We continue, now, with an emmy-nominated role on "friday night lights." Also, "spin city." That's where I met her. Connie britton is starring in one of the hottest shows of the season, "nashville," here on She plays a reigning country music queen, battling a new, young starlet trying to take her throne. And connie britton is with us. Welcome to "good morning america." Thank you. Great to be here. I want to congratulate you on motherhood and being a new mom. Your little boy's beautiful. Has it been almost a year? Not quite a year. It's been amazing. I know being a working mom. Yes. Doing it with a series, I'm sure is taking up a lot of time. It's the greatest challenge of my life. But it's the greatest challenge of my life. It's amazing. It's wonderful. Let's talk about the series, "nashville," getting a lot of buzz. Airing tonight, the premiere. Yeah. We're excited because I just think it's something that audiences haven't seen before. And the music is so great. The story telling is great. There's something in it for everybody. I hope audiences are going to love it. Were you a country music fan before? I have been. I'm more of a music fan across the board. It's fun to immerse myself into that world. And nashville, it's not just country music anymore. Who knew? That's it. It's a little "dynasty." It's drama. Rock 'n' roll. It's just a music town. But as you say, it's a family town. There's politics. You know, it's just there's so much fun stuff to get into. And in the show, we see a lot of singing. And people might be surprised that you all are doing it all yourselves. We're all singing our own music. And all the songs that we sing are by these amazing song writers. And -- but they've never been recorded before. Every song you hear is going to be something that we are singing for the first time. Maybe released? I think there might be records in the future. That is still so mind-boggling What was that like for you and hayden to get the songs and go in and record them? Well, it's incredible. We're working with steve burnett, who is the most incredible music producer on the planet. For me -- hayden has been -- she's recorded songs before. She has -- she has some pipes? That girl can sing. For me, it's been really much more -- I was much more rusty. But it's been so exciting. Let's look at a clip, everybody. Here's a little sneak peek of "nashville." Have you met. I know you. You're burning stuff up out there. Thank you. My momma was one of your biggest fans. She said she would listen to you while I was still in her belly. Bless your little heart. That's a charming story. You need to go on soon. I'm sure you want to make sure you have your girls tucked in good. We have to run. Great meeting you. You take care. Great show. Great show. You hear bless your little heart, that's a way of saying you're in trouble. I know you're a spokes penn for mds. And robin is kicking butt. I know. I've been touched by mds in my family. It's a rare but devastating disease. And for her to be a spokesperson for all the people touched by this disease is a wonderful thing. Thank you. I know she's watching. And I know we'll all be watching tonight. With you playing rayna on "nashville." It's tomorrow night? Wednesday night. I'm thinking it's wednesday. I have two kids. Wednesday. It's wednesday, everybody. SET YOUR DVRs, OR WATCH LIVE. 10:00, 9:00 central, here on abc. "Nashville." Connie britton, come back and see us soon. I will. Coming up, more stars.
