If you haven't seen the show Nashville yet tonight is your chance. It's coming back after a 3 week break so it's the perfect time to jump in.  The only thing you've really missed is the amazing musical performances.

Nashville is a good show and encorporates music into the story better than any show I've ever seen (I'm looking at you Glee).  The orginal music, which is ample, was written and produced by the one and only T-Bone Burnett so right off the bat we are starting at grammy/oscar winning status.  They also have amazing covers like this one of The Civil Wars "If I didn't know better"

The songs aren't just used for a random music break... they are incorporated into the story and the story is incorporated in the songs so seamlessly it gives the world within Nashville an organic authentic quality you feel at home in... something no other Primetime drama I've seen can match.  Nashville has a little bit of everything, Great Country, a bit of rock, some political intrigue, relationship drama, Great acting (especially from the greatest named actor ever Powers Boothe, playing the menacing multimillionare power behind the throne type), and some pretty solid comedy as well.  You throw all that against the wall and you wouldn't think it would stick but Nashville pulls it off with panache.

I'm not saying it's the greatest show on Television, but it's the only show I have on my ipod.  Nashville airs Wednesdays at 9pm on ABC. check it out.
