KINGSPORT — When ABC’s hit musical drama "Nashville" airs Wednesday night, May 8, Tiffany Reeves will be glued to the television screen.

Sure, the 12-year-old Colonial Heights Middle School sixth-grader is anxious to catch the latest developments involving Rayna Jaymes (Connie Britton,) a legendary country music superstar whose stardom is fading, and rising teen starlet Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere). But she’s more interested in spotting another familiar face on screen that night: her own.

Earlier this month, Reeves traveled to the show’s set in Music City, where she was one of several extras filmed for the May 8 episode. It may not be a starring role, but Reeves said she’ll be thrilled for even a split-second of screen time, her first paid acting gig.
