There has been a lot of talk on Connie Britton's involvement with the new season of Nashville, which will premiere January 5th on CMT. Well, it looks like we can all put the rumors to rest because now we are in the know.

During Britton's interview on The Ellen Show, the Nashville star confirmed to the daytime host that, "I'm in it." She even describes this season as "exciting" and that the storylines coming from new showrunners, Marshall Herskovitz and Ed Zwick, (My So-Called Life, Thirtysomething) will "get us back to what Nashville is about."

Phew, now we can all rest and enjoy the show even more without fearing the horror of Rayna Jaymes leaving.
