Laura Benanti to Challenge Rayna on Nashville Season 3

by at . Comments

We hope you're practicing your scales, Rayna.

Because the singing stakes have just been raised for Nashville Season 3.

According to Deadline, Laura Benanti has been cast in a recurring role on the ABC drama. The actress will come on board as Sadie Stone, an up-and-coming country artist who initially bonds with Connie Britton’s Rayna... only to grow into a rival (we assume.)

Benanti’s TV resume includes roles on Go On, Nurse Jackie, Law & Order: SVU and Royal Pains.

Nashville, meanwhile, returns with new episodes on Wednesday, September 24 and you can always visit our Nashville music section to download the best songs and covers from the series.

Emily: Correction, a designer tent.

Teddy: So you and I, we're good?
Jeff: Well I am, yeah, but I'm not an elected official. Loose lips sink ships, buddy. And not only does Rayna know why you got blackmailed, but so does everyone else Henry Benton shares it with. Nicely played Mr. Mayor.
