The ensemble cast of Nashville continues to navigate the country music business in the new trailer for the sixth and final season of the drama.

The clip, released Thursday, features Hayden Panettiere's Juliette Barnes struggling with depression as she faces fan backlash over the song she stole in Season 5.

"I don't think I feel like singing. I just need to stop," Juliette says onstage as she stops in the middle of a performance.

The star then meets Darius (Josh Stamberg), a mysterious founder of a self-actualization movement who offers to help Juliette.
