Judith Hoag has teased that lives could be turned upside down in Nashville.

Things are tipped to reach a climax in upcoming episodes after her character, Tandy Hampton, reported her father Lamar Wyatt (Powers Boothe) to the FBI over some dodgy financial dealings.

"It's going to get bad, really bad, and we may fear for our lives," the actress hinted.

Judith revealed she still enjoys filming the TV musical drama series, which is filmed in real-life Nashville.

"Nashville is like another character in the show. The residents have been so kind to us. They've just opened their arms, embraced us and given us the keys to their city and it's been a joyful experience," she said.

"I love the music. The producers call from songwriters, many of whom you've never heard of before. There's so much talent and almost all of them are from Nashville. I tell everybody to go visit Nashville, because it's a cool town," the 45-year-old added.

Judith heaped praise on her co-star Hayden Panettiere, who plays country singer Juliette Barnes.

" I love her. She is a tremendous actress. I feel very close to her, I feel like a sister. We are just blessed," she said.

She also thanked the show's British fans, adding: "The English fans are hugely devoted to the show. It's really thrilling when people like it across the pond. We're so lucky because we have the talented and handsome Sam Palladio (Gunnar Scott)."

:: The second series of Nashville continues on More4 on Thursdays.
