Looks like Rachel Bilson of The O.C. is trading in the beach life for a life in Music City.
She’s joining the cast of CMT’s Nashville!
Bilson is best known as a member of the hit television drama The O.C., which aired from 2003 – 2007 about life in Orange County, California.
Now that Rayna James has died and her part (played by Connie Britton) eliminated from the show, it makes sense that they’d bring in some new actresses for a surprising twist.
In addition to Bilson, Kaitlin Doubleday of Empire will also join the cast of Nashville.
No word yet on a date for the return of season five of CMT’s Nashville, but we’ll keep you posted.
