Before his rookie season in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Austin Dillon will make an appearance on the all-new episode of Nashville on ABC. Dillon guest stars on the episode entitled, “It's All Wrong, But It's All Right”, when country superstar Luke Wheeler (Will Chase) surprises music legend Rayna James (Connie Britton) by showcasing James' brand on a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series car at Atlanta Motor Speedway. The episode premiers on Wednesday, January 29 at 10 pm. ET.

"It was definitely a fun experience spending the day on the set with the cast of Nashville," said Dillon, who will pilot the No. 3 Dow/Cheerios Chevrolet under the Richard Childress Racing banner this season. "I feel most comfortable in a race car but it’s cool to have experiences like this where you can be on the set of a popular television show and meet new people. The director kept telling me to slow down because I was reading my lines too quickly. I guess I do everything fast."

Dillon, along with other cast members, will be live tweeting during the episode. You can follow him on Twitter @austindillon3. You can also get a behind-the-scenes look at the appearance on
