Wednesday (Oct. 7) night’s Nashville was so thoroughly depressing. Which is great news for the episodes to come.
Because out of the very worst times will come some of the very best songs.
So Avery and Juliette’s divorce? You just know he’ll write some kind of achy, tortured soul of a ballad about that which he will sing at the Bluebird and then get a record deal out of it.
And Deacon’s sister Bev losing her life because of saving his? I mean, that’s country gold. It could be like Tim McGraw’s “Live Like You Were Dying,” but the other way around. Plus, just think of all the different ways he could use “liver” in the song?
If — and this is a very big hypothetical if — Luke decides to bed Juliette after all, that’s definitely going to lead to one of those sexy, temptations-of-the-road songs.
Then there’s Teddy. Good ol’ honest-to-a-fault Teddy. He’s in prison for crimes that he actually did commit, and he’s come right out and said so to Rayna and his daughters Maddie and Daphne. Teddy may not serve a lot of time, but if Rayna releases a song about her ex going to jail, you know it will hit the top of the charts before he’s released on parole.
