Hayden Panettiere‘s character on the ABC drama Nashville was rumored to have been based on Taylor Swift at one point, but Hayden has told Taylor herself that’s not true. It turns out Hayden and Taylor are neighbors, which allowed them to have that conversation in person according to Zap2It.com.

When Hayden told Taylor the character wasn’t based on her, Taylor told her, “I know, Hayden. I saw the pilot. It’s amazing.”

Taylor goes on to say, “I think she did an incredible job of being sinister and adorable at the same time, and we had a hilarious conversation about it.”

Nashville premieres on ABC Wednesday, October 10. Taylor’s new album, Red, comes out October 22. She previews the new song “Begin Again” from that album on ABC’s Good Morning America Monday.
