Hayden Panettiere plays rising country star Juliette Barnes on her the new ABC drama Nashville, and she may be taking on that role in real life.  Hayden’s performance of the song “Telescope” is now the first official single to country radio from Nashville.  She’ll sing it as Juliette on Wednesday night’s show, and fans can purchase it on iTunes on Tuesday.

Nashville‘s second episode airs Wednesday night at 10 ET with Connie Britton co-starring as country star Rayna James.
