The Music of Nashville: Original Soundtrack, Season 2, Volume 1

Apparently, the cast of the hit ABC series Nashville doesn’t cotton to the notion that actors and actresses can’t sing. They’re busting that myth to shreds with the first soundtrack from the show’s second season. 

Connie Britton, who claims to be the weakest vocal link on the show, absolutely sizzles on the driving “Ball and Chain” with Will Chase, while her character’s nemesis, Hayden Panettiere, nails two tracks, including the sassy, tongue-in-cheek “Trouble” and a fun duet with Chris Carmack, “Can’t Say No to You.” And Jonathan Jackson’s performance of “How You Learn to Live Alone” is utterly heartbreaking, with ethereal vocals and minimal production. Of course, the project wouldn’t be complete without a couple of sweet and applaudably age-appropriate songs from Lennon & Maisy, who clearly have amazing musical futures ahead of them.

Charles Esten, Sam Palladio, Clare Bowen, Aubrey Peeples and Chaley Rose also reveal they are more than just competent singers with their contributions to the album. They are all truly gifted artists.

And a round of applause to Nashville’s songwriters, who could, arguably, make anyone sound good.
