'Nashville' Season 1, Episode 3: 'Someday You'll Call My Name' Recap

In this weeks episode, we start off at a glitsy photo shoot with Juliette Barnes. At the shoot her manager then tells her that her drug addict mother is back in town. As she is walking off the set she is surprisingly confronted by her. Juliette uncomfortably gets in the car while trying to not acknowledge her. On the other end of the spectrum, Rayna is with her family at her country mansion where her girls are struggling with what to wear for their school talent show. Deacon calls her as she is cooking -well, pouring yogurt- and she seems uncomfortable.
