Juliette Barnes ' career seemed to go down in flames on Wednesday night's Nashville . During her induction ceremony into the Grand Ole Opry, Juliette refused to read the canned apology written for her by Edgehill Records. Instead, Juliette struck a defiant tone against the fans who have burnt her CDs and forced her to cancel concert dates right and left. The controversy stems from a doctored video clip in which Juliette seems to deny God's existence.
Juliette told the Opry crowd, "To all of you who want me to beg forgiveness, who want to burn my records and cancel my concerts. Who want to put my career in the ground, this one's for you."
She then performed "Don't Put Dirt on My Grave Just Yet," a song written especially for this point in Juliette's life.
Hayden Panettiere plays Juliette on the show. She says, "It's got a lot of edge, and she is singing it meaning every word."
"Don't Put Dirt on My Grave Just Yet" will become a theme song for Juliette in the coming weeks, too.
"We have shot a couple scenes, maybe, having to do with 'Don't Put Dirt on My Grave Just Yet,'" Hayden says. "So, it's gonna be a song that people will be very familiar with. "

Brad Paisley made his second cameo on Nashville to induct Juliette into the Opry, but his career advice couldn't keep her from getting dropped from Edgehill Records after that explosive performance. Juliette decided to retreat from public life for awhile, but she did make a move on her confidante Avery Barkley. They ended up sealing their love with a kiss at the end of the episode.
Scarlett O'Connor teamed up with bad-boy producer Liam McGuinnis , who encouraged her to write about darker topics like her mentally ill mother. The collaboration resulted in an artsy new song for Scarlett, titled "Black Roses," but Liam gave Scarlett some pills to keep working in the studio. Looks like those might be a problem for Scarlett in the coming episodes.
Scarlett's uncle, Deacon Claybourne, decided to record his upcoming album live at the Bluebird Café while Rayna Jaymes decided not to sell her upcoming independent album at Boone's retail stores. It turns out she was only getting a shot at placement in Boone's because they were pulling Juliette Barnes' albums from the shelves.
Rayna's sister Tandy got out of testifying against their father, Lamar Wyatt , since the documents she gave prosecutors against him were inadmissible in court. Lamar is now out of jail, and Mayor Teddy Conrad is now running scared. Lamar believes Teddy is the one who testified against him, which explains why Lamar ordered the hit that killed Teddy's wife Peggy .
ABC's Nashville returns with an all-new episode Wednesday night at 9 ET.
