Someone else from Orange County is packing their bags and headin' down to Nashville!
Summer Roberts will soon reunite with old pal Luke Ward as Rachel Bilson joins the cast of Nashville when the show returns in June. The show isn’t revealing anything about the new character just yet but Rachel gave some hints on Instagram, snapping a picture of Highway 65. Who knew Rachel Bilson could sing?!
This could mean either Rachel plays a new artist signed to the late Rayna James' record label, or perhaps she's taking over for Bucky—who knows! We are so excited to have Rachel on the show and can't wait to see what kind of drama she tangles herself into. I for one hope something sparks between her and Gunnar. You can't deny they'd make a beautiful couple.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, showrunner Marshall Herskovitz says, "We fondly anticipate the second half of the season filled with surprising twists and turns that make Nashville so beloved by the fans.”
