'Nashville' Season 3 Premieres Tonight, Features 3 Live Performances


The third-season premiere of Nashville will be highlighted by three live performances within the episode—each performed twice—once for east coast and once for west coast. Real-life superstar duo Florida Georgia Line will perform one of their songs, Chris Carmack (Will Lexington) will sing "If It's Love," written by the Striking Matches, and Charles Esten (Deacon Claybourne) will sing a song he co-wrote with Deanna Carter, "I Know How to Love You Now," on the Season Premiere of Nashville, Wednesday, September 24 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.

In the episode, titled "That's Me Without You," a torn Rayna must choose not just between two men, but two directions that her life could take. Juliette, struggling to repair her relationship with Avery, auditions for the leading role of a film biopic. Meanwhile, Scarlett, determined to start fresh, embarks on a road trip home and bonds with an unexpected stowaway, and Will and Layla manage the fallout from his on-camera confession.
