ABC drama Nashville’s executive music producer T Bone Burnett will not return for the show’s second season, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Buddy Miller, who worked alongside Burnett during season one, will take over Burnett’s role. Burnett is married to Nashville creator Callie Khouri, and also produced and co-produced songs featured on the show.
“T Bone’s schedule this year is so overwhelming with the Llweyn Davis movie coming out and several other producing projects that he has: Elton John’s record and so on,” Khouri told The Hollywood Reporter. “We’re going to do Nashville‘s second season with Buddy and some of the other producers that we worked with. T Bone set the gold standard for the show. His commitment to the quality of the music, the sound for the characters and all of that was something that we were very lucky to get him for.”
Burnett is currently working on music for the Coen brothers feature Inside Llewyn Davis. The cast includes Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan and Justin Timberlake.
