Connie Britton cast in ABC musical drama 'Nashville'

Connie-Britton.jpg Connie Britton, the star of "American Horror Story" and "Friday Night Lights" has just been cast in the upcoming musical drama "Nashville." Airing on ABC, the show centers itself in the Nashville music scene. Britton will indeed be singing, according to Deadline.

She'll be playing Rayna, a star at the pinnacle of her career. Hayden Panettiere will play Juliette Barnes, a new star coming up in the world. Eric Close will play her husband. Powers Boothe and Jonathan Jackson will round out the cast.

Rayna will be forced by her record label to team up with Juliette when her latest album doesn't perform the way it should have. This mother of two is the only one bringing home the bacon, and this doesn't help. We're thrilled to see Britton back on the small screen.
