'Nashville' star Charles Esten on T Bone Burnett's exit: 'I don't mind anybody fighting over excellence'

Last week, iconic music producer T-Bone Burnett had choice words for the execs over at ABC when he explained his abrupt exit as Nashville‘s music supervisor after just one season to The Hollywood Reporter.

“I have no problem working with Callie,” Burnett said of his wife, Nashville creator and executive producer Callie Khouri. “I have a problem when people don’t treat Callie right. I like to see artists treated with tremendous respect, and I like the executives to say, ‘How can I help you do what you do?’ That’s what I do.”

He continued, “Some people were making a drama about real musicians’ lives, and some were making a soap opera, so there was that confusion. It was a knockdown, bloody, drag-out fight, every episode. You remember that show The Prisoner? If I were to tell you the truth, you’d think I was insane.” Yikes. Tell us how you really feel, T-Bone.

Well, EW caught up with Nashville star Charles “Chip” Esten (a.k.a. Deacon Clayborn) on the red carpet of the BMI Music Awards last week in Nashville, and though the actor didn’t deny the behind-the-scenes tension, he said he was proud to be part of a show for which people like Burnett care enough to argue.

'Nashville': 10 things you can expect in season 2

Tonight, Nashville returns with a second season premiere (10 p.m. ET on ABC) that has a lot of cliffhangers to resolve. We asked exec producer Dee Johnson and Hayden Panettiere to tease what lies head. Here are 10 things you can expect in season 2:

1. Rayna (Connie Britton) and Deacon (Charles Esten) will survive that car crash. No surprise there. But what it does, Johnson says, is “change everything from the point of view of our two star-crossed lover anchor characters. It definitely sets them on totally different trajectories.” After picking up shortly after the crash, there’s a bit of a time jump that will allow Deacon to be back on the wagon. “For any addict, it’s always gonna be an issue. But that is the biggest wake-up call of anyone’s life, so I don’t think it’s a spoiler to say he’s not gonna be stumbling around drunk,” she says. “He has a whole bunch of new information in his life [about Rayna’s daughter Maddie being his], and I think the struggle for him is to look at where he is, why he is, and how he’s supposed to either embrace or reject the role of father.” Rayna will eventually butt heads with the new president of Edgehill (Oliver Hudson). “Having been bought out by a massive conglomerate, it has a very different and new perspective in terms of how it handles its artists. And Oliver’s character, Jeff Fordham, instantly butts head with Rayna in a kind of love/mostly hate relationship.” Will they have sparks? “They’re certainly gonna have a lot of fireworks between them, and whether or not anything ever romantic comes to pass remains to be seen.” 

'Nashville' sneak peek: Rayna's life is in peril -- EXCLUSIVE


That’s what we got when we watched the exclusive sneak peek below from next Wednesday’s season 2 premiere of Nashville.

In the video, we pick up right after last season’s terrible car wreck and see Deacon use his many, many muscles to drag an unconscious Rayna out of the car, all the while whispering sweet pleas for her to “wake up.” (Sob!)  And if that’s not enough of a heart-squeezing moment, we cut to the hospital, where we see Rayna in very rough shape to say the least… READ FULL STORY

'Nashville' deleted scene: Rayna and Teddy in happier times -- VIDEO

Nashville‘s first season hits DVD on Sept. 17, which gives you plenty of time to marathon it before the drama returns to ABC on Sept. 25. View a deleted scene below, and watch Rayna (Connie Britton) take an extraordinarily long time to make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

Speaking to EW for our Fall TV preview issue on stands Friday, Nashville exec producer Dee Johnson offered a couple of teases for the formerly happy couple of Rayna and Teddy (Eric Close) in season 2: She will — surprise! — survive that car crash with Deacon (Charles Esten), have a “love/mostly hate” relationship with the hot new head of her record label (played by Oliver Hudson), and perhaps get involved with a country star whose stature in the business is even bigger than hers (played by Will Chase). And Teddy, well, last we saw him, he’d just found out that Peggy (Kimberly Williams-Paisley) was pregnant.  “He’s not very happy about it,” Johnson said, laughing. “It continues to be a story point for them moving forward, and he and his whole family have to wrestle with how best to handle that.”
