Still really enjoying the show surprisingly. There are still a few things they need to work on, but I'm really enjoying the majority of these characters, and think most of of them aren't one-dimensional, with the exception of Lamar, where, as awesome as Powers Boothe is in the role, he's pretty much every rich bad guy I've seen in movies/TV.
That said, while Connie Britton continues to be spot-on acting wise, I agree that her singing seems to be weak. I can maybe buy that the power in her voice has gotten weaker because of age perhaps, but it's hard for me to believe she's only now losing her success. Hayden Panettiere continues to be surprisingly good as well and I'm glad they address that Juliette actually has a good enough voice, it's just she's currently on a path where style is over substance, because Hayden does have a better voice then Connie and even other singers out there, IMO. Charles Estin continues to make me forget about his Whose Line history, even though I'm still not sure what to make of Deacon.
Loved the Powers Boothe and Robert Wisdom scene. Good casting with Robert; he isn't as famous as Powers, but he has a gravitas and presence to him, that I can see him being a threat and not just getting blown away by Lamar and his schemes.
Looks like Gunnar and Scarlett are going to team up now. Not sure where they are going with this, but I'm rooting for them.
Only character I'm still underwhelmed with is Rayna's husband. I just find him to be kind of a bore.
