1. Ken Tucker on the duet “If I Didn’t Know Better” sung by actors Clare Bowen and Sam Palladio on the Nashville soundtrack:


In the real world, that beautiful song wouldn’t be a country hit, either — these days, the mainstream industry doesn’t like tangled and dark, it likes lighter anthems. No matter: exploring the various strata and struggles of the music industry is what makes Nashville a compelling TV show. And this album displays a few superlative match-ups between actor and material.
