In the wake of a critically and commercially successful first season, ABC’s hit prime time drama ‘Nashville‘ has been nominated for two Emmy awards.

Series star Connie Britton, who plays country superstar Rayna Jaymes on the show, is one of seven nominees for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series. She is up against ‘Homeland’ star Claire Danes , Michelle Dockery from ‘Downton Abbey,’ Vera Farmiga from ‘Bates Motel,’  ‘Mad Men’ star Elisabeth Moss, Kerry Washington from ‘Scandal’ and ‘House of Cards’ lead Robin Wright.

According to Nashville’s Tennessean newspaper, Britton has previously been nominated twice for her role on ‘Friday Night Lights,’ and once for ‘American Horror Story.’

‘Nashville’ is also nominated in the category of Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics for ‘Nothing in This World Will Ever Break My Heart Again.’ Nashville songwriters Sarah Buxton and Kate York wrote the song, which Hayden Panettiere‘s character, Juliette Barnes, sang in the show’s first season finale. The track also appears on ‘The Music of Nashville: Season 1 Volume 2.’

The 65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards are scheduled to air on Sunday, Sept. 22 on CBS.

‘Nashville’ began filming its second season this week in Music City. The new season is slated to premiere on Sept. 25 on ABC.
