This just in, new episode photos and previews from the Wednesday January 29th episode of NASHVILLE. Direct from ABC, “Jeff is expecting Juliette to formally apologize for her behavior during her Grand Ole Opry ceremony, but at the last minute she has a change of heart and decides to standby the choices she’s made.
