[ # ] Connie Britton’s message for Nashville fans after yesterday’s sad episode
February 24th, 2017 under CMT


Fans of Nashville were shocked yesterday as they watched Rayna James die after what seemed like a survivable car accident. The tear-filled episode ended with James’ daughters and husband crying over her as she passed away. Leaving viewers to do the same.

After it concluded on CMT, Connie Britton took to Instagram with this heartfelt message for them.

Thank you Rayna Jaymes. For your magic and your dignity. And thank you to all the creators of Rayna Jaymes, for there were many. Callie Khouri, who gave her life. Deacon, Maddie, Daphne, who shaped her as her family. Teddy, Tandy, Lamar too. Juliette, Scarlett, Bucky and the ones who crafted her into a business woman. Along with countless other compatriots and combatants. And then of course the crew of “Nashville” who brought her to life, every crew member in every department who made Rayna live each week.

And then there’s the music. T Bone, Buddy, Tim, Frankie and all the brilliant songwriters who gave Rayna a voice. There was no music, and no Rayna, without you.

But finally and most importantly, the fans. You made Rayna. You supported her and loved her and gave her inspiration just as she was able to inspire you. You were the energy source, the power behind her heart and soul and life. Rayna lived for you.

And, from the depths of my heart, I thank you, for her and for me. It has been an honor to be a part of that creation. And as I know she would want it, the show must, and will go on. Long live Rayna Jaymes. #RIPRayna #NashvilleCMT

Even though her death was shocking, I don’t think it was a surprise. Even though the actress signed on to do the music drama when it moved from ABC to CMT, she said she was only going to do a handful of episodes. I was kind of hoping she was going to follow the tech billionaire to the West Coast and make occasional appearances. Yesterday’s episode put the final nail in her coffin literally and she won’t be back on the show.

Are you going to miss her?
