Peeples, who plays reality-show-runner-up-turned-country-singer-songwriter Layla Grant, joined the ABC drama in Season 2. She’ll next be seen as Jem in the big-screen, live-action adaptation of Jem and the Holograms.

The actress’ Nashville promotion comes as Layla tests the waters as a Highway 65 artist and figures out her relationship with manager/kinda boyfriend Jeff (played by Oliver Hudson, whose status with the show has changed from series regular to recurring).
