And that’s just what happened this evening on Nashville.
Our gal Rayna Jaymes is no more and actress Connie Britton, who’s played the leading role for 5 seasons had loads to say about it.
In an Instagram post, Britton left fans teary-eyed as she said “Thank you” to Nashville’s “reigning queen of country.”
“Thank you Rayna Jaymes. For your magic and your dignity. And thank you to all the creators of Rayna Jaymes, for there were many. Callie Khouri, who gave her life. Deacon, Maddie, Daphne, who shaped her as her family. Teddy, Tandy, Lamar too. Juliette, Scarlett, Bucky and the ones who crafted her into a business woman. Along with countless other compatriots and combatants. And then of course the crew of Nashville who brought her to life, every crew member in every department who made Rayna live each week.”
In an interview published just after the death aired, Britton openly discussed her decision to leave the CMT show, which originally aired on the ABC before the networked canceled it early last year.
