Everyone's favorite mutant cheerleader Hayden Panettiere is back with her first TV role since Heroes crashed and burned 2 years ago. This time around it's a country & western themed musical show in the same vein as Glee, called Nashville. And apparently Hayden is really living the life of a up and coming teen country sensation, what with her little western-themed spread here in the pages of Women's Health this month. Hayden is adorable and no doubt lots of folks over at ABC are counting on that to give their show a boost. But how many folks are really clamoring for another musical show? Hasn't Glee pretty much worn that particular genre down to the nub? Or are they expecting to court the millions of unrepresented country fans who also want a chance to see their favorite songs mutilated every week to the visual delights of a choreographed dance spectacular? I don't see the redneck crowd really jumping at this en mass, but at least Hayden will look great in it.
