Just why is country upstart Juliette Barnes so darn right nasty? She got it from her mama! Our pals at Zap2it caught up with Juliette's portrayer Hayden Panettiere, who revealed a little about what makes the Nashville vixen tick.
"You have to respect her to a certain degree," Panettiere says, "even though she is a little b*** at some times. She is running from a very dark past."
ABC’s Nashville is one of the most anticipated new dramas of the 2012 season. Now you can watch the pilot before it premieres on Oct. 10. Nashville stars Friday Night Light’s Connie Britton, former Guiding Light and One Life to Live star Hayden Panettiere and General Hospital favorite Jonathan Jackson.
Britton’s Rayna Jaymes is the Queen of Country, but the label is worried her reign is coming to an end, so they're sending her on tour with upstart, crossover artist Juliette Barnes (Panettiere). Watch the Nashville pilot and tell us what you think. Did you love it or hate it? Check it out after the jump!
