The “Nashville” cast is counting down to the end.
In a new video released on Thursday by CMT, stars Hayden Panettiere, Charles Esten, Jonathan Jackson, Clare Bowen, Lennon Stella, Maisy Stella and Chris Carmack reflect on their time on the country music drama — some getting misty-eyed while discussing their experiences over the past seven seasons.
“They’re very human stories,” Panettiere says of the storylines on “Nashville”. “There’s been a love there. There’s been a lot of respect.”
“There’s a magic in ‘Nashville’ and there always has been,” Esten adds. There was a magic in the very beginning. There will be magic in the very end.”
Earlier this month, cast members took to social media to commemorate the final days of production. Panettiere shared a message to fans of “Nashville”, expressing how “grateful” she’s been for having been on the show and teasing the final episodes of the series.

in between scenes feeling the rays and reading Eckhart (everyone read “the power of now”) on my roof, having trouble wrapping my brain around this being the last few days of filming. having trouble wrapping my brain around the 6 years I’ve been on this show. man, this is going to feel strange.
“Nashville” returns for the final eight episodes of the series on Thursday, June 7 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CMT.
