High-powered, hit-making producer Howie V (Michael Chernus), absolutely loved Juliette's latest single, "Don't Put Dirt On My Grave Just Yet," and is ready to take her straight to the top. Well, actually, first he wants to take her over to Los Angeles to record a new song—and then to the top. 

And Howie certainly has a way with words. "Your rebound needs to be bigger and bolder," the big shot says. "Let those country folks cry into their boots because they didn't realize the absolute Goddess in their midst." This music producer is clearly a pro and knows exactly what to say to melt Juliette's cold exterior.

So what does our blonde bombshell have to say after Howie's buttery speech? Four excited little words: "When do we start?"

Nashville is all-new Wednesday at 10 p.m. on ABC.
