‘Nashville’ TV Show 2012 Commercial – What’s the Song?
With a name like ‘Nashville,’ ABC’s new fall drama about the country music industry in Music City is expected to have an awesome soundtrack. And a new promo leading up to the show’s debut didn’t let us down. Can you name the song — from a Tennessee-based group, of course — that’s playing in the background of the new ‘Nashville’ commercial?
If you’re a fan of the Civil Wars, you probably recognized the award-winning duo’s tune, ‘If I Didn’t Know Better,’ playing as the soundtrack to the 30-second teaser promo. And might we add that the haunting song about falling for a lover (even when you know better) looks like the perfect companion to this drama-packed new series.
In ‘Nashville,’ Connie Britton (of former ‘Friday Night Lights’ fame) portrays Rayna James, a 40-something mother who is being forced to work with Juliette Barnes, a younger up-and-coming singer played by Hayden Panettiere (who previously starred on ‘Heroes’). The tension between Jaynes and Barnes is not just music-related, though. ‘Nashville’ will show viewers the complexities of how women compete, especially in show business.
Following a big sweep at the Grammys in early 2012, the country-tinged and endlessly popular Civil Wars are on a short break while singer Joy Williams takes time to bond with her new baby, who was born in June 2012.
‘Nashville’ premieres on ABC on Oct. 10 at 10PM ET.
