Rayna Jaymes (Connie Britton, American Horror Story) is an aging country star who doesn’t pull in that many concert visitor’s anymore.
Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere, Heroes) is a fast-rising pop star whose concerts are sold out for months.
The record label thinks it’s a good idea to group these two together to pull in the other’s audience.
But both also have family problems. Rayna with her father who seems to solve every problem with money and plans to have her husband running for mayor when the current one doesn’t agree to one of his business plans.
The other with her origins, i.e. her drug-using mother who’s always looking for money for her next shot.
Drama in itself is usually not my cup of tea but every year I have such a show in my bag. And since Gossip Girl is on the finish line I needed a new one.
This one seems to deliver the right mixture of drama, betrayal and intrigue and I also like the music.
What I left out of the description above is that there’s a third story about a writing couple but that is because I don’t really find it interesting so far. But that’s OK, Rayna’s and Juliette’s story carry the weight.
