It always seems a little strange to me to see someone whose name I'm already aware of heading to a television show to compete. It's not that it's a bad thing and I don't fault them for trying whatever it takes to make it, it just seems an unusual way to go once you've already had some success in Nashville. 

This week two singers that I've previously covered here on NashvilleGab are giving two different competitions a whirl.

‘Nashville’, Season 2, Episode 21 – RECAP

Nashville-Season-2-Episode-21-Recap-and-Review-All-Or-Nothing-With-Me

With the Nashville season 2 finale airing tomorrow night, and fans in high spirits after the renewal announcement (with a full 22 episodes!), it’s about time we muse on this rather sweet penultimate episode that aired last week.

Rayna begins the episode by having a conference meeting with radio promoters, as her album release is coming up. She’s cut short, however, when Bucky informs her that when out on a tour of Afghanistan to perform for the troops, Luke has been injured and rushed back home to the hospital. Rayna flies to New York City to see him, and luckily he’s not seriously injured, although the make-up people did a pretty good job of making his face look weirdly cut and swollen. You made Luke a creepy invalid, well done guys! He’s gutted that he never got to perform for the troops, so Rayna suggests they go to Fort Campbell just outside of Nashville and they can all perform. Following a few arguments where he’s been pissy, she asks him why he’s pushing her away, and he admits that when the bomb went off, all he thought about was her and his kids, and he loves her far more than he believes she loves him. However, Rayna tells him she’s all in, but to complete the episode she performs ‘A Life That’s Good’ with her daughters, with Maddie persuading her to invite Deacon out as well.
