  • There is plenty to like about the first season of ABC's prime-time drama Nashville. Executive producer Callie Khouri's take on the city's intense, competitive, thriving music and political scenes makes for saucy television. The centerpiece, of course, is music. Actors Connie Britton (Rayna James), Hayden Panettiere (Juliette Barnes), Charles Esten (Deacon Clayborne), Clare Bowen (Scarlett O'Connor), Sam Palladino (Gunnar), and others actually perform the songs in the series backed by a host of ace studio players. T-Bone Burnett is Nashville's music producer. He enlisted some of Music City's finest songwriters and the help of longtime friend Buddy Miller to co-produce (and perform on) most of the songs here. The end result is a collection that provides a compelling argument that contemporary country music doesn't need to divorce itself from its history; it also makes a solid case for the radio accessibility of Americana and alt-country. Most of the music here -- Britton's elegant "Buried Under," her duet with Panettiere on "Wrong Song," and Panettiere's duet with Esten on "Undermine" use contemporary country tropes, without sacrificing soul for production sheen. In other words, it's both the singer and the song that hook a listener. Burnett and Miller don't compress the hell out of everything to make it sound bigger. Virtually all of these instruments (especially drums and percussion) sound warm and natural, and serve to accent and support the vocals rather than overwhelm them. Panettiere's "Love Like Mine," and her performance on the radio mix of "Telescope" would likely chart if they were released as singles. Americana numbers such as the Civil Wars' "If I Didn't Know Better," performed by Palladino and Bowen, scored big on YouTube and prompted numerous Twitter conversations. So too the rootsy, original version of "Telescope," performed by Lennon & Maisy Stella (aged nine and twelve, who play Britton's daughters on the series), with only an acoustic guitar for accompaniment. "Twist of Barbwire," performed by Jonathan Jackson (Avery), is a tom-tom and whammy bar-driven rocker with just enough twang to make it walk between rockabilly and alt country. It probably doesn't hurt that it was written by Elvis Costello. Esten's "Sideshow" is a lovely ballad that walks dead center between Americana and contemporary country. Usually, soundtracks for television shows are a mixed bag at best. The Music of Nashville is a very notable exception. ~ Thom Jurek
