While most of her costars from the show “Nashville” have already purchased homes in the area, the young star expressed a tremendous sense of practicality in making this decision. During an interview, Hayden Panettiere expressed the thinking behind her hesitation.
That's a big investment and a big commitment for something [like a TV show] that can be very fleeting. “
However, as filming has progressed, the star has started setting down roots in the deep south. She went on to explain that even if her show is canceled, she plans on remaining in the southern city.
But after a year and a half of living here, I felt that I had enough personal investment here, that I want to have a grounding here, even if something happens to the show. Knock on wood it won't! But I have amazing friends here and this just feels good as a home base."
With the future of her show relatively secure, it looks as though Nashville has a new permanent celebrity resident.
