ABC Music Lounge's "Nashville"-inspired docu-web series, "On the Record," is live at www.abc.com/musiclounge with the new original song, "Wrong Song," written by songwriters Sonya Isaacs, Jimmy Yeary and Marv Green and performed by Connie Britton (Rayna Jaymes) and Hayden Panettiere (Juliette Barnes).
With interviews from Isaacs, Yeary, Green and Britton, as well as CALLIE KHOURI (creator/executive producer), Dawn Soler (SVP of Music, ABC Studios) and Frankie Pine (music supervisor), "On the Record" explores the many meanings behind "Wrong Song" and its importance to Rayna and Juliette's relationship. In the show, the song is the first written and performed by the women. It's performed at the historic Ryman Auditorium.
