It was only a matter of time until reality TV came knocking in Tennessee. Nashville is one of the hottest towns in the country, a haven for young attractive artists with dreams of stardom and hope of finding love. There’s drama and a celebrity on every corner. So why wouldn’t the creators of “The Hills” and “Laguna Beach” create a reality show focused on a group of young artists waiting tables while trying to break into the music industry? It almost writes itself.

“The Hills” and “Laguna Beach” blurred the lines between scripted and reality TV. The show was shot with compelling cinematography that looked more like a primetime drama than the loose hand-held camera work of other shows and the story always seemed to work out perfectly. It was pseudo-reality: the reality you dream about.

That idea works perfectly in Nashville where every 20-something is full of hope and dreaming of finding love and being the next big thing in country music.

“Music City” will air January 2018 on CMT.
