Actress Hayden Panettiere is planning to start married life in Tennessee after falling in love with the country music capital while filming Nashville in the city.

The star relocated to the southern state early last year (12) as production began on the musical drama and the 24 year old admits she can see a future for herself and her fiance, Ukrainian boxer Wladimir Klitschko, in Nashville.

She tells, "After a year and a half of living here (in Nashville), I felt that I had enough personal investment here, that I want to have a grounding here, even if something happens to the show. Knock on wood it won't! But I have amazing friends here and this just feels good as a home base."

And Panettiere is confident the sportsman will adjust well to life in the city: "He fits in anywhere. He's a very worldly man!"

However, the actress, who confirmed her engagement to Klitschko in October (13), confesses she has yet to start planning her big day: "With both of our schedules, it's crazy trying to schedule anything, much less a wedding."
