Thanks to the success of ABC's "Nashville," both Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere have enjoyed an unexpected side career in country music. On "Jimmy Kimmel Live," though, Britton said she actually feels guilty about it.
“I have albums out ... That is a joke to me," she said. "I walk around Nashville just apologizing to all the amazing country singers. I’m like, ‘I’m sorry, guys! Want a place on my album? You can have it! I’m really sorry.’”
One thing that makes her feel better about taking a piece of that Nashville pie is that the show hires real singer-singwriters from the city to contribute to all that original music on the show. In its first season alone, "Nashville" has released two soundtracks, featuring new songs by Britton and Panettiere.
And there are likely more soundtracks on the way now that ABC has picked up "Nashville" for a second season. One thing that's less certain is where the show is going to be filmed. If a deal can't be worked out with Nashville, the show could move production to Los Angeles. Add to that the fact that the day-to-day producer is leaving, and there may be some noticeable differences in Season 2.
Check out Connie Britton on the Season 1 finale of "Nashville," Wednesday, May 22 at 10 p.m. ET on ABC, while "Jimmy Kimmel Live" airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on the same network.
