Connie Britton To Play Country Legend In Drama 'Nashville'
Connie Britton will play the role of Rayna James, a 40 year old Nashville music legend, whose star is waning. Her record label asks her to pair up with Juliette Barnes (played by Hayden Panettiere), a teen sensation, on tour. If she refuses, she faces losing the support of the label and any promotion of her recent album. The fact that she is the sole breadwinner for her family adds pressure to her to conform. Nashville will be produced by Lionsgate and Abc Studios. Previously, Britton was seen playing the role of Tami Taylor in Friday Night Lights, reprising the role from the film of the same name. She played the role between 2006-11 and earned herself two Emmy nominations in the process. Later this year, she will be seen appearing alongside Keira Knightley and Steve Carell in 'Seeking a Friend for the End of the World'.Connie's co-star in Friday Night Lights, Taylor Kitsch, has also found success in the film industry, landing his breakthrough role in the forthcoming sci-fi adventure John Carter.
