Watch 10 Killer Performances From “Nashville” That Have Us Pumped For Season 3

Last night was the Season 3 premiere of “Nashville,” and, as usual, it had me at the edge of my bed, wine in hand and slack-jawed. The story lines just keep getting better and better, and, if possible, the stars’ musical performances are doing the same. From Hayden Panettiere and Connie Britton to Lennon and Maisy Stella, the show’s actors also have some killer chops. If these 10 killer musical performances haven’t sold you on Season 3 yet, I don’t know what will. Keep reading »

9 Ways “Nashville” Could Play Out Hayden Panettiere’s Real-Life Pregnancy

She’s five-foot-nothin’, but Hayden Panettiere is about to pop out a very large baby, y’all. The 24-year-old “Nashville” actress is officially expecting her first child with longtime fiancé and incredibly tall human, Wladimir Klitschko. As excited as I was to hear the news about Hayden, who’s previously stated she was “born to be a mother,” my knee-jerk reaction was “OH MY GOD, this gives the ‘Nashville’ people SO many possibilities for her (soon to be “pregnant”?) character, Juliette Barnes.” Naturally, I’ve compiled a short list of ways the folks over at ABC could play out Hayden’s real-life bun in the oven. Warning: *Show spoilers* Keep reading »

Watch This: Carrie Underwood’s Epic Cover Of Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You”

Carrie Underwood Covers Dolly Parton's I Will Always Love You
Daaaaaamn, Girl!

Last night, I went to a benefit concert called, “All For The Hall,” which was put together by Vince Gill and Keith Urban to benefit the Country Music Hall of Fame. Reba was there, and Brett Eldredge, Kacey Musgraves, Lee Ann Womack, Ronnie Milsap, Deana Carter, David Nail, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and Brantley Gilbert (who, I’m sorry, gives me intense douche chills). It was one of the best shows I’ve ever been to, and all the performances were killer (except for Brantley’s, mostly because I was distracted by his gratuitous wallet chains), but the best moment happened, as it usually does, when Carrie Underwood walked out on stage. “I will not be doing this song any justice, but I’m doing it anyway,” she said lied, before belting out a shockingly beautiful cover of Dolly Parton’s classic, “I Will Always Love You,” backed by Vince and Keith. I posted on Instagram last night that I was stuck permanently in the swooooon position after witnessing this performance, and it’s true. I woke up still swooning. Caution: watching this video might cause you to swoon uncontrollably too. But man, so worth it. [Popdust]

This week marks the year anniversary of my big move to Nashville. I can’t believe it’s already been a year. On the one hand, it feels like I’ve been here forever, and on the other, it feels like about 2 weeks has passed since we sold all our stuff and set off on our cross-country road trip. I was talking to an acquaintance at a party the other night when I stopped abruptly after referring to myself as “new in town” — “Wait,” I said, “do I still get to call myself a newbie after a year?” Answers varied, but one thing I’ve realized about relocating to a new city is that the settling-in process is less about a certain amount of time passing and more about the milestones you reach along the way. Hitting the 3-month mark in a new zip code is decidedly less exciting than finally tracking down a new hairstylist you trust with your highlights, for example. Here are 10 signs that you’ve finally settled in to your new home: Keep reading »

Nicole Kidman On Nashville Life & Why Keith Urban Wins The “World’s Most Romantic Husband” Award

Nicole Kidman March InStyle Cover

“I’m very country at heart. I have a real desire to be outdoors, a desire for simplicity — a slightly slower, relaxed approach to life. A community, not a big-city feel. That’s what I grew up with, and it’s what I prefer.”

–Nicole Kidman talks about her laid-back life in Nashville in this month’s InStyle cover story, and as a Music City resident, I enthusiastically co-sign her statements (for the record, I still haven’t run into her at Whole Foods, and I’m still really sad about it). She also confirmed widespread suspicions that her hubby, country star Keith Urban, is the most romantic man in the world: “For every single night he’s away, he leaves me a love letter,” she says. “Every single night of our relationship.” Damn, Keith, way to raise the bar for every other guy, especially the week of Valentine’s Day.
