[via press release from ABC]

ABC'S MUSIC LOUNGE IS LIVE WITH A NEW INSTALLMENT OF "NASHVILLE"-INSPIRED DOCU-WEB SERIES, "ON THE RECORD," FEATURING THE ORIGINAL SONG "UNDERMINE" PERFORMED BY HAYDEN PANETTIERE AND CHARLES ESTEN

Renowned Singer Songwriter Elvis Costello's Original Song, "Twist of Barbwire," Is Now Available for Download!

The second installment of ABC Music Lounge's "Nashville"-inspired docu-web series, "On the Record," is live at www.abc.com/musiclounge with the new original song "Undermine," written by Trent Dabbs and Kacey Musgraves and performed by show stars Hayden Panettiere as Juliette Barnes and Charles Esten as Deacon Claybourne. The song is a passion project for Panettiere's character and appears multiple times in this week's episode of "Nashville," which airs WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 17 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

With interviews from Panettiere, Esten, Grammy Award-winning T Bone Burnett (executive music producer), Callie Khouri (creator/executive producer), R.J. Cutler (director/executive producer) and the songwriters, "On the Record" will uncover how "Undermine" was written, what it means for the characters, and how it took on a new life in the editing room. There will also be an exclusive acoustic performance of the song by Dabbs and Musgraves.

"This is by far one of my favorite songs, if not my favorite," said Panettiere. "It's the first time you really see her (Juliette) talent and the heart behind her."

"'Undermine' is another that's just gorgeous," said Esten. "You hear it and at first you're blown away, and then you think, 'oh man, I hope can live up to this song.'"

"Undermine," along with Elvis Costello's "Twist of Barbwire," performed by Jonathan Jackson as Avery, and "Telescope," written by Hillary Lindsey and Cary Barlowe, performed by Hayden Panettiere as Juliette, are now available for download on iTunes and http://abc.go.com/music-lounge/. "If I Didn't Know Better," written by John Paul White and Arum Rae, has quickly raced up the iTunes charts, breaking the top 5 on the Country Chart, after it was featured in last week's premiere of "Nashville." T Bone Burnett serves as executive music producer for the series. All original music is released by ABC Studios and ABC Music Lounge in association with Big Machine Records.

"On the Record" is a documentary web series that follows the life of original songs performed on "Nashville" written by singer/songwriters in the music scene, from the songs' inception to on-air premiere. The series offers an intimate look into the songwriting process, from guitar demo to music video and all the steps in between.

"Nashville" stars Connie Britton as Rayna Jaymes, Hayden Panettiere as Juliette Barnes, Clare Bowen as Scarlett O'Connor, Eric Close as Teddy Conrad, Charles Esten as Deacon Claybourne, Jonathan Jackson as Avery Barkley, Sam Palladio as Gunnar Scott, Robert Ray Wisdom as Coleman Carlisle and Powers Boothe as Lamar Wyatt.

"Nashville" is executive produced by Dee Johnson, R.J. Cutler, Callie Khouri, who is also creator, and Steve Buchanan. The series is produced by Lionsgate, ABC Studios and Gaylord Entertainment.
