ABC's musical drama Nashville season 3 premieres on 24 September.

ABC has revealed the official synopsis for the premiere episode, titled, That's Me Without You. Rayna (Connie Britton) will finally have a tough decision, and choose between Deacon (Charles Esten) and Luke (Will Chase) as Season 3 begins.

The full synopsis of Nashville Season 3 episode 1 reads:

A torn Rayna will have to choose not just between two men, but two directions that her life could take. Juliette, struggling to repair her relationship with Avery, will audition for the leading role of a film biopic. Meanwhile, Scarlett, determined to start fresh, is going to embark on a road trip home and bonds with an unexpected stowaway, and Will and Layla will manage the fallout from his on-camera confession

Nashville's premiere episode will be magical with three live performances within the episode — each performed twice, once for the East coast and once for the West coast.

Real-life superstar, Florida Georgia Line, will perform one of their songs. Chris Carmack (Will Lexington) will sing If It's Love, written by the Striking Matches, and Charles Esten (Deacon Claybourne) will sing a song he co-wrote with Deanna Carter, I Know How To Love You Now.

Nashville Season 3 will premiere at 10:00 pm ET on 24 September and can be watched online through live stream by clicking here.
