We've spotted Rayna, and she smiling! Does this mean we can assume Deacon pulled through surgery just fine? After all, we don't think Rayna would be out and about – let alone smiling in the lime light – if the love of her life had just died on the operating table. Come on, just tell us Deacon is alive already!
Looks who else has decided to join the party! Gunnar was last seen almost making out with Scarlett on the roof of the hospital, but now he's rubbing shoulders with all our other favorites back stage. We sometimes forget how tight Luke and Gunnar are (as songwriter and performer), but we can just imagine how star-struck he'll be meeting a legend like Steven Tyler.
It looks like it's all smiles on Luke's little bandwagon of stars, and why shouldn't it be? Juliette's career is on the mend, Luke's got himself a brand new famous artist on his label, and Steven Tyler is in the house! If you ask us, that makes for one really awesome night at the rodeo!
We all know that Luke is considered "old country" in terms of how long he's been in the business, so we're pretty sure he's the one who hooked Juliette up with her super star duet partner. These two look mighty chummy! Looks like we'll also get to see some of Steven Tyler's acting abilities!
The last we saw of Luke Wheeler, he was flying away from Nashville with Juliette Barnes in tow. We wonder how Rayna will feel about him stealing her most popular artist out from under her? Though he's back stage at Juliette's performance in this photo, we hope we see him rocking out on stage soon!
Aerosmith legend, Steven Tyler, will appear as himself in the premiere of Nashville, and Juliette isn't the only one he'll be rubbing shoulders with. She will, however, be the one he shares the stage with, in a duet of Patsy Cline's "Crazy" as promotion for Juliette's movie no doubt!
Though she looks breathtaking and happier than ever, we wonder if Juliette might be regretting her decision to bail on Avery and Cadence to pursue her career again. Fame and money can't buy happiness after all, and if her manic behavior last season was any indication, Juliette might not be as composed as she wants people to believe.
With her Patsy-Cline bio movie finally released, and her new album backed by Luke Wheeler, it doesn't look like Juliette's career can soar any higher. Until she performs on stage with Steven Tyler that is. There's a reason Juliette looks like she's on cloud nine in all of these photos!
