Nashville Series Premiere Full Episode: Watch It Online Here

One of the better pilots among this season's offering of new series is Nashville, ABC's drama about a country music singer and the up-and-coming singer who may rise up to take her place. The premiere episode won't air until next Wednesday night, but those who want to see it sooner than that can watch the series premiere right here.

Nashville stars Connie Britton (Friday Night Lights) as Rayna Jaymes, a country music legend who may have reached the top of her career, but hasn't stopped working hard in her efforts to stay on top. Hayden Panettiere (Heroes) plays Juliette Barnes, the hot new artist who knows she's hot and isn't about to let anyone stand in her way of reaching the top. Beyond the music is plenty of character drama as we get to know these two women and the people in their lives. Watch the full pilot episode below. (It comes via Hulu, so there may be region issues for those outside the U.S.).

What did you think? Nashville landed high on my list of favorite pilots this season, so I'm really hoping that the strong pilot is an indication of good things to come as this series gets going. It's great to see Britton back in another starring role so soon after American Horror Story, and I'm eager to see where Rayna Jaymes' story goes from here.

Nashville will make its official premiere Wednesday, October 10 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.
