Nashville First Look: Steve Kazee's Farmer Riff Arrives in Music City

Welcome to Nashville, Riff.

Broadway star Steve Kazee makes his debut on the ABC country-music drama this March, and TVLine has an exclusive first glimpse of the Tony winner in his first episode.

As previously reported, Kazee’s character is a former country superstar who abandoned the music business when he fell in love with a woman who was an aspiring singer/songwriter herself. Now, he’s a family man and farmer.

Kazee will recur in the second half of Season 4, which resumes Wednesday, March 16 at 10/9c.

As you can see in the photo, Riff and Luke seem friendly — might the mogul be thinking about rebuilding his oft-mentioned brand by luring former star Riff to Wheelin’ Dealin’ Records?
