Known for portraying the uber tough Tami Taylor on "Friday Night Lights" and her brain-eating ways on "American Horror Story," Connie Britton has entered a new realm entirely: singing.

Britton couldn't help feeling anxious about her role.as a fading country superstar Rayna James on ABC's new show "Nashville" this fall.

"It's been hard," Britton told New York magazine of singing on the series. "I've been working with T Bone Burnett for months. I'm the remedial student in our cast of singers -- everyone else has great voices, and I'm the one who only did it back in drama school. We'll spend days just sitting around listening to the music Rayna would have grown up with.

I started singing this Bonnie Raitt song with my vocal coach the other, and I literally burst into tears because I'll never sound as good as Bonnie Raitt."

"Nashville" revolves around the world of country music in Nashville, »
