JULIETTE'S TOUR IS IN A TAILSPIN, AND THOUGH SCARLETT AND GUNNAR'S CAREERS ARE HOT, THEIR PERSONAL LIVES ARE NOT

ZAC BROWN DUETS WITH SCARLETT AND JAY DEMARCUS OF RASCAL FLATTS COLLABORATES WITH GUNNAR IN AN ALL-NEW "NASHVILLE" JANUARY 22

"Just For What I Am" - Scarlett's career is on fire as she sings "Free" in concert with Zac Brown (guest-starring as himself), but the demands of fame are burning her out. Rayna asks Deacon to help write a much-needed hit for her new album, and it's like old times--perhaps too much.
