Nashville Sneak Peek: Is the End of Rayna's Beloved Highway 65 at Hand?

It took Nashville‘s Rayna Jaymes years to build her dream record label, Highway 65… and, from the look of this exclusive sneak peek at Thursday’s episode (CMT, 9/8c), just a few months (and some bad decisions) to drive it nearly all the way into the ground.

Maddie and Deacon are quite somber in the clip from “Farther On,” and though we’re not 100 percent sure what’s happened earlier in the episode, it’s clear that H65’s troubles have only gotten worse since last week. It sounds like that’s because of something Maddie did, which, OF COURSE. But the ever-reassuring Deke promises his daughter that she won’t be the formerly bratty straw that breaks the label’s back: “If this happens, it will not be your fault.”

Elsewhere in the episode, per the official synopsis: “Juliette shoots a mascara commercial, but takes issue with the direction. Deacon gets invited to play the Opry, but hesitates. Avery and Gunnar embrace life on the road.”

Press PLAY on the video above to watch the touching kitchen moment — Deacon and Mads have been having a few of those lately, right? — then hit the comments: Are you worried that Rayna’s Highway 65 is going to go the way of the dinosaur? And what are your hopes/fears for next week’s season finale?

    I am going off this show! I’ve loved it since the very first episode but the second half of this season has been terrible. It’s becoming too predictable and blah. I’m giving it until the end of this season, which I think is soon?, to change it around or I won’t be watching it anymore.

    I stopped watching right before Rayna died-
    The writing is terrible-
    Connie knew to get off that sinking ship–
    Cancel it already

    Love the direction the show is taking and the development of new and existing characters. Maddie stands out. A transitional year for the show and I look forward to every episode.

    I can’t stand Maddie. She is a brat!

    I’ve given up on the show too – what have they done to Juliette & Avery they are barely featured and when they are the writing is lazy and predictable- as if the writers are going through the motions and don’t want to write for them.
    Feel very sorry for the actors who portray them (and Will) especially as Hayden Panettiere is advertised as the lead when she very clearly is not .

    I have been looking for ward to seeing how things play out each week, and I can’t wait to see where the next week brings! I love how the show has kept growing with each change it has made.
