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:
- 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…..it’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!
