This is definitely NOT music to our ears!

ABC shocked fans at the end of the 2015-2016 season when it announced that it was cancelling Nashville after four years on the air.

Luckily, the Hayden Panettiere and Connie Britton musical drama was given a second life thanks to CMT and Hulu… but things aren't as harmonious with the cast as we originally believed.

Lead actors Will Chase and Aubrey Peeples already quit the show in preparation for the big move, but now we're hearing that Rayna herself may only appear in about half of the upcoming fifth season!

Apparently, Connie has only signed on for ten episodes of the 22-episode order, although production is reportedly hoping they can convince her to stay on full-time.

But it's not all bad news — CMT also announced on Wednesday that you can expect Nashville to premiere on Thursday, January 5, 2017, at 9 p.m. EST, which means only 4.5 months to go before we get to indulge in more country craziness!

Would U watch a season of Nashville without Connie Britton??
