Relationship status: Married to Teddy Conrad
Rayna Jaymes is the reigning “Queen of Country,” but her grasp on the throne is tenuous at best. After 20 years of churning out hits with her guitarist, Deacon Claybourne — a man who also happens to be her former lover — and prancing around the stage in cowboy boots, Rayna’s star finally seems to be starting to fade. In addition to troubles at work, the 40-year-old country singer must navigate a strained marriage with Teddy Conrad, raise two children, and survive a joint tour with the sexy, young Juliette Barnes, an up-and-coming star who is desperate to take Rayna’s spot at the top of the charts.
