In case you haven't heard, Connie Britton is back, y'all! We've got an exclusive sneak peek at her new drama "Nashville" (premieres Wed., Oct. 10, 10 p.m. ET on ABC), which tops many critical lists for best new drama of the season and got HuffPost TV critic Mo Ryan's stamp of approval.

Britton plays Rayna Jaymes, a country music legend who's now struggling to keep her career afloat in a changing industry filled with wannabe pop star crossover successes like Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere).

Watch our first look clip above to see Rayna take no prisoners when her long-time record company not only suggests she go out on tour with Juliette, but that she open for her ... ouch.

Tell us: Are you excited for "Nashville"?
