Connie Britton won't deny that a Golden Globe nomination is a pretty stellar achievement. But you'll forgive her if she's still preoccupied with there being an album out in the world with her voice on it.
"It's so crazy," said Britton, who stars in ABC's "Nashville" as fictional country superstar Rayna James. The show recently released a soundtrack featuring tunes from the TV drama. "I have to tell you, that is something I never ever thought would happen. It's the season of cool news."
Thursday morning she added "Golden Globe" nominee to her bio. Britton, already an Emmy nominee a few times over for her roles in "Friday Night Lights" and "American Horror Story," was recognized in the lead actress in a drama category -- co-star Hayden Panettiere, who plays her nemesis on the show, received a nomination in the supporting actress category.
Britton got word of the news while watching videos on her iPhone with her 22-month-old son.
"We were watching videos of him and his little girlfriend and all of a sudden, on top of the screen, popped up an email from my manager. My honey let me check it."
