Nashville Cancelled Connie Britton Reaction

Connie Britton Reacts to Nashville Cancellation: 'I Am Forever Changed'

Rayna Jaymes may never tour again, thanks to Nashville‘s recent cancellation, but Connie Britton wants fans to know that the ABC series’ place in her heart “is deep and permanent.”

On Thursday, ABC chose not to renew the country-music drama for a fifth season. The actress recently posted a note to her Instagram account, thanking the drama’s cast, crew and fans of the country-music drama for their support over the show’s run.

“I’d just like to say it’s been my honor to be a part of this world, to live in it and breathe it in and try to replicate it,” Britton wrote.

She also seemed to reference Nashville‘s missteps, such as the current, polarizing Maddie-emancipation storyline. “Sometimes we were more successful than others. But the place of Nashville in my heart is deep and permanent,” she wrote. “And I am forever changed for the better.”

On a related note, Lionsgate TV — which produced Nashville with ABC Studios — tweeted on Friday that it was “working hard” to find a new home for the series.You can read Britton’s message in full below:
