Since Rayna is unsure about her future as a singer, she plots to buy out Edgehill's rights to her music, and Gunnar and Avery decide to record new songs with Zoey, Scarlett's best friend. However, by the end of the concert night, nothing will be the same, on "Nashville," WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 23 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
