Press/Videos: ‘Today’ show comes to ‘Nashville’

On a segment of Wednesday morning’s (Dec. 7) Today show, Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb packed up their interview cards (and their wine glasses) and hightailed it down south to shadow our Nashville cast as they shot an episode for the upcoming fifth season.

The charming co-hosts started their day with another unstoppable duo, Lennon & Maisy, the real-life sisters who play Maddie and Daphne Conrad on the series.

The group met on the set of the Bluebird Café, where they convinced the sisters to play a little something in honor of the location. Lennon & Maisy threw it back to Nashville‘s first season by covering The Lumineers’ “Ho Hey,” a Conrad sisters classic.

Making their way around the gorgeous Nashville sets, Kathie Lee and Hoda met up with the show’s leading man Charles Esten, who plays Rayna Jaymes’ husband Deacon Claybourne. Dishing on his on-screen wife, Esten told the pair that he was a fan of Britton before he ever met her.

The Office vet also pointed out that while his character Deacon is fairly reserved, when you “put him behind a guitar he will tell you anything.”

The co-anchors then moved into Rayna’s living room for a sit-down with the other half of “Deyna,” Britton. Unlike many of her cast mates, singing was not at the top of the Friday Night Lights alum’s resume, but she loves a challenge. And I think we can all agree, she crushes it!

The hilarious duo ended their rounds on the set of Scarlett and Gunnar’s old house with Clare Bowen and Sam Palladio, whose characters make up the band called The Exes on the show. The group talked strategy for the scene they were filming later that day, where the band would make an appearance on Today.

“By the 20th take, Scarlett won’t seem so weird,” Bowen jokingly promised.

Keep an eye out for Gifford and Kotb’s cameo on the new season of Nashville, which premieres on Thursday, Jan. 5 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Press: New Season of Nashville Coming to Thursdays in January on CMT

It’s the news #Nashies have been waiting for!

The fifth season of Nashville will kick off with a two-hour premiere on Thursday, Jan. 5 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Nashville is set against the backdrop of the city’s music scene and follows Rayna Jaymes and Juliette Barnes. Both women face personal and professional challenges as they navigate their paths as artists and individuals. Surrounding them and often complicating their lives are their family, friends and, in some cases, lovers, as well as the up-and-coming performers and songwriters trying to get ahead in the business. Music City can mean so many things to different people.

In Nashville, musicians and songwriters are at the heart of the storm driven by their own ambitions. Some are fueled by their creativity and passion for fame. Others struggle to cope with the pressures of success and are doing everything in their power to stay on top.

Press: Nashville Creator Teases Season 5 Premiere Date on CMT

Christmas may be coming early for Nashville fans.

Series creator Callie Khouri allegedly announced at tonight’s Grant Ole Opry concert, which counted Nashville star Charles Esten among its headliners, that the ex-ABC drama would launch its fifth season on CMT and Hulu this December.

“Great news #Nashville fans! Creater @CallieKhouri announced on the @opry w/ @CharlesEsten 2nite that #Nashville will b back in DECEMBER! 🎉🙌”

“.@CharlesEsten just brought some news about #NashvilleCMT… It will return to @CMT and @hulu this December!”

When reached for comment, a CMT spokesperson, however, maintained to TVLine that a Season 5 premiere date had not been set.

CMT announced in early June that it had officially ordered a 22-episode fifth season of the Connie Britton-Hayden Panettiere musical soap in the wake of the show’s surprising cancellation at ABC. As part of the deal, Hulu will stream each episode the day after it airs on the cable network.

With the exception of Will Chase and Aubrey Peeples, who played Luke and Layla, respectively, the entire cast — including Britton and Panettiere — will be back for Season 5. Thirtysomething‘s Marshall Herskovitz and Ed Zwick, meanwhile, have replaced Dee Johnson as showrunner.

Press: ‘Nashville’ Season 5 Air Date, Spoilers, Cast Shows Off Their Talents, Reminds Everyone of the Strength of the Canceled ABC Show Coming to CMT

It has been quite a tumultuous past few months for the cast and crew of ABC’s “Nashville,” the show that was shockingly canceled by its network back in May, only to be picked up by CMT in June. Not everyone is on board for the move, however, as Will Chase, who plays Rayna Jaymes’ love interest Luke Wheeler, and Aubrey Peeples (who plays Layla Grant), were both let go before the show moved to CMT.

Back in May, Lionsgate TV chairman Kevin Beggs spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about how they pushed for the cliffhanger ending of Season 4, saying that the ending that ultimately hit the airwaves was the one they were rooting for in the beginning, despite filming a happier ending. He added that they would not have pushed for such a cliffhanger ending if they had known that there was no chance at all for “Nashville” season 5 to hit the airwaves.

“In our estimation, to go with a quickly assembled too-easy wrap-up is more of a disservice to the fans who have invested four years in this great cast and these great stories. And there’s more stories to tell,” Beggs promised. Whatever stories that may be, it seems that production, which is now headed by new showrunners Marshall Herskovitz and Ed Zwick, is keeping tight-lipped about what is to unfold in “Nashville” season 5.

What’s for sure, however, is that CMT has ordered 22 episodes for “Nashville” season 5, which will see the return of series regulars Connie Britton, Hayden Panettiere, Charles Esten, Sam Palladio, Jonathan Jackson, Clare Bowen, Lennon Stella, Maisy Stella, and Chris Carmack.

Meanwhile, the cast of “Nashville” season 5 recently made an appearance in the live-streaming web series, “Skyville Live.” In fact, the cast reminded audiences of the strength of their bond through a glorious performance of The Beatles’ classic, “With a Little Help from My Friends,” a seemingly appropriate song following the tumultuous events of the past months. Head over to Rolling Stone to watch the performance.

“Nashville” season 5 is set to make its debut on CMT this fall.
