There’s a lot of great things about TV’s Nashville: the music, the drama, the romance! And then there’s the celebrity cameos that make the series even better. With 4 seasons under its belt – and a new season in the works with the CMT network – several celebrities have joined the cast over the years. Some celebrities have come on board to play themselves, while others have taken on roles as ficitionalized characters. With so many cameos to choose from, we’ve picked out some of our favorites throughout the seasons. We can’t wait to see what next season has in store!
10. Derek Hough
Professional dancer Derek Hough made several appearances throughout season 3 and 4 of Nashville playing Juliette Barnes’ (Hayden Panettiere) handsome co-star Noah West in the Patsy Cline biography Shenandoah Girl. West made it known to Juliette that he had a thing for her, and promised to keep her pregnancy secret safe. In season 4, Barnes’ relationship with Avery fell apart due to postpartum depression. Trying to move on with her life, she runs into Noah at the Academy Awards and the two start a fling. Even though we’re all hoping Juliette and Avery (Johnathan Jackson) will rekindle their relationship next season, we admit that we couldn’t help but enjoy the romantic tension between Juliette and the handsome Noah. As a result from working on the show, the two have become good friends. Hough has been a supportive friend to Panettiere as she seeks treatment for postpartum depression, reportedly writing her letters to let her know he’s thinking of her.
