11 Essential Songs From Nashville

at .

Some of the best songs from Seasons 1 and 2 of ABC's Nashville.

1. Connie Britton & Charles Esten - This Time

Rayna and Deacon have been billed as a legendary songwriting duo, but their latest collaboration may be their best yet from a fan's perspective. "This Time" they've delivered a truly infectious tune.

2. Hayden Panettiere ft. Jonathan Jackson - Trouble Is

Featuring Avery (who's been bringing the house down all season no matter who he's with), and epitomizing Juliette's rough-around-the-edges nature, "Trouble Is" would make Miranda Lambert proud.

3. Chris Carmack - What If I Was Willing

Chris Carmack gets a lot of credit, not just for taking on a role of closeted gay singer Will Lexington and portraying him with surprising depth, but for holding his own as a country singer. If you heard this on the radio, you'd download it!

4. Clare Bowen and Sam Palladio - When The Right One Comes Along

Perhaps the single greatest example of the chemistry that made Scarlett and Gunnar so electric to watch. But are they they right one for one another?

5. Connie Britton & Will Chase - Ball & Chain

Rayna and Luke are both heavyweights, and this track also marked the culmination of Gunnar's songwriting storyline, so "Ball & Chain" had to be an absolute killer. It was.

6. Connie Britton & Hayden Panettiere - Wrong Song

Like "Ball & Chain," "Wrong Song" had to be a smash for the show to have any musical credibility. It was. The show's initial run of episodes all culminated in this Rayna-Juliet duet, and they delivered.

7. Hayden Panettiere - I'm a Girl

A Juliette Barnes hit before Juliette Barnes got a whole lot more complicated, "I'm a Girl" is pop country at its finest.

8. Lennon & Maisy Stella - Ho Hey

Lennon and Maisy Stella's surprise cover of The Lumineers' hit song shows vocal stylings far beyond their years.

9. Clare Bowen - Lookin' For a Place to Shine

Long defined as part of a duo with Gunnar, at the Opry, Scarlett proved she can hold her own solo and then some.

10. Clare Bowen and Sam Palladio - I Will Fall

An underrated Scarlett-Gunnar collaboration, if there is such a thing.

11. Hayden Panettiere ft. Charles Esten - Undermine

Determined to be taken seriously as an artist and human being, Juliette enlisted none other than Deacon's songwriting services. "Undermine" was the result.

If I had a suspicious nature, I'd think there was more to it than that. Oh wait. I do have a suspicious nature.


You couldn't wait for me. And you didn't.
