Nashville, the musical drama that chronicles the sordid lives of fictional country singers, premieres on January 5 on an all-new network, CMT. Despite the changeover, its star Hayden Panettiere remains reliably sexy.

On Nashville, the 27-year-old blonde beauty plays Juliette Barnes, a former teen idol fighting doggedly to become a top country music sensation. Her character is not much different from reality as Hayden's first big break came on the Disney Channel, before she eventually landed a lead role in the cult-favorite series Heroes. She has steadily found more adult roles ever since, allowing for some more appropriately adult (read: sexy) red-carpet moments.

Below, get ready for the season five premiere of Nashville with eight fiery photos of star Hayden Panettiere.
