Hayden Panettiere hung out on the Demonbreun roundabout on Monday.
Clad all in white, the television actress acrobatically climbed the leg of a Musica statue dancer and then strut across the grass as speakers blared a song from the upcoming ABC primetime drama "Nashville."
Crew from the show, which premiers Oct. 10, arrived in Music City last month and filming here is now underway.
The show's storyline centers around Rayna James (Connie Britton of "Friday Night Lights"), a country music legend whose career is fading, and Juliette Barnes (Panettiere), a young up-and-comer scheming to replace her.
Filming at the roundabout on Monday -- which focused on several scenes with Panettiere -- was quite the production with dancers and many extras cast as everything from film crew and security police to excited fans screaming at the chance to get an autograph from Barnes.
Watching the professional production thrilled many onlookers, including 11-year-old Lexi White, who is visiting the city with her mom, Melissa, in hopes of relocating from Portsmouth, N.H.
"It was kind of like, 'Where is she?' " Lexi said, standing on her tiptoes as she reenacted how she looked for Panettiere.
"I've never been this close to any type of celebrity. I've been to concerts but I have never been from here to there," Lexi continued, indicating the 100 yards or so between herself and the filming.
The huge Taylor Swift fan can't wait for "Nashville" to debut and has already asked her mom if she can stay up extra late to watch the show when it airs this fall.
