Earlier this week, we told you there were rumours that “Nashville” was announcing it’s return at the CMT Music Awards. It may not have happened exactly like that, but CMT did confirm today that they are bringing “Nashville” to their lineup for a full 22 episode season 5. “CMT heard the fans. The wave of love and appreciation they have unleashed for ‘Nashville’ has been overwhelming,” said Brian Philips, president of CMT. “‘Nashville’ is a perfect addition to our evolving line-up of big music specials, documentaries and original series. We see our fans and ourselves in this show, and we will treasure it like no other network. ‘Nashville’ belongs on CMT.”
One of the shows stars Charles Esten, who will be at BVJ this summer, got to break the good news to fans at CMA Fest!
