Rayna is looking to change her sound. That’s why she’s trying to land rock star Liam McGuinnis to produce her new album. Too bad the guy’s not interested in working with an artist who is all about moms and SUVs. That doesn’t stop Rayna from convincing the guy to give her music a listen. Liam persuades her join him in more than a few shots of whiskey as they chat about her new venture. Rayna is feeling the aftershocks of all that alcohol the next morning. What happened with Liam is all a little hazy. She later lets her record label that Liam’s her new guy. They can get onboard or they can get out of her way.
Teddy and Coleman are set to appear at a Clean Campaign pledge signing where they’ll both vow to not stoop to dirty politics during their run for mayor. Lamar thinks it would be a good idea to make Coleman be late for this event. No one said anything about dirty tricks before the pledge is signed, right? Teddy agrees to his father-in-law’s plan to have his opponent pulled over for a traffic stop. Unfortunately for Coleman, it turns into much more than a moving violation when the cops find the pills Deacon gave him inside his car. A simple traffic stop has just turned into what could be a very damaging arrest.
Coleman gives a speech declaring that he has been sober for 19 years. Rayna knows this to be true. She suspects her father may be behind this stunt. As for Coleman, he declines Deacon’s offer to step up to admit he’s the one who gave him the pills. He is later presented with photos of Teddy getting chummy with Peggy, who has also volunteered to work on his campaign. The pictures sure make it look like these two are having an affair. Now Coleman must decide what he’s going to do with this new information.
