Did you catch the latest episode of Nashville? Looks like Avery and Scarlett are sorta kinda back together—and Avery's got a gig as injured Deacon's guitar player.

In real life, Avery, aka Jonathan Jackson, has scored himself a record deal, Billboard reports.

Yes, Jonathan has been acting for years, and even had a regular role on General Hospital. But Jonathan has also been fronting an alt-rock band, Enation, for more than 10 years.

So the deal with Loud & Proud Records really isn't that big a shocker to those who have been following his career.

“The last decade, really, I’ve had an amazing time just working really hard developing a sound and continuing to write songs and play everything,” Jonathan tells Billboard. “So I’m really grateful for the time that we’ve been doing things independently, but at the same time it feels great to have this happen.”

No word on when an album might be coming out—or if Scarlett will be singing with him.
