Music City (2018) s01e06 Episode Script

Look Before You Leap

1 - You don't know - Pwhat it's like to beity.
waiting at home while your partner is on the road all the time.
Who were the guys that turn your head? Tall.
Blond.
Blue eyes like yours.
I just want a guy that is not going to make me feel second best in the room.
I don't know if I'm ready for that at this point in my life.
I was thinking it could be more than what it was.
I'm 30, and I'm ready.
I'm so ready.
If I like you, I'm gonna tell you that I like you.
Do you like me? So how is music stuff? Oh my goodness, it's been so good lately.
I mean, I've just been really busy with it.
Good.
That is good.
Well, speaking of music, Jackson has a show coming up.
So I thought you might want to go with me.
I don't know if I need to be there.
How are you feeling about I mean, I'm good.
I'm glad that we had that conversation.
It is kind of a weird shift to go from that to just friends really quickly, you know? You should come because I feel like you're the one that pushed him to do this.
And I hope he does really well.
I just think it'd be weird if I showed up.
Like we kind of ended things and I just don't want it to be awkward, you know? I mean, I don't want to make you do anything you don't want to.
Right.
But I just feel like Thanks.
Cool.
Moving on.
I think it could be good to step past everything that's happened.
Yeah.
What's been going on with all your stuff? Oh my gosh.
There's been appearances that I've been doing.
And then I just did a radio show.
I have a few Christmas parades to be in.
Christmas parades? Do you have to wave? Yes.
Can I be on the float with you? Yeah.
Doing push ups.
So you know the band that I played with in college, Riverside Voodoo? At Ole Miss, yeah.
Yeah.
They're coming to Nashville to play a show at the Basement and they asked me to sing a few songs with them.
In front of people? Yeah.
Like why not? No way.
I've only performed one time in public.
I remember that.
But it was so much fun, I'm thinking about asking Savana.
Do you think that would be too ballsy of a thing to ask her to come to? No, of course not.
Did you kiss her? Yeah.
Oh my god.
I definitely want Savana to be there.
At the same time, I'm torn because like Jessica helped me out so much with the music stuff.
You know, just because she did that and she was so helpful doesn't mean y'all have to be together.
[MUSIC PLAYING] Yes or no? Yes.
Yeah I figured.
Oh, crash! So Jackson's playing at the Basement this week.
Have you heard Jackson perform before? No.
I haven't either.
That's cool.
I wonder how he got that.
It's like his first show ever.
I know.
It's like a big deal, right? A lot of big names play there.
Lots of them.
You know, lately I've been thinking about working with a co-writer.
OK.
I feel like my co-writing game needs to step up, because you always learn from being with people who are better than you.
Remember how I told you I was playing at Skulls Rainbow and the manager walked up and said, you got to meet the writers he works with.
Oh, good.
Brooke Eden.
And you've met her or no? Uh, no I haven't.
Just know of her.
If you don't mind, just let me know when you're going to meet with her.
Of course.
It'll be your first co-write with a girl, I think.
I know how those co-writes can be.
Do you co write a lot? With the opposite sex.
Yeah, actually.
I've been meaning to tell you.
I've been meeting up with guys one on one.
Well, as long as you get 50%.
OK, well, yeah.
Just let me know when you meet up with her.
OK.
Thank you, honey.
Yes ma'am.
Let's get out of here, bud.
[MUSIC PLAYING] What's up, bro? Dude, what's up? There he is.
Good to see you, dude.
Are y'all excited? Yeah.
Are you excited? Yeah I am.
It's just like I appreciate y'all letting me do this, man.
We're going to kill it.
After that first time doing it, I feel like it's going to be better.
It'll definitely go better this time around.
So many people coming out.
I need a beer so bad.
I can't yet.
Yeah, you can.
I don't want to forget the words or something.
Pretty lady.
How are y'all.
It's good to see you guys.
Are you nervous or you are you freaking out? I'm excited about it.
I'm ready to get it over with.
We're going to be like right here, like right at the very front.
Wish me luck.
I'm so nervous! Look how cute he is.
I know he's your cousin, but look how cute he is.
See you guys.
Thank you so much.
We appreciate it.
Great.
Why'd you talk me into doing this? It'll be fun.
Have you heard him sing Gravity yet? No.
I haven't heard him sing.
Is he good? Umm.
He better be.
How do I raise this up? Test, test.
Feels pretty good.
Oh my god.
I'm dying.
I know.
(SINGING) Gravity is working against me.
And gravity, it wants to bring me down.
Oh, I'll never know what makes this man with all the love that his heart can stand.
Dream of ways to throw it all away.
Jackson Boyd, guys.
How are y'all doing? What's going on? I'm so sweaty, my bad.
Good to see you guys.
Honestly, like, when we moved here, all our friends in LA were like pulling me aside like That's awesome.
