Music from TV drama Nashville will be broadcast live from the show's set during its first episode when it returns later this year (14). The series, starring Hayden Panettiere and Connie Britton, follows the lives of fictional country music stars and regularly features concert performances. In a treat for fans, the music components of the upcoming season three premiere will be broadcast live from the set as the show is shot. Creator Callie Khouri tells Radio Times, "We want people to know what it's really like. The live music here is such a huge presence in our show that we thought maybe we could find a way to share with the world what that feels like for real. "It's a huge thing to take on, but I think we're up to it. Barring some technical, possibly weather-related problem, I think it's a fun thing to try and do. We're always looking for new ways to challenge ourselves and just thought this would be really great." Nashville will return to U.S. screens in the autumn (14).
