Praise the country music angels!

The TV gods have answered our prayers: ABC has given freshman drama Nashville a full-season order! Yes, that means you can expect plenty more soapy goodness from Connie Britton, Hayden Panettiere & Co. 

And the good news doesn't stop there!

Fans of the network's Friday night comedy line-up also received some good news as ABC ordered three additional scripts for Tim Allen's Last Man Standing and Reba McEntire's Malibu Country

In last week's outing, Nashville scored 6 million viewers and 2.0 in the adult 18-49 demo.

ABC has yet to make a decision regarding its two other freshman dramas, Last Resort and 666 Park Avenue. Shonda Rhimes' Scandal recently received a full-season order.

Nashville airs Wednesday at 10 p.m. on ABC.