See you guys.
Is that the girl from the pageant party? I think it is.
Do you want to go? I think we should go.
Yeah.
For sure.
[MUSIC - GRIFFIN PETERSON, "SE ME FREE"] (SINGING) I've been running around and I've been laying down.
I've been underground with the devil.
I'm gonna keep thinking about positive lyrics so we don't have to go into mope session next time.
My customers are going to be pissed that I'm not serving them alcohol.
I'm over here writing songs.
This is more important.
They can wait.
Their alcohol can wait.
Hi.
Hello.
What you doing here? Oh, just working on a set.
What are you doing here? I just thought I'd stop by.
We're just, you know, chatting about music.
Yeah.
So guess what I did last night.
What did you do? I went and listened to Jackson.
Was he all covers or does he have his own stuff? He had a few different songs.
They covered Gravity.
Like John Mayer Gravity? Oh my gosh.
And I feel like I might have hurt his feelings.
What did you tell him? Kerry sucked really bad when we moved here.
Or something along those lines.
That's mean.
I meant that practice makes perfect.
But you suck.
Everyone has to start somewhere.
Same with Jackson.
He'll get it figured out.
That sounds so entertaining.
It was entertaining.
And it was really entertaining because guess who was there? Who was there? I didn't want to tell you.
I felt so bad for bringing J Mack.
Oh gosh.
Oh, Savana? Yes! I'm like, I know she's probably sweet.
I just, I'm sorry.
As long as J Mack is, OK, which I think she is.
I probably have to get over it, because she's over it.
But it's gonna take me a little longer than her.
I have to tell you something.
What? I nominated you to be in this magazine, the Nashville Lifestyle Magazine as one of the most eligible singles.
And I heard back today.
They want you to do it.
Oh my goodness.
Hashtag Elisa can't get a boyfriend so we need all of Nashville to help her.
What are you going to wear? I don't know.
I don't know! How are you doing? Good.
What's going on? Oh, you know, it's just a good day for coffee.
Yeah, I got you you like lattes, right? Well, I'm kind of starting this whole new coffee thing, so I haven't tried a latte yet.
Really? Vanilla, or I get a vanilla iced coffee every time I go somewhere.
Yeah, that's just, not ice, but vanilla.
Cool.
Thank you for agreeing to meet me here.
I really appreciate it.
Yeah.
Well, I wanted to talk about the show and everything.
I noticed you guys were there, and again, kind of left.
So I just wanted to make sure everything was cool and like No, it was fine.
I was a little surprised to see Savana there, just cause I didn't know y'all were like dating.
You know, I didn't really know you were going to be there.
Yeah.
Not that I didn't want you there.
I don't like that you felt like you needed to protect me from that.
OK.
I value our friendship.
You have helped me out to get on stage and do that kind of stuff.
Well, I want to talk to you about that.
Like, that was such a cool thing to see you putting yourself out there.
And wanted to tell you I was proud of you for that.
It was a bit nerve wracking.
It's a 10-year town here in Nashville, so like nothing happens overnight.
I mean, my critique would just be we all like to run before we can walk sometimes.
Yeah.
I think just with more practice, it's going to be able to work itself out.
Yeah.
If you want me to, I would love to help you in any way I can, because I do think, like I believe in you.
And I think you have a gift.
Thank you.
So, to your music career.
Yeah, girl.
Becoming a star.
I'm glad I didn't burn this bridge here.
You didn't, no.
That should be the title of my first song, "Burn this Bridge.
" Don't burn this bridge.
I'm not going to.
No.
[MUSIC PLAYING] No, I don't know what tomorrow brings.
But I know one day Nice, dude.
It looks like I'm rubbing off on you.
This shot right here will be you rubbing off on me.
See, this is payback for making me play darts.
Hey, so I set up a meeting with someone who might want to do some co-writing.
It's a girl named Brooke Eden.
You know her? She's been around a while.
Yeah, she's great.
Yeah, great singer, great writer.
Yeah, have you met her before? Yeah.
She's cute, man.
She's a fun personality, and her last single did pretty well.
But it'd be great if you guys could write a good tune.
And I mean, you guys, you'll figure out if you click or not.
Yeah.
Is Rachel cool with you writing together and what not? I imagine as long as we don't try and like meet after the sun goes down with a bottle of wine, we're probably all right.
That's how we met.
(SINGING) Oh, I can't live without it now, [M you make me go oh.
No, I can't live without it now.
Oh, my gosh, Sarah, thanks for coming with me.

Hey, Sarah, it's nice to meet you.
Nice to meet you.
We're so happy to have you here, feature you as one of Nashville's most eligible singles this year.
You guys want to come over here.
Do you want me to change.
Yeah, go ahead and get changed.
OK.
And then we'll see you right back here.
