Nashville star Hayden Panettiere not only shoots her hit ABC TV show in the Country Music capital, but she loves living there, RumorFix is reporting.
“Living in Nashville gives me a sense of normalcy that I wasn’t sure I was ever going to get back in my life,” Hayden tells Southern Living magazine. “The people here are amazing … when I first got here, all my defenses were still up, and I was waiting for that world to suddenly creep back in. When it didn’t, I realized that I can live a normal life here with people who don’t judge you based on what you do or who you are in the public eye.”
The newly-engaged star is the first celebrity ever to appear on the cover of the magazine in its 48-year history.
The 24-year-old and her fiancé, heavyweight boxer Wladimir Klitschko, bought a house in Music City this year. “Even if something happens to the show,” she says, “I know this is a place I want to call home.”
