ABC’s latest series, Nashville, premiered Wednesday, October 10th and one thing was pretty clear from the pilot: we’ll be dealing with two versions of Taylor Swift. There’s a super sweet blonde who essentially embodies that Taylor Swift innocence, then there’s the semi bitchy blonde who is the real Taylor Swift.
I’m kidding, but one look at Hayden Panettiere in a gold sequined dress with the most ridiculous scowl plastered on her face, and I can’t help but imagine Taylor Swift doing the exact same thing. There’s public Taylor and bitchy Taylor, and luckily for us, Nashville will be bringing us both versions for the foreseeable future.
Quick synopsis of the first episode goes something like this: Connie Britton’s character is a country legend; Hayden Panettiere’s character is the up and coming ingénue with attitude to spare. As one tries to hold on to her lackluster flame, the other will stop at nothing to achieve the type of success that will keep her away from her drug-addicted mother. I can predict nothing but lots of drama and sequins this season, but I don’t think that’s going to be a problem.
If you’re interested in watching something a bit more ridiculous than real life, chock-full of obvious love triangles and dastardly ne’er-do-wells (sorry, I’ve always wanted to use that phrase), tune in. Plus, the mom from Halloweentown has a large part in the series, making nostalgia the biggest reason to tune in. Yay, for Disney Channel Original Movies!
