Deacon is a little aghast that Zach even suggests such a thing. Meanwhile, Maddie gets attention from the talk show circuit due to her CMT Awards performance and Juliette agrees (insists) she can look after her while the rest of the family tries to normalize their life at home. Deacon finds a suitcase full of old tapes and cds and tries to get through Rayna's history with the help of her diary. Maddie is a victim of "fake news" when her words get twisted. Juliette and Scarlet disagree on Maddies opportunities. Deacon gets inspiration from Gene's video. Avery convinces everyone that they can help Deacon finish the record. Deacon with a little help finishes the last Rayna Jaymes record. Zach likes what he gets. Scarlett drops the pregnancy bomb on Gunnar. Might not be yours.
