RAYNA AGREES TO FILM A CHRISTMAS SPECIAL AT HOME, BUT HER MAGAZINE COVER STORY PUTS A CHILL ON RELATIONSHIPS
Connie Britton and Will Chase Duet for "Baby It's Cold Outside"
"Two Sides to Every Story" -- Rayna continues to pull out all stops in self-promotion, this time by agreeing to do a televised Christmas special from her home, for charity, with Luke and the children. When Rayna invites Deacon to join the filming, things get awkward fast - her magazine cover story has reverberations for her personal life. Meantime, it's Nashville's Winterfest, and Zoey, Gunnar and Avery have an opportunity to perform. With Scarlett's coaching, Terry (Mykelti Williamson) sings for the crowd and blows them away but cannot handle the limelight. Will and Layla go to Winterfest and each find solace but separately on WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 3 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET) on the ABC Television Network.
In this episode Connie Britton and Will Chase (Rayna and Luke) perform the holiday classic, "Baby It's Cold Outside," and the real-life single, along with the "Christmas in Nashville" album of songs performed by the cast, is available at the ABC Music Lounge: http://abc.go.com/music-lounge.
