On Friday, Nashville's other leading lady
, Connie Britton, reacted to the cancellation news. "To the amazing friends and family who are Nashville
, to the cast and crew, and most of all to the fans, I'd just like to say it's been my honor to be a part of this world, to live in it and breathe it in and try to replicate it," the 49-year-old actress Instagrammed. "Sometimes we were more successful than others. But the place of Nashville
in my heart is deep and permanent. I am grateful for the hard work and faith of so many who dedicated themselves to creating and supporting this show. I am forever changed for the better. Thanks for the music."
