connie britton nashville interviewLast week’s long-awaited romantic ‘collision’ between star-crossed lovers Rayna and Deacon on Nashville was not nearly as intimate an experience off screen as it was on.

The actress also offers an ‘exclusive’ (and hilarious) update on the long-gestating Friday Night Lights feature film.
