"I'm Tired Of Pretending" centralized around a nexus of daddy issues. As Maddie becomes caught up in the implausibly juvenile interactions of Deacon and Teddy, Rayna and Tandy struggle with their respective torment over Lamar's imprisonment. And, once again, the James-Claybuorne-Conrad-Wyatt clan tangle themselves into a narrative fit for a backwoods country song.
So, who are Johnnyswim? Great songwriters, for one. Their EP's title track and "Home" are sweetly intense his-and-hers stories set to grooves which are not easily pigeonholed.
If you want to save some coin while seeing the world, winter is prime time for wanderlust -- and we know just where you should go. Here are five awesome destinations where the colder part of the year bears off-peak affordability.
It's always uplifting to see marginalized individuals, stand up for what they believe in and reclaim the power of their identity in a repressive setting. Although, the advocacy emotes less inspiration when it's juxtaposed with a phoned in ménage à trois that would even feel low brow for "Gossip Girl."
Like any other college student, I've taken different paths of learning that shed light on my passion of telling stories. One of my most recent opportunities was a phone interview with Wynonna Judd. She told me about her career story and why a strict formula for success does not exist.
LOVE146--an international charity that provides aftercare and rehabilitation for children rescued from sexual slavery--has collaborated with Nashville-based rock group Band of Love on a new video to increase public awareness on this issue.
There are sardonic artists in Nashville and, alternately, singer/songwriters who treat the stage like a confessional. But House manages to pull off both wry and sincere at once. He then he sets it all to viscid melodies that stick in your ear like a warm hunk of taffy.
"It Must Be You" features the anticipated exposure of the Nashville elite and their role in the music industry. Headed to the polo match, Rayna tells Tandy that she feels out of place at "big hat events" and we soon see it's not just because she's typically down to earth.
The music industry is an unforgiving world, filled with confusing vendettas, strategic love affairs and sometimes even #hashtags, but at least Rayna James can sing again.
For an episode with such a snarky title, "You're No Angel Yourself" was surprisingly sympathetic. Juliette, Deacon and Gunnar -- all frustratingly stubborn denizens of "Nashville" -- were rounded out by their respective strengths over the course of the hour.
Close on the heels of the release of his acclaimed second studio album, Australian singer/songwriter Mark Wilkinson started his first U.S. tour earlie...
Miss Rayna James has lost her voice, and it would be very sad and shocking, if three weeks of "Nashville" promos hadn't explicitly told us that would happen.
The South has evolved y'all. Ok, maybe that's speaking a bit prematurely, but on a recent visit to Music City, AKA Nashville, TN, what I found beyond the deep fried everything, was a city on the verge of being socially awesome for the gay community.
Welcome to the brand new "Nashville," where Juliette's act is not the only thing that has been rid of its "bubble gum and glitter." A slightly mopey -- though necessary -- episode, "Never No More" is all about constructing the major arcs of the second season, and boy, are there problems that need solving.
Juliette turns on a news story about prayers for the "Queen of Country" and angrily calls her manager, snarling aggressively that she wants to "pray." It seems silly in the moment, almost enough to make us wonder whether Juliette is going to use prayers as part of her confusing revenge plot ... and then she does!
When you think of the city of Nashville, you probably think of the city where country music performers are born. Songs in this city are plentiful, and now it has become home to the same name hit ABC show Nashville.
