It was a beloved fan favorite on ABC that was cancelled on the network last season. However, thanks to all that fan love, "Nashville" was picked up for season 5 by the CMT network. This season has seen it's ups and downs: the death of a beloved major character, a surprise pregnancy, new loves and much more. Tonight, "Nashville" returns to CMT for the mid-season premiere.

GDTB host, and film/TV critic, Stephanie Webb caught up with two of the cast members: Chris Carmack ("Will Lexington") and Sam Palladio ("Gunner Scott") to find out more on the second half of the season and how good all that fan love for the show has felt.

"Nashville" premieres tonight at pm on CMT.
