Tandy explains to Rayna that Maddie wants to be like her mother and now all she is hearing from her mother is “no”.

Juliette wants to go for the meeting along with Dante. Dante refuses at first, but Juliette convinces him. Juliette attends the meeting and presents herself very well. Later, Juliette tells her mother that she sealed a multi-million dollar deal with the phone company and her face is going to be on 45 billboards. Jolene doesn’t look too excited. Juliette apologizes that she took Dante with her. Jolene tells her that the only thing she cares about is money. She says that money is not the reason why she came with her.

She leaves to attend an AA meeting.

Avery is really going through a tough time and he has started singing on the streets. JT arrives to meet him. JT tells him that he is going back to his father because there is nothing else left for him in Nashville. JT advises that Avery too should go back.

He says that if she doesn’t listen to him, he would tell Teddy about it. Peggy is left with no option. Scarlet tells Gunnar that she is not going to sign the contract. She says that he is the one who encouraged her to write songs and become a singer and she doesn’t want to do this without him. Gunnar tells her that he was not mad at her because she got the contract. He was pissed because she hid it from him, thinking that he would be jealous and hurt.
