Television Premiere Travel: Nashville Hits The Honky-Tonks
Coming this fall: Jaunted gets the dirt on your favorite shows and the cities where they take place. Put down your remote and pick up your keyboard, because after tuning in to these series premieres, we'll have all the dish.
When we first heard about FOX's new show Nashville we thought, "Finally, someone is taking Robert Altman's classic to the small screen!" Well, not exactly. But they both share a setting Fox is calling "the biggest small town in America" and a penchant for country music.
The new "Nashville," which premieres this Friday at 9PM (and is already online), is a high-gloss reality show in the style of MTV's "Laguna Beach," following singers and music-industry cogs in the home of the Grand Old Opry, where we bet at least one of the hopefuls will be spotted over the course of the season.
Where else do these would-be Johnny Cashes and Dolly Partons hang out? Well, at least one of them, singer hopeful Rachel Bradshaw (daughter of Terry), is attending Belmont University and is probably exploring the nightlife there. Since another "character" wrote the country-music hit "Honky-Tonk Badonkadonk," we'll probably see him in one of Nashville's joints like Tootsie's Orchid Lounge or Robert's Western World getting inspiration for his next big hit. No holing up in the studio for these glamorous country-popsters.
