It’s been over six months since we first announced Nashville was coming home to CMT, and trust us, waiting was not easy. Thursday night (Jan. 5), the two-hour premiere event confirmed what we already suspected: It was well worth the wait.
We laughed, we cried, we sang, we danced and we remembered why we love being #Nashies.
While we loved every second of the premiere, and picking favorite our moments was a nearly impossible task, we managed to put our finger on the parts that really had us jumping out of our seats.
Read our list below and let us know what your favorite moments were!
We had full body chills watching Juliette be saved by Hallie.
Oh, how we’ve missed the Deacon and Rayna banter!
Juliette and Rayna
These two ladies have had some serious highs and lows since they first met, so it’s great to see them really supporting each other again.
When Deacon responds, “I can barely breathe just looking at you,” we all melted.
#Javery is Back
They’ve still got a ways to go, but we’re so excited to see these two under one roof with baby Cadence, working on their relationship.
Ever since we heard Rayna sing “Already Gone” in the pilot episode, we knew we had to have it. Now that the song is back, we’ve got it on repeat.
Scarlett and Gunnar
What Deacon said. … It’s about time!
Now that Maddie is on good terms with her family, we finally get to see Scarlett giving Maddie the cousinly advice she so desperately needs.
Revisiting the Crash
Juliette’s breakdown at the crash site was so emotional and heartbreaking, but it really brought Juliette and Avery closer together.
Let’s be honest. It just doesn’t get any cuter than this.
Juliette and Avery’s Kiss
It’s been so long.
Maddie and Daphne’s Song
There’s nothing better than these two getting along and making beautiful music.
Juliette Finding Hallie
That kind of angelic voice is impossible to forget.
The Concept Album
It took Deacon a while to come around to the idea, but we can’t wait to hear what this record sounds like!
Will and Kevin
We’re so happy to see Will back up onstage with Kevin by his side.
He always knows what to say.
Scarlett and Gunnar’s Fight
It’s so hard to watch these two fight, but we’re glad Scarlett finally spoke her truth and they can move forward.
Juliette’s Talk With the Pastor
We think this could be a real turning point for her.
The #Scunnar Kiss
Scarlett knows how to make an entrance!
This song perfectly sums up Deacon and Rayna’s relationship and we couldn’t love it any more.
