Ever since she chose Luke Wheeler (Will Chase) over Deacon Claybourne (Charles Esten) as her husband-to-be, Rayna Jaymes (Connie Britton) seems to be living quite the charmed life on Nashville.

But are all her Deacon relationship woes really in her past? Not so much, since E! News has some exclusive casting news that promises to stir up all the old feelings Rayna is trying to bury about her ex!

We can exclusively reveal that Anthony Ruvivar is set to portray the guy who is about to make Rayna's personal and professional lives an absolute living hell.

Ruvivar, who most recently guest-starred on the CW's Beauty and the Beast as an FBI agent, will play Brett Raines, a hard-hitting Rolling Stone reporter who isn't afraid to ask his interview subjects the hardball questions. Now, why is this bad news for Rayna?

When Rayna agrees to give Brett the "exclusive" on her new label and upcoming album, the reporter won't stop pushing her for scoop on her wedding to Luke...and her long-hidden and rumored love affair with Deacon. And once this reporter gets a nibble on a big story, he won't let go until he gets his scoop. Will Rayna finally have to break her silence on her long and checkered past with Deacon?

Brett will show up in an upcoming episode.

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