Nashville TV show

Thursday night marks the end of an era: It's the series finale of the CMT show Nashville, which features the lives, and at times soapy scandals, of fictional country music stars.

The six seasons have also given a big boost to the city's image and some of its songwriters — because, plot aside, the show makes the city look really good.

Mayor Megan Barry has expressed interest in working with TV networks to revive ABC’s drama series, “Nashville,” and is even open to providing financial incentives. The show’s fifth season was canceled due to inconsistent viewer ratings.

"We would love for the show 'Nashville' to continue. We would be willing to work with anybody who wanted to come back to us and make a proposition and an offer to see what that looks like. Obviously, resources are not unlimited but we do love that show," Barry said.
