Rayna James met an untimely demise last night (Thursday) on Nashville, but Connie Britton made a graceful exit.
She's posted a note on Instagram thanking just about everyone. Connie writes, "Thank you Rayna Jaymes. For your magic and your dignity. And thank you to all the creators of Rayna Jaymes, for there were many... And then of course the crew of Nashville who brought her to life, every crew member in every department who made Rayna live each week... And then there’s the music. T-Bone, Buddy, Tim, Frankie and all the brilliant songwriters who gave Rayna a voice. There was no music, and no Rayna, without you."
But she saves her biggest thanks for the show's fans. "You made Rayna. You supported her and loved her and gave her inspiration just as she was able to inspire you. You were the energy source, the power behind her heart and soul and life... Long Live Rayna James."
After seemingly surviving a car crash, Rayna crashed in the hospital during the final minutes of last night's episode.
