On Replay

The fall television season brought me three new shows to get addicted to: Revolution, Arrow and Nashville. However, only one brought music along with it.... 

Nashville. It's such an addictive show and the music blends in so well with each episode. During the fall season before the mini break over the holidays, each episode was filled with new plot lines and usually a new song or two each episode. It's country music but with a little pop twist to it on some tracks. Each week after the episode would air, I would find myself singing or humming the songs so I took to itunes to see if they had posted any of the songs from the show. To my surprise they had and I downloaded Undermine. Needless to say, I played it all the time. 

Then a few weeks ago, I heard that NBC was releasing the Nashville Soundtrack. 
Um... heck yes! So on Tuesday when it released I drove over to Target and got their special edition with the bonus tracks and couldn't wait to get out of the parking lot before I tore it open and popped it into the car stereo. Since then it's been playing over and over. I even turned off my Christmas music for a few days to play the cd. The soundtrack has got every song that's been sang so far in the season. Now before you ask, yes Hayden Panettiere and Connie Britton are actually the ones doing the singing. As are all the people on the show who are featured singing.

My favorite tracks on the album and from the show have been: Undermine, Wrong Song and Telescope. Did I mention I'm not even a big fan of country music? Yep, I'm really not but there's something about this show and the singing that's so good! If you've never watched the show then you really need to catch up and tune in! The show also makes me really want to visit Nashville since I haven't been there since I was a teenager. 

If you've seen the show and love the music then download the songs or go get the album. I know that Target is the only place to have the bonus track albums so hurry before they sale out during the holiday season.

I haven't checked out this show yet. I'm so behind since I stated watching Gossip Girl from the beginning. Maybe I'll check it out this summer when all the shows are off until next season.

I've been planning on buying this, but wanted to make sure no one bought it for me as a holiday present. And now that I know Target has bonus tracks I know exactly where I'll be buying my copy.

I love this show, too. The music is great and the hour goes way too fast. My favorite is when Gunnar and Scarlett sing together!

I love Nashville and couldn't wait to get the CD. Hubby got it for my for Christmas. I can't wait for the show to return in January. It makes me want to visit Nashville even more now!

We also love Revolution (although Charlie's acting can be a bit annoying) and just got into Arrow.
