just a bunch of cars. We figured some kind of private party.

Still watching and I enjoy it a lot. I guess Scarlett
Spoiler:
isn't going anywhere since Rayna is going to sign her to her new label. Ugh, still don't like Scarlett, but at least now her storyline will have something to do with the main characters (Rayna and Juliette) other than just being Deacon's niece. Still not sure why Avery is around, but Rayna will probably end up signing him, too.

No, it was a Friday morning. I was buying a gift certificate for the spa next door. I parked in the spa lot on the Sperry's side and I thought a gaffer was about to attack me for doing so.

I had the whole season recorded and just caught up over the last 2 weeks. I enjoy the show quite a bit. Scarlett is a character I like a lot. She mostly isn't involved with the shenanigans that the others are involved in.

I like Scarlett's voice, though I can understand why some might not. It's a thin reedy type of voice as opposed to a full throaty one. But it's still pretty like a bird's song.

She has enough of her own drama to deal with.

Interesting that two of the main characters are foreign. Clare Bowen (Scarlett) is from Australia and Sam Palladio (Gunnar) is British and it's strange to hear them speak with their native accents.

I finally had some time to marathon my way through the episodes thus far. I'm really enjoying this show much more than I should, especially given that I'm not crazy about country music. It helps that most of the music is "neo-country" which isn't terribly different from pop music, and there is very little that is classic "country/western" music.

About the only plot line that I'm not caring for right now is Avery's, mostly because the character is fairly unlikable. I also don't like where I see Gunnar's story going either.

Overall, though, I like that these people all feel real, like every single bit of this show could and likely does happen on a daily basis in Nashville. It really is a refreshing change from Smash, which really should be a similar show but is so laughably artificial by comparison.

I am kind of embarrassed to admit that this is my current favorite show on TV. (A country music based girly soap opera?? No way!!)

Does anyone remember who Lamar was talking to on the phone when he had his heart attack?

I think it was the tall guy who told Rayna's sister about Teddy's girlfriend leaking his divorce info to the press. My god, this is a soap opera.
