There's no need for car wrecks in tonight's Nashville finale. Why? Because the emotional drama will already be more than enough for the ABC hit's viewers to handle!

We chatted with two of Nashville's leading men, Charles Esten and Will Chase, whose characters Deacon and Luke are vying for Rayna (Connie Britton), at the Entertainment Weekly and ABC Upfront party in New York City on Tuesday night, where they dished on the heartbreaking finale in store for fans. 

Though Chase assured us there are "no fisticuffs" between the handsome men, he teased, "One woman will tear us apart!"

And while last season's finale ended on a shocking cliffhanger, with Rayna and Deacon getting into a major car accident, Chase said there won't be a soap operatic twist by the end of tonight's finale, telling us, "It's a cliffhanger in a character-sense. It's not cliffhanger in that there's a car crash."

Esten added, "We're not in a flipped truck this year. It's going to tear some hearts apart."

Sam Palladio also got in on the finale-teasin' fun, telling us, "There's a lot of big announcements and big drama that happens. You're going to see a couple of flames maybe sparking back to life."

For more scoop from Nashville's hot trio of men, including who is the best "twerker" on set and who gives an outstanding musical performance in tonight's episode, watch our interviews with them above!

Nashville's finale airs tonight at 10 p.m. on ABC.
