An exclusive group gathered at the Belle Meade Plantation to celebrate the highly anticipated new TV show “Nashville” that premiered last night on ABC (News 2). We’ll tell you more about the food, etc. later, because what you really want to know is “Who was there?!”
We were excited (to say the least) snapping a picture with Eric Close who plays Teddy Conrad, husband to lead star Connie Britton’s character Rayna James! He was extremely friendly while greeting all the guests and we overheard him boast about how much he loved staying at the Hutton Hotel while filming the pilot.

Charles Esten (who plays Deacon Claybourne) and Clare Bowen (who plays Scarlett O’Connor) also attended the premiere party and confirmed our suspicions—this is one beautiful cast!
While we would have loved to see the show’s two female stars, Connie Britton and Haden Panettiere, News 2 made sure they were there in spirit with these very funny fans of their faces! We got to hear from the show’s producer and the stars proudly talked about what a wonderful treat we were all in for this season.
Exceptional hosts, News 2-WKRN threw a bash in true Nashville style with southern hors d’oeuvres, a wine tasting and great live music by country music artist, Rick Monroe. Guests also enjoyed some of Nashville’s local favorites such as Goo Goo Cluster and yours truly, Nashville Lifestyles Magazine.
You may, in fact, have already discovered the show truly represents Music City’s hot spots such as the Blue Bird Cafe and the Grand Old Opry—but what we really want to know is what did YOU think? Is Nashville here to stay?
