ABC’s new nighttime drama, “Nashville”, premiered on Wednesday to rave reviews and more than a few questions….like just who are the two main female characters, played by Hayden Panettiere and Connie Britton, based on?

For months, the pair have been defending their characters saying they weren’t based on anyone specific, but now Hayden has fessed up to who her character is and isn’t based on.

She tells USA Today that despite Taylor Swift being the most obvious answer to who her character, Juliette Barnes, is based on, she’s not the right answer.

“Taylor’s known to be a very nice person and handles herself well,” Hayden said of her own neighbor, who said she loves the show and knows the character isn’t meant to be a nasty version of her.

So who is the nasty, scheming character based on? Surprisingly she’s based, at least a little bit, on Carrie Underwood.

“She’s one of those girls that doesn’t do the whole dancing-around-choreography thing but has that stage presence like no other,” Hayden said of Carrie. “She can just stand there and be incredibly interesting.”
