Executive Music Producer T Bone Burnett, the man responsible for the music sung by the artists on the show has decided to exit the musical soap's upcoming second season.

Buddy Miller, Burnett's second-in-command will then take over his post.

According to THR, the in-demand music producer, who’s also married to series creator and exec producer Callie Khouri, never intended to stay past the ABC drama’s freshman season.

“We’re going to do Nashville‘s second season with Buddy and some of the other producers that we worked with,” Khouri told the site, citing her husband’s “overwhelming” schedule which includes film work and producing an upcoming Elton John album.
