How can you help promote Nashville season 3 ?

Season 3 of NASHVILLE is rapidly approaching , yet there has not been much promotion of the show on ABC’s part even though NASHVILLE is about to make TV history with 3 LIVE musical performances during the episode.
We believe our beloved show deserves much more attention and need your help to tell ABC that we want to see more promotion for NASHVILLE!

There are two ways that you can help – You can do both for even more of an impact!

Dear [Candice/Patrick/Paul],

I am writing to you in regards to the primetime drama NASHVILLE.

I am a [your age] year old [your gender] who lives in [city, state/country]. In addition to watching NASHVILLE live, I watch the show back via DVR. I also purchase the singles and albums of music from the show which are released on iTunes.

My reason for writing is to express my interest in seeing the show NASHVILLE advertized more. The show has a strong fan base which could be grown by strategic promotion, especially via commercial spots.

I hope that the promotional department at ABC will strongly consider more promotion for NASHVILLE.

Respectfully Yours,

Join Nashville Summer Binge Watch: It Only Gets Better

Nashville super fans are awesome. They’re invested in the show, watch it live as much as they can (maybe even live tweet, make fan videos or write fan fictions), root for the cast and crew, debate over characters and storylines, listen to the soundtracks on repeat and look at the music industry through brand new eyes. They show special interest in the city itself (maybe even visit it) admire the talent of the cast and go watch them perform live whenever they can and maybe even make friends with other fans from all around the globe.

Super fans protests against misguided people that consider cancelling their show (NEVER!!!), becomes Nielsen ratings experts and most importantly use the summer to introduce the show to new people by encouraging them to binge watch it on Hulu so that more people will be part of the Nashville experience.

Super fans know Nashville IS important: The city, the beautiful music that tells a story, complex characters, the spotlight on songwriters and musicians in general, the epic love stories (by the way #TeamDeacon), the variety of rich full realized female characters, the depth, the humanity and intelligence, the humor and the love and passion that all the people involved in this huge production share for this special ‘one of a kind’ thing called Nashville that comes across IN EVERY SINGLE SHOT and transforms it to the show with the biggest heart on TV….ALL of it (and more) makes Nashville for more than “Just” another TV show.

thing is once you go Nashville you never go back. Meaning, once you’ve become a Nashville fan, summer hiatus can become quite difficult. That’s because a sad well known fact is that fans are never on hiatus. So while the productions of our beloved Nashville go on a (well deserved) vacation to gather their strength before diving back into the madness and ruin our mental stability for another year (full 22 episodes. Hooray!!) , the loyal fans are not going anywhere. There’s no vacation in the world that can take away entirely our pining for everything Nashville, even if we have a great time (Just for the record: despite popular belief we do have lives). All it takes is one tiny piece of information, one tweet from the writers’ room, to derail us.

So what’s our “coping mechanism”?

Well, shooting at empty bottles or sleeping with Luke Wheeler is probably not it, but acceptance and intensive re-watch is.

First, we accept it as a necessary evil; the kind that gives us a well needed perspective on our…hmmm…Addiction…and helps us NOT cross that thin line that separates a passionate super-fan from a crazy creepy one.

Second, we rewatch. We go back to old episodes (best to share it with new fans), get reminded of great moments, forgotten characters and storylines, enjoy all the things we enjoyed the first time and notice all the things we might have missed before.

Since the ones writing these lines know and shares your pain, we offer our support with weekly rewatch of pivotal Nashville episodes. Some of you already know about it and join us every Wednesday during Nashville’s regular timeslot. For the rest, this is an open invitation:

We welcome you with open arms to follow us on twitter, join the live tweet, and share your thoughts (and pain) so that we will get through this summer together without turning into Deacon “On the road”. Instead, use us as your personal support group. It’s the responsible thing to do…and it’s also so much more fun this way.

So here’s the list of episode we plan to watch until September:

June 25 – Episode 1X14 “Dear Brother”

July 9 – Episode 1X18 “Take These Chains from My Heart”

July 16 – Episode 1X19 “Why Don’t You Love Me”

July 23 – Episode 2X21 “I’ll Never Get out of This World alive” (season 1 finale)

July 30 – Episode 2X01 ” I Fall to Pieces”

July 31 – Episode 2X02 “Never No More”

August 6 – Episode 2X04 “You’re No Angel Yourself”

August 13 – Episode 2X07 “She’s Got You”

August 20 – Episode 2×12 “Just For What I Am”

August 27 – Episode 2X13 “It’s All Wrong, But It’s All Right”

September 3 – Episode 2X19 “Crazy”

September 10 – Episode 2X20 “Your Good Girl’s Gonna Go Bad”

September 17 – Episode 2 X22 “On the Other Hand” (season 2 epic season finale)

 

How you can help Nashville ABC be renewed for a 3rd season:

At this time no decision has been made as to whether NASHVILLE will be renewed or canceled. We want to show ABC how much the fans love the show and want it to be renewed for a 3rd season, so we need to take action, and we need your help! 
 
We’re organising a campaign to contact Paul Lee, ABC Entertainment President, who will be making the scheduling decisions for the Fall 2014 season, to tell him we want a 3rd season of NASHVILLE.
