In a bid to get more people caught up on Nashville, CMT will be airing a marathon of the Golden Globe nominated drama on Sunday, January 6th. Beginning at 2:00 p.m. and extending through 8:00 p.m., viewers can relive the beginnings of the Juliette/Rayna rivalry, Teddy’s run for office, and the Avery/Scarlet/Gunnar love triangle, as well as experience each song born out of frustration, lust, or a begrudging creative collaboration. The show recently released a soundtrack album, which climbed into the top 20 on the Billboard 200 and includes the songs that have been featured thus far.
