Nashville’s first season ended with a car crash and a proposal, and while we’ve paid a great deal of attention to how said accident will affect Rayna Jaymes (Connie Britton) — who will be in a coma in the season opener — and her boyfriend Deacon Claybourne (Charles Esten), we practically forgot about Gunnar Scott’s (Sam Palladio) sudden proposal to Scarlett O’Connor (Clare Bowen).

Luckily, showrunner Dee Johnson tells TVLine that viewers will know Scarlett's answer to Gunnar's big question “within the first few hours of the season.” Regardless of whether or not she says yes (we’d venture a guess and say these two put the marriage plans on hold at the very least) Scarlett is about to get some friendly visitors down south.

Her BFF Zoey (newcomer Chaley Rose) and TV singing competition runner-up Layla (Aubrey Peeples) head to Nashville “hoping for fame.”

Sure, Scarlett and Zoey may be besties now, but we wouldn’t be surprised if each of their quests for fame comes between them.
