It’s time for a swan song. Nashville’s music guru T Bone Burnett will not return for the country music show’s second season.
The hit series is saying goodbye to Burnett, who served as executive music producer for the ABC drama, The Hollywood Reporter reports. Burnett, husband of Nashville creator Callie Khouri, administered over 100 original jams and produced dozens of hit recordings for the show, which stars Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere. The music extrodinaire also directed the musical component by scoring the 21-episode-long first season of Nashville.
Buddy Miller, who worked under Burnett on the show, will step up to take on the role Burnett’s leaving behind. Burnett’s manager Tells THR, “[Burnett’s] slate of other film, television and recording projects would have made it impossible for him to return for a second season.”
But you won’t have to go too long without hearing a Burnett-scored soundtrack. The melodic music talent is getting amped up for the Coen brothers’ Inside Llewyn Davis, which stars Oscar Issac as Davis alongside Carey Mulligan and Justin Timberlake.
