I know we have our - disagreements - with the Nashville music scene, but ABC's Nashville is a dang good show. Drama, music, love and lust all in one place. They don't even dub the music, all the singing is being performed on set. How cool is that?

The musicians are easy on the ears -- especially Miss Clare Bowen who plays starlight Scarlett O'Connor. I heard [most] drama in the show is pretty accurate too, so it keeps us on our toes down here in Texas.

I've been containing my excitement for the Season 2 Premiere, and decided you ladies (and guys?) should join in the Countdown with me. I'll be sharing my personal favorite performances with you leading up to the show -- which airs Sept 25th!

First up is a wonderful cover of The Civil Wars 'If I Didn't Know Better' performed by Clare Bowen and Sam Palladio. I'm having a hard time deciding if I like the cover better than the original -- it's that good.
