Is the Better Part Over
While Juliette enjoys the attention following her rooftop performance, her team worries she is suffering from postpartum depression; Will learns his private life is about to be splashed across a tabloid; Deacon and Rayna grapple with his diagnosis.
Rayna James has had a successful country-music career, but lately her popularity has started to fade. Her record label believes the solution is to have her open for up-and-comer Juliette Barnes on tour, but Juliette is a schemer and wants nothing more than to steal Rayna's spotlight. Rayna thinks her real chance is in another young woman, undiscovered songwriter Scarlett O'Connor. While Rayna struggles with her career, her father is busy messing with her private life, encouraging her husband to run for election to be mayor of Nashville -- against her wishes.
