A ruthless and wealthy politician, Lamar Wyatt is the puppet master pulling the strings in Nashville. Rayna, his famous country singer daughter, may want nothing to do with him, but his other daughter, Tandy, is content to work as his right-hand woman and stands to inherit his entire fortune and business empire. Perhaps as a move to draw Rayna closer, Lamar convinces her husband, Teddy, to run for mayor of Nashville, promising him an easy win. The question is, what will Lamar want in return?
