CMT gets ready to kick up some dust with new ‘Nashville’ trailer


Weddings, babies and teenage emancipations — oh, my! Fans of “Nashville,” rejoice: New episodes of your favorite country music drama are on the way.

CMT, which picked up the TV series for a fifth season after ABC had canceled it, released the first official trailer for the return of the show centered around the always-complicated lives of country music stars Rayna James (Connie Britton) and Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere).

Whatever may have changed during the show’s network relocation, “Nashville” doesn’t appear to have lost its flair for the dramatic, with the trailer featuring plenty of blood, tears and kissing, sometimes simultaneously.


The trailer also hints at revealing what took place in the moments before Juliette’s plane sent up a distress signal and went missing in the season-four finale.

The two-hour season premiere of “Nashville” will air Jan. 5, but CMT will whet appetites by showing the first full hour on Dec. 15.
