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.

Nashville Quotes

Gunnar: You can't keep fighting it, Scarlett. Everything that just happened on that stage, the energy, the connection, you and me. It's all still there. I felt it, and I know you felt it too.
Scarlett: Well, as somebody once said to me, all I felt was music.

I wanted to thank you. You changed my life that night at the bluebird. And if I'm gonna lose someone, I'm glad it's not you.
