(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of
the spotlight.)

If Rayna James was a country singer instead of just a character on a show about country singers,
I would have all her albums. I’d probably have a T-shirt with her face on it. Hell, I might even be the president of her fan
club. Because I love her music and, just as important, her seasoned-vet status as a singer. She has been around, so to speak.
So I loved hearing more about what
Connie Britton thinks about playing James on Nashville
. In this month’s issue of More magazine, she said,
“The idea of putting on all those sequins and walking out onstage and rebooting my singing voice — that seemed exciting.
There’s something really great, once you hit 40, about taking on something that genuinely, fully flexes new and different
muscles. Because, man, is it scary.” Even Reba McEntire told the magazine
what she thinks of this character from the popular TV show. “She shows strength in all the battles a woman in her position
has to face,” she said of Britton’s portrayal of James.
