Hayden Panettiere's 'Nashville' character is not based on Carrie Underwood, but...

Hayden Panettiere has said that her Nashville character, Juliette Barnes, is inspired by Carrie Underwood, but in the February issue of Allure, Underwood says she’s nothing like the troubled character.

“I’m not like that at all,” Underwood declares. In fact, says the singer, life inside Nashville’s country music community is far less scandalous than the way it’s portrayed on the ABC series. “It’s juicy, but I hope not everybody thinks that everything goes down like that in Nashville, and we’re evil.

When DeSanto dressed Connie Britton’s character Rayna Jaymes and Hayden Panittere’s Juliette Barnes for a scene at the famed Ryman Theater, she went for the gold with sexy dresses that were also age-appropriate. “Speaking to their characters, I wanted to make sure that there was a generational difference,” DeSanto said. What’s the trick to wearing metallics in your 20’s, 30’s and 40’s?  READ FULL STORY
