connie britton nashville premiere 'Nashville' premiere debuts early: Watch Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere duke it outYou’ll probably want to drop everything you’re doing and watch the premiere of ABC’s “Nashville” now that the first episode of the excellent new drama is available online. If you’re a fan of powerful women, country music, Connie Britton and excellent television (or any combination thereof), this is your new favorite show.

Starring Britton as an aging country superstar (think Reba McEntire) who’s being pushed aside at her record label by their new teen queen, played by Hayden Panettiere, who’s like a mean, bitchy Taylor Swift, “Nashville” is definitely one of the fall’s best new shows.
