ABC's early sampling of Nashville joins Last Resort as pilots receiving the early promotion and comes after the CW offered early streams for Emily Owens, M.D., and NBC did the same with comedies including The New Normal.
Nashville, which features music produced by T Bone Burnett,premieres Wednesday at 10 p.m. on ABC. Watch the pilot, below, or go to ABC.com, Hulu and iTunes.
