We’ve been in mourning ever since we found out Sam Palladio (Gunnar Scott) isn’t exactly looking for an IRL duet partner anymore. That’s right, folks, Gunnar may still be pursuing Scarlett O’Connor (Clare Bowen) on Nashville, but Sam is content with gorgeous co-star and girlfriend Chloe Bennet (Hailey). So, when The Boot caught up with the actor-singer at his 3rd and Lindsley show and asked who he thought was the hottest woman in Nashville, he had a coy answer.

Who did he say? His gorgeous girlfriend? His beautiful and super-talented co-star Clare? Connie Britton (Rayna Jaymes)? Hayden Panettiere (Juliette Barnes)? Taylor Swift? "I'm not gonna comment, maybe she'll be here tonight." Hmm, well, that doesn’t clear up any questions for us...

Let’s break it down. Although Taylor Swift would have been a random addition to the audience, we probs would have heard if she’d been there. Connie would have been our pick, and several cast and crew members were in attendance, but she wasn’t confirmed to be among them. Hayden was in South Florida, meeting up with her ex during the February 16 concert. So, who does that leave?

But, both Chloe and Clare were photographed at the show — Clare making a guest appearance on stage, and Chloe tucked under Sam’s arm after his set. Curiouser and curiouser... who do you think Sam Palladio was talking about?
