Our favourite country music show is back and breaking records. 

Turns out reviving Nashville was a good move for the CMT Network. Season five of the country music series debuted on Thursday, January 5 in the U.S., breaking a number of ratings records.

The show's return drew 2 million viewers, making it the most watched original content in the network’s history.

Even more viewers tuned into the channel Nick at Nite and streaming service Hulu.

Season five is yet to premiere in Australia, though it's not far off! We'll be able to catch up with all our favourite country music stars on Sunday, February 12 on Showcase.
