Kimberly Williams-Paisley Joins ABC’s ‘Nashville’

Jon Kopaloff, FilmMagic

Brad Paisley‘s wife, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, who starred for eight seasons on the ABC comedy “According to Jim,” is returning to the network this fall in the highly-anticipated drama, “Nashville.” reports that Kim will be featured in “a multi-episode arc” as Peggy Samper, an old flame and former co-worker of Teddy Conrad (Eric Close), husband of Rayna James, played by Connie Britton.

The series, set against the backdrop of the Nashville music scene, follows Rayna, a country star at her peak, and Juliette Barnes (played by Hayden Panettiere), who is a star on the rise.

Kim, who married Brad in March 2003, first came to the attention of moviegoers (and a smitten Brad himself) in 1991 with her role in “Father of the Bride.” The couple have two sons, Huck, 5, and Jasper, 3.

According to IMDB, Mrs. Paisley is also set for the big screen again in the dramatic comedy “Eden Court,” playing the wife of a washed-up baseball star. The film is in theaters Friday (Aug. 31).

“Nashville” will premiere on ABC on Oct. 10. No word yet on just how many episodes in which Kim will be featured.
