Connie Britton finds a true voice in 'Nashville'
After the indelible impression Connie Britton made as Tami Taylor, the über-capable and compassionate high school counselor and wife to a football coach on "Friday Night Lights," Britton ventured into the outlandish fun house of FX's "American Horror Story" — and received Emmy nominations for her work on both shows. This season, she's the pivot around which ABC's hit new drama "Nashville" revolves, playing Rayna James, a mid-career country music star battling to remake her place in a changing industry. Regardless of what role she plays, Britton comes across as strong and relatable; she's us, but with a hotter body. She took time out to speak with The Envelope by phone as she was pulling into work in Nashville on a recent afternoon.
