Listening to a new track with Liam, Rayna hears from Bucky that Marshall wants her to perform for her record label at Edgehill Republic’s 25th anniversary concert at the Ryman Auditorium.
Juliette and Sean are interrupted by Glenn, who says that while she’s been helped by her association with pro quarterback, the bad press outweighs the good. Juliette later meets with Marshall, who suggests she only do one song at the concert—the closing number with Rayna. Glenn pushes Juliette, reminding her it’s in her best interest.
Outside of Tequlia Cowboy, Avery and his band admire their name in the marquee. Marilyn has invited some bigwigs to their performance, but Avery fixates on the fact that Scarlett has never missed a single one of his shows before.
Rayna enjoys a movie night with her family. After Teddy gets home, they are interrupted by a phone call from Coleman wanting to meet. He has surveillance photos of Teddy and Peggy which he plans to release unless his opponent drops out of the race. Coleman believes Teddy when he says it’s not an affair, but he’s just not sure anyone else will.
Tandy and Lamar advise Teddy that he should release a statement saying there was no affair, promising him that the paper trail of his bad deal has been wiped clean. Teddy gives Peggy a heads up about what’s coming. She is understandably concerned. Lamar hands over a mugshot of Coleman’s arrest to Teddy, urging him to feed it to the press so there’s less fallout with the Peggy situation.
Back at the Bluebird, Deacon performs “Pretend It Isn’t There.” Scarlett, affected by the song, wonders to Gunnar if she may have made the biggest mistake of her life by leaving Avery. Gunnar suggests that it could make a good song, but she’s just not in a place to write yet.
Going in to rehearse with Liam, Rayna runs into Deacon, who is leading the house band for the concert. Marshall shows up and threatens to release a Greatest Hits album if Rayna doesn’t perform with Juliette. Rayna negotiaties with the label, agreeing to do the duet in exchange for their backing on a new album.
