We're back now with Nashville star Hayden pen tierre. She bravely revealed her battle with postpartum depression. The response from so many moms has been overwhelming positive. All comes as her own character on narcville is struggling with the same issues. We're so happy that you're here today. Thank you for coming back. Thank you for bringing Nashville back. Thank you, guys, bringing it back. I'm sorry it's not on ABC anymore. A new home on CMT. So seldom that you get a second chance in this industry let alone having your fans bringing you back. Thank you guys for employing us again. And you have so many fans. You personally, you have been so amazingly open about your struggle with postpartum. I went through it. I didn't know -- I thought I was overwhelming tired. You if figured it out and you have shared that with so many women. It does take you a while. How did you know? I mean the same way you did, it takes a while and you feel off you don't feel like yourself. But, you know, women are so resilient and that's the incredible thing about them. And I think I'm all the stronger for it. I think I'm a better mom for it because you never take that connection for grant zbld correct. And she's now 2 years old. 2. Unbelievable. Congratulations. Time does fly. She's skying now. She's skiing. Forget the pizza pie. She would go straight into a wall if you let her. There she is. But, how are you doing now? Two years out, how are you feeling. I'm feeling fabulous. I'm feeling great. I'm so glad being back, playing Juliette. She made me stronger. I feel like she's like a Phoenix. She crashes and burns and then she rises from the ashes and she's always takes the lesson and becomes stronger for it. We have that in common, I think. What was it like, life imitating art or vice versa, going through postpartum depression something as you went through in real life, did that help you? Was that part of sharing with women? Yeah, it absolutely helped me. I think it helped me identify what was going on. And to let women know that it's okay to ask for help and have a moment of weakness and it doesn't make you a bad person or a bad mother. That's a great message. A strong, resilient woman. Make it stronger. Yes, men. Don't take us for granted. I love it. What can we expect from Nashville now that you moved to CMT? Are we going to get a different feel? Can you fill us in on Juliette and the gang? Obviously, I'm alive. Shocking. I didn't even know. There was a plane crash. There was a plane crash. She's not in a great place when we first see her but, I tell you, the resiliency. She's going to go down a road or a path you would never expect. Open a door that you would never, ever expect. That's what we call a great tease. I think you'll love it. Thank you for being so honest and for coming back on Nashville. Hayden, everybody. Nashville tonight on CMT.
