Top Ten Tuesday #75


Hi all! I had a very busy week with the start of uni last week and it’s not looking to slow down this week as all of the clubs start back up at uni. I get the feeling that this year is going to be a very busy year already! Anyway I’m back with another Top Ten Tuesday from the lovely ladies over at The Broke and The Bookish, this week’s topic is an audio related freebie, so for my topic, I’ve decided to share my favourite songs from one of my favourite TV shows, Nashville (so happy that it got renewed for a new season on CMT!). The show may have a propensity towards the dramatic yes and some of the storylines can be a little out there….but the music has always been incredible. So here are some of my favourite songs from the show (and I recommend you check them out on ITunes/Youtube!) These are as always in no particular order:

  1. Casino-Clare Bowen and Sam Palladio

Get ready for a lot of these two on this list because their voices sound so beautiful together. The tune and lyrics of this song are just so lovely and it’s one of my favourites from the show.

2. Shotgun-Christina Aguilera

I wasn’t a big fan of Christina Aguilera’s arc on this show, I honestly don’t even really get why she was there, but the best thing to come out of it was this song. It’s such a beautiful song and I’m very sad that we can’t get it on ITunes.

3. Black Roses-Clare Bowen

This song…’s one of the most beautiful and haunting songs from the show, the lyrics are incredible and Clare Bowen’s voice is lovely.

4. History of My Heart-Jonathan Jackson

This song is gorgeous, even if you’ve never had a relationship (like me), something about this song touches you, the lyrics are lovely and I think it’s probably Jonathan Jackson’s best song from the show.

5. Is That Who I Am-Chris Carmack

This is without a doubt my favourite Chris Carmack song from the show as it’s one of the few where his character is truly vulnerable and the lyrics are just so beautiful.

6. Blind-Aubrey Peeples

I’ve never been the biggest fan of Aubrey Peeples character on the show, but I was so happy in Season 3 when she got to sing more because she has such an incredible voice. The lyrics of this song are amazing, but Aubrey Peeples’ voice is even better.

7. Don’t Put Dirt On My Grave Just Yet-Hayden Panettiere

This is the ultimate angry song, whenever you’re angry or need motivation (like when running, it’s a very good running song), this is the perfect song for it. Plus it’s the perfect song for the character, if anyone asked me to describe Juliette Barnes in a song, it would be this one. And Hayden Panettiere slays!

8. Everything I’ll Ever Need-Jonathan Jackson and Hayden Panettiere

This is just such a cute song and their voices blend so well together.

9. A Life That’s Good-Various Cast Members

This is such a lovely, uplifting song and in the midst of all the drama of Nashville, it’s great to have a song like this!

10. Nothing In This World Will Ever Break My Heart Again-Hayden Panettiere

This is such a beautiful song and Hayden Panettiere performs it so well!

11. I Ain’t Leaving Without Your Love-Chaley Rose, Jonathan Jackson and Sam Palladio

This is such a fun song (great to run to) and the actors voices are so good together!

12. It Ain’t Yours To Throw Away-Sam Palladio and Clare Bowen

Told you these two would be on the list more than once! This is such a lovely song lyrically and again, Sam and Clare’s voices are so lovely together.

13. Believing-Lennon Stella and Charles Esten

This is such a lovely and sweet song and it’s sung so beautifully as well (and fits so nicely with the characters’ storyline at the time).

14. Can’t Help My Heart-Laura Benanti and Will Chase

This is just such a gorgeous song, lyrically it’s one of my favourites from the show because the lyrics are so beautiful and moving, plus it’s sung so well.

15. Change Your Mind-Sam Palladio and Clare Bowen

As with all the songs by this duo, it’s a lovely song, but I listened to this song a lot last year (for reasons) and felt like I could relate to it well.

16. Can’t Say No To You-Chris Carmack and Hayden Panettiere

This is such a catchy tune, not to mention Chris and Hayden’s voices go so well together, I can’t believe this is the only duet the two of them have had so far. The writers need to change this in Season 5!F

17. Disappear-Hayden Panettiere

This song is such a raw, beautiful song, the lyrics are lovely and Hayden Panettiere’s voice is so beautiful.

18. Every Time I Fall In Love-Scarlett Bowen

This song really appeals to the hopeless romantic in me! Plus it’s just such a lovely song!

19. If Your Heart Can Handle It-Aubrey Peeples and Chris Carmack

One of the few good things to come out of the Layla/Will storyline, this song is beautiful!

20. How You Learn To Live Alone-Jonathan Jackson

This song is sad, but at the same time, really beautiful.

21. Fade Into You-Clare Bowen and Sam Palladio

This is a quintessential Scarlett/Gunnar song and it’s so beautiful!

22. Undermine-Hayden Panettiere and Charles Esten

This is a lovely song and their voices are so nice together! This is the only duet the two of them have, I hope they have more in the future.

23. The Rivers Between Us-Connie Britton and Charles Esten

I am not the biggest fan of Connie Britton’s voice, but I do love this song with her and Charles Esten, even more than the classic Reyna/Deacon duet, No One Will Ever Love You.

24. Love Like Mine-Hayden Panettiere

This is just such a fun song and it’s excellent to run to.

25. When The Right One Comes Along-Clare Bowen and Sam Palladio

This another lovely song that appeals to my inner romantic.

