That’s really the two actresses belting out country tunes on ABC’s first-season drama. Panettiere (who plays upstart starlet Juliette Barnes) recorded a pop album during her teen years, released the single Wake Up Call in 2008 (and quickly tanked) and contributed songs to assorted Disney collections. Britton, on the other hand, did musical theater in school and worked with a voice coach recently to help her chops as country queen Rayna Jaymes.
