    "I have gotten absolutely hooked on this show. I don't even consider myself remotely a fan of country music. The stories of the characters on this show are so interesting though. I have even found some of the music online because it was more of the old-school country music. I have thoroughly enjoyed it so far and look forward to many more episodes!"

    "This show is the best! I love music and love musicals, but finding an actual TV show that contains them is hard. The storylines are so engaging and really make you feel like you are back in highschool. But the music is the real key to this show, it is so well done and just PERFECT"
