Nashville is back for Season 4 and Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere) is riding high after singing a duet, “Crazy“, with Aerosmith leadman Steven Tyler, who’s promoting his country single, Love Is Your Name. But off stage, Juliette is feeling pretty low. Her husband Avery Barkley (Jonathan Jackson) and their daughter Cadence are currently living with Juliette’s in-laws, Carl and Sandra Barkley.
Carl Barkley is portrayed by Michael Harding. He’s best known for his roles in the film Secretariat (E.V. Benjamin), and on the daytime soap opera The Young and the Restless (Dr. Ananda), and the nighttime soap Army Wives (General Ted Baker). Sandra Barkley is portrayed by Francine Locke. She’s best known for her role as “the shower girl” in Tom Cruise’s dream in Risky Business. Fun fact about Locke: She holds a degree in Criminal Justice from the University of Illinois! Nashville airs Wednesdays at 8pm on ABC.