OK.
[MUSIC - DUA LIPA, "NEW RULES"] (SINGING) One, don't pick up the phone.
You know he's only calling cause he's drunk and alone.
Two, don't let him in.
You'll have to kick him out again.
Three, don't be his friend.
You know you're going to wake up in his bed in the morning.
Beautiful.
Nice.
Love that.
You seriously look incredible.
Thank you.
Those are like the ones.
I want to see.
Those are fantastic.
Yeah, there's some really good shots.
I like these.
You look like a top supermodel.
I feel like a supermodel.
I feel like this is going to get me my future husband.
Yeah? Love that.
Yeah.
Big Smiles.
I also think he's got tattoos hidden under there.
Do you like tattoos? I'm convinced my future husband will be fully covered in tattoos.
So is that enough tattoos for you, or do you want like I mean, that's I'm totally OK with that.
Yeah.
He looks really hot.
Oh, yeah.
Hi.
Well, hello, I'm Lee.
Alisa.
Alisa? Nice to meet you.
Hi, I'm Sarah.
Sarah? Nice to meet you.
Nice to meet you guys.
Where you all from? I'm from LA.
Texas.
You? Nashville.
What do you do? Personal training.
Do you know Jackson Boyd? I know Jackson, yeah.
He's friends with everyone.
Y'all know, I guess you all know Jackson? Yeah.
He's a good friend of ours.
I mean, what made you all want to do this magazine? Like, do you think that it will help improve the dating life? Um.
I mean, we are both in a singles magazine, so.
Well, who knows.
Maybe we could hang out some time? Yeah.
[MUSIC - BRONZE RADIO RETURN, "KEEP OR LOSE"] (SINGING) Right now there ain't no roll on.
Here comes the fire now.
Appetizer sampler, here we go.
Thank you, so much.
Thank you.
You need anything else? We're great, thank you.
We're good.
Well, the other night was fun.
You think so? How did you think it went? I mean, it was great.
And I'm so proud of you for doing it.
Are you? I feel like there's a but somewhere.
Jackson, your talent is undeniable.
But at the same time, I mean, like it was bad.
It was not great.
What the hell do you think it was? Was it me? I mean, I guess it was me.
No, but you kept on doing this thing though.
What was this thing? You would like kind of crouch down.
No.
And then you would like no yeah, you would you would do that a lot, but it's fine.
I'm hyperventilating right now.
No, I mean, did you even practice though.
I mean, you just I mean, I tried the best I could with the schedule I have, just trying to get in nights and stuff like that.
Exactly, that's what I'm saying.
I mean, Jackson, remember, this is Nashville.
I mean, this is the place everyone's flocking to to make it.
I mean, do you want this? You think? You're going to have to kill yourself.
It's not going to be easy to make it in this industry.
That's why I went to meet with Jessica yesterday.
Jackson, seriously? I mean, of course, I mean she brings so much upside, you You know, she can only do nothing but help me.
I mean honestly, I think that if you were to sort of cross paths with Jessica again and start working with her, you you have to understand why that would be confusing for Savana.
It would kind of be like playing with fire, right now.
Kerry? Hey.
Nice to meet you.
How's it going? Good.
How are you? Good.
Thanks for meeting with me.
Yeah.
So you just moved here, huh? Five years ago, actually.
Oh, great, me too.
Five years ago? Yeah.
Can I get you something to drink? What're you drinking? Old-fashioned? Old-fashioned.
I have been.
I write like honestly I write by myself so often.
Do you.
Yeah.
Just so much.
But I just love having the control, the way the song turns out.
I don't think there's anything wrong with that.
You know, it's a good sign.
Yeah, absolutely.
Yeah She hates Nashville.
What? If I didn't have a wife or a kid I'd probably be on the road 365 days a year, and I'd love every living day out of it.
[MUSIC - ZAYDE WOLF, "THE JUNGLE"] (SINGING) You and I been up all night.
So faded I ain't gonna lie.
Waking up the wolf inside tearing at me like Samurai.
Let's go.
(SINGING) Oh we're here in the jungle.
Running right into the fire.
I wish it was whiskey instead of wine.
(SINGING) Oh, we're here in the jungle.
All right.
Here we go.
(SINGING) Who's gonna make it out alive? Whoa, whoa, whoa! Here's to whiskey and wine off of a bar.
Check please! Next time on Music City.
What would you do if I came in and woke you up in the middle of the night? I'm aware of what happened last night Rachel's not really cool with anything right now.
It's frustrating.
Next time Kerry gets home past 1:00 AM, he's going to come home to a locked door.
Oh, damn.
Kerry.
Did you meet anybody? Do you mean did I meet any men? Cheers.
Here's to day dates.
Jess, thank you so much for helping me out as well.
It was a thing.
You had no idea.
It's either her or me.
