Nashville: Where He Leads Me

Rayna needs to take a look at what's really important to her after hearing Teddy's side of the story about Peggy; Juliette feels a sense of belonging with Sean's family that she has never experienced before; Gunnar risks his partnership with Scarlett when he confesses his feelings; and music producer Dominic Wells invites Avery to Atlanta to work together while Deacon gets an amazing offer to tour -- but both opportunities come with a price.

Marshall agrees to release Rayna’s next new album. Liam is now welcome into the brand. Teddy is still a bit off and wants to talk to Rayna at home. He tells her about the pictures with Peggy.
