'Nashville' Canceled By ABC After Four Seasons

Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere‘s musical drama series Nashville has been canceled by ABC after four seasons.

The show is one of the few that wasn’t renewed by ABC in its big spree of renewals back in March and it’s surprising that it was canceled as the show does well in the ratings thanks to a DVR boost.

Nashville was set to hit its 100th episode in season five, but unfortunately the final episode will air on May 25. The show also starred Clare Bowen, Chris Carmack, Will Chase, Charles Esten, Jonathan Jackson, Sam Palladio, Aubrey Peeples, Lennon Stella, and Maisy Stella.

Nashville's Clare Bowen: Engaged to Brandon Robert Young!

Clare Bowen has confirmed that she is engaged to longtime boyfriend Brandon Robert Young!

The 31-year-old Nashville actress was performing at the Grand Ole Opry on Saturday night (December 5) when Brandon popped the question.

This weekend was Clare‘s first time performing live at the venue since she chopped off her hair. She has been sporting the short new ‘do on the recent episodes of her hit ABC series.

Nashville's Clare Bowen Chops Off All Her Hair, Writes Eloquent Explanation Why

Nashville star Clare Bowen, who plays Scarlett on the show, has chopped off all her hair.

The actress wrote an eloquent Facebook post explaining why she did so.

“When I was four years old…I had just been diagnosed with end stage nephroblastoma, after several visits to a GP who denied anything was wrong and dubbed my parents “paranoid.” I’d overheard the doctors telling my family that the only hope of saving me, was an experimental treatment that might kill me anyway. But without it I had maybe two weeks left. The hospital was cold. I’d never felt air conditioning before,” Clare wrote.

“And then I got really lucky. I survived, my hair grew back and I got strong again. I look relatively normal on the outside, but on the inside, I am still the same stitched back together little creature, in a world where people are judged so harshly for the way they look. It has always been completely incomprehensible to me. How can people think there’s time for that?,” Clare added.

“Every scar tells a story, every baldhead, every dark circle, every prosthetic limb, and every reflection in a mirror that you might not recognize anymore. Look deeper than skin, hair, nails, and lips. You are who you are in your bones. That is where you have the potential to shine the brightest from. It is where your true beautiful self lives,” Clare continued. :Thank you ABC network and particularly our creator, Callie Khouri for letting me change Scarlett’s hair, and my team, family and friends for helping me make the decision. If it makes even one person think twice about judging another, then in some small way, the world is better.”
