ABC's Nashville is no stranger to famous guest stars! Real-life country musicians Kip Moore, Kate York, Dan Auerbach, and Vince Gill popped up to say "hey y’all" at Deacon's (Charles Esten) birthday party, and it was a rollicking good time. But the time has come to kick things up a notch with some household names and legit storylines. Check out five country music legends we'd love to see take Nashville by storm!
Our plan for Taylor is simple yet beautiful — much Deacon Claybourne. Taylor would play herself, immediately fall in love with Avery (Jonathan Jackson), buy a house across the street from him, tattoo "I Hate Gunnar" on her forehead, and then end up sad and alone a boat that mysteriously docks in Nashville — which is tough, since it’s a landlocked city (this girl can do anything, trust). Also, Taylor would obviously partake in a sing-off with Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere). And yes, she'd lose.
Brad is married to Kimberly Williams-Paisley (Peggy Samper) in real life, so it's only a matter of time before he shows up on Nashville and steals his wife back from Teddy's (Eric Close) evil clutches. Because if there's one thing Nashville needs more of, it's love triangles. And if there's another thing Nashville needs more of, it's for Teddy to be emotionally destroyed as punishment for divorcing Rayna.
Connie Britton and Sheryl Crow are gal pals in real life, so it shouldn't be too hard to convince Sheryl to make an appearance on Nashville. The possibilities are endless, but we'd love her to play Jason Scott's (RIP) former girlfriend, who spirals into a fit of rage when she hears that her man was killed thanks to Gunnar (Sam Palladio). With any luck, Sheryl will destroy Gunnar's sanity by getting "Soak Up The Sun" stuck in his head until he's forced to book himself into an asylum.
Word on the street is that Rayna Jaymes' (Connie Britton) character was modeled after Faith Hill, and there's no denying that these two are pretty similar. They're both in their 40s, they're both amazing songstresses, and they both have ridiculously gorgeous hair. Oh, and they both maybe dated Deacon Claybourne. Yep, we're thinking Faith should show up as Deacon's ex-girlfriend from rehab, win him over with her inexplicable love for Old Yeller, and rekindle the spark! Can you even imagine how jealous Rayna would be? So many sad fedoras, so little time.
Here's our plan: Keith and his low-lights wander over to Music City and become brosefs with Deacon. After weeks of bonding and cuddling, they realize they have matching birthmarks on their upper inner thighs! Naturally, they chop off said birthmarks and send them to a lab for analysis, only to discover that they're fraternal twins who were separated at birth. They decide to switch places to freak out their parents, and the rest is history. And also this is totally different from The Parent Trap, so don't even.
