Nashville is about to meet the ultimate pot-stirrer.
On Thursday’s episode, titled “The Night Before (Life Goes On),” Big Little Lies star Jeffrey Nordling makes his debut on the country music drama as Brad Maitland, an egotistical and powerful Nashville record label owner who has a contentious history with his ex-wife, singer-songwriter Jessie Caine (Kaitlin Doubleday).

Season 6 of the country-music drama will consist of 16 episodes, premiering in early 2018.

Season six will consist of 16 new episodes and is set to premiere in early 2018.
Cmt became the new home of “Nashvile” last year when ABC canceled the country-music drama after the end of its fourth season. The first 11 episodes of season five averaged a 0.2 live-plus-same day Nielsen rating in the 18-49 demo and 900,000 total viewers — numbers that paled in comparison to what the series drew on broadcast, but were solid for a cable channel with limited scripted programming presence such as Cmt. In live-plus seven numbers, the first half of season five averaged 2.1 million viewers, making it the most watched show in Cmt history.
