Much of the cast of ABC's Nashville calls Nashville home, and many say they have no plans to move even if the show is indeed finished. While executives are trying to sell the series to a new network, these nine musicians are poised to become country hitmakers, if they want to.

Several — like Hayden Panettiere — have already notched hit songs on the radio, while others have pursued other media to get their music to fans. A YouTube star, a rocker, a shy songwriter with an inspiring story to tell — these are just a few of the very musical backgrounds the regulars on Nashville come from.

This list of nine Nashville stars who could become country stars is ranked in no particular order. Flip through and read to see what the odds of each becoming a radio hitmaker are in the near future. The television series may have ended (or maybe it didn't?), but the cast's roots in the music community grew deep over four seasons. There's more to come from the show, even if it's not found on television every Wednesday night.

As always, if there is someone else you think has a chance to make it in country music, explain why in the comments section below.
