In Nashville Season 1, Episode 12, “I’ve Been Down That Road Before,” Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere) decides she is done with being the girl gyrating on stage in booty shorts. In short order, she trades in her Daisy Dukes for a breezy peasant blouse and makes a run at Rayna Jaymes (Connie Britton)’s claim to fame — as well as making bedroom eyes at Rayna’s ex boyfriend Deacon Claybourne (Charles Esten). Here’s the music from the episode, and the stories behind each of the songs:

Song: “I’m a Girl”
Written by: Mallary Hope
Performed by: Hayden Panettiere
Lyrics:
I’m a girl, I got skills, I can dance all night in five inch heels and make you feel like the luckiest boy in the world
because I’m a girl
I like my men real tall, well I kind of like ‘em all
Cause I’m a girl
I can get a free drink for flipping my hair

Song: “Consider Me”
Written by: Ashley Monroe and Brendan Benson
Performed by: Hayden Panettiere
Lyrics:
When all the bright lights have shut down
And they have closed every door in town
I’ll be around
When there is nobody else to call
And you’re surrounded by these walls
I’ll make them fall
When all the money has been spent
And you’ve thrown away every cent
I’ll take you in
When you’re drifting off to sleep
Maybe tonight in your dreams
All you’ll see is me

Song: "Emmylou"
Sung by: First Aid Kit
Scene: Teddy shows up at Rayna's doorstep.
Lyrics:
Oh the bitter winds are coming in
And I'm already missing the summer
Stockholm's cold but I've been told
I was born to endure this kind of weather
When it's you I find like a ghost in my mind
I am defeated and I gladly wear the crown

I'll be your Emmylou and I'll be your June
If you'll be my Gram and my Johnny too
No, I'm not asking much of you
Just sing little darling, sing with me

Now so much I know that things just don't grow
If you don't blessed them with your patience
And I've been there before I held up the door
For every stranger with a promise

But I'm holding back, that's the strength that I lack
Every morning keeps returning at my window
And it brings me to you and I won't just pass through
But I'm not asking for a storm

I'll be your Emmylou and I'll be your June
If you'll be my Gram and my Johnny too
No, I'm not asking much of you
Just sing little darling, sing with me

And yes I might have lied to you
You wouldn't benefit from knowing of the truth
I was frightened but I held fast
I need you now at long last