26. I Know How To Love You Now-Charles Esten

This is one of my favourite Charles Esten songs from the show because the lyrics are so poignant to the particular moment in Reyna and Deacon’s relationship for the song, plus it’s one of Charles Esten’s own songs (which he co-wrote with Deana Carter) which I think is really cool.

That’s all for this week, I know I went way over ten, but Nashville has so many great songs and I found it really hard to narrow down! Plus with such a large list, I have at least one song from each season. Any other Nashville fans out there? What are your favourite songs from the show? What did you guys choose for your audio related freebie this week? Let me know in the comments! Next week’s topic is Books on My Fall TBR List, but in the meantime, I should have a new Wishlist Wednesday post up tomorrow and my latest Quarterly Rewind later in the week!

    I’m going to have to listen to the Christina song! I haven’t heard it before.
    My TTT.

    • iloveheartlandx 21/09/2016 / 10:01 pm

      Oh it’s great you definitely should! I will check out your TTT.

  2. Kourtni @ Kourtni Reads 22/09/2016 / 1:18 pm

    I love Christina Aguilera’s voice so I’ll have to check out that song as I’ve never heard it before. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by my TTT!

  3. Birdie 22/09/2016 / 4:23 pm

    Man, you picked some great ones. How You Learn To Live Alone is my favorite Avery song. It’s so haunting and beautiful. Who I Am, by Will, another of the ones that really breaks my heart. (Especially with the meaning on the show!) I actually really like Luke’s ‘If I Drink the Beer’ too. It’s another of my favorites.

    I’m going to be so sad on the last episode of this show!

    • iloveheartlandx 22/09/2016 / 4:27 pm

      Thanks! Yeah, I think it’s mine too, it’s such a gorgeous song. Oh I know, it’s so sad. I like that one too, but I had to cut down somewhere! Me too, it’s such a great show.

  4. priyankaswonderland 22/09/2016 / 5:13 pm

    Wow nice list! I have bookmarked your page so that I’ll have the list and check out the songs. But your list has gotten me more interested in Nashville! LOL.

      Thanks! You should check Nashville out, it’s a great show 🙂 No problem.

  5. Louise 22/09/2016 / 6:02 pm

    I’ve not seen Nashville, but I’ve got friends who adore it. I’ll have to listen to some of these songs.

  6. kellyfbarr 22/09/2016 / 8:20 pm

    I’ve never seen nor heard of Nashville or any of these songs, but I am a sucker for romance, so I will return here to this list so I can look up some of the songs on youtube to hear. I also want to check out the song that you said is motivational, especially when you’re angry just because that intrigues me. Pat Benatar’s always been my go to when I’m angry.

    • iloveheartlandx 22/09/2016 / 8:53 pm

      That’s great, there are some great songs on here! Yes, Don’t Put Dirt is an awesome song, you’ll understand what I mean about it being motivational when you hear it. I have only heard a couple of Pat Benatar’s songs, but I can understand what you mean from the ones I’ve heard.

  7. adventureswithabooknerd 22/09/2016 / 8:28 pm

    I’ve never seen Nashville before, but I’ve heard amazing things about it. So I’ll have to give it a try if I find the time. 🙂

    • iloveheartlandx 22/09/2016 / 8:54 pm

      You definitely should, it’s a great show with awesome music.

  8. Beth (Reading Every Night) 22/09/2016 / 10:52 pm

    I haven’t seen Nashville so I haven’t listened to any of these songs but I’ve heard great things about the TV show so I may have to check it, and these songs, out soon! 😀
    Great picks for this week!

    • iloveheartlandx 23/09/2016 / 12:32 am

      You definitely should, the show and the music are both great. Thanks 🙂

  9. Esther @ Chapter Adventures 23/09/2016 / 1:54 am

    WAIT. Laura Benanti and Will Chase were on Nashville!? I have to watch that show, I love those two. Also, I’ve been meaning to watch it for the longest time because I thought Hayden was fantastic in it. I have to check the songs AND the show now 🙂

    • iloveheartlandx 23/09/2016 / 5:33 pm

      Yes they were! Oh you should it’s a great show. Yes, Hayden is incredible, imo, she’s the best part of the show. You definitely should 🙂

  10. Jess (@NeverlandReader) 23/09/2016 / 3:52 am

    So many good songs. I really like Hayden Panettiere, too. Thank you for stopping by. 🙂

    • iloveheartlandx 23/09/2016 / 5:32 pm

      Yes she is awesome! She does have a pretty cool style 🙂

  11. Annemieke 23/09/2016 / 8:35 am

    Such a long list of songs. I’ll have to look into some of them. 🙂

    • iloveheartlandx 23/09/2016 / 5:28 pm

      Yeah I got a little carried away! You definitely should 🙂

  12. Lauren @ Always Me 23/09/2016 / 2:19 pm

    I haven’t watched this show – but I’ll have to look up some of these songs! 🙂

    • iloveheartlandx 23/09/2016 / 5:24 pm

      Oh you should it’s great! Hope you enjoy the music 🙂

  13. Rissi 24/09/2016 / 1:19 am

    I bought one of the soundtracks for this show, but none of these titles sound familiar. It could be because none of these were on my soundtrack, or more likely, it’s been THAT long since I listened to said soundtrack. 🙂 Thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland, JJ!

    • iloveheartlandx 25/09/2016 / 7:12 pm

      You should definitely check some of these out, they’re great! No problem 🙂

  14. ChrissiReads 24/09/2016 / 9:08 am

    Lovely selection of songs! I’m going to have to check some unknown ones out.
