Welcome to Nashville, princess.
Jessy Schram, AKA Once Upon a Time‘s “Ella,” makes her first appearance on the country-music drama on Dec. 9. Too bad it seems like she’s arriving in Music City just as some major trouble is about to hit.
But let’s do the good news first: As previously reported, Schram’s recurring character, Cash Gray, is the daughter of Deacon’s business partner/former Alcoholics Anonymous sponsor — which is probably why Deke looks so happy to see her in the photos below. Cash is a singer-songwriter who’s garnered some recent buzz and who’s newly reacquainted with her dried-out dad.
OK, here’s the not-so-great news (which I’ll quote directly from the episode’s official synopsis): “Living in the same house, but feeling farther apart than ever, Rayna and Deacon face a big decision.”
Also in the pics, Markus takes to the stage in support of his new album launch — though per the hour’s description, he’s nowhere near ready when Good Morning America comes to Nashville to broadcast his live concert.
But back to that Rayna/Deacon thing: Are we worried, Nashville fans? And are we looking forward to meeting Cash? Click through the gallery below, then hit the comments!
