“Nashville” is invading D.C. as the stars of the country music-infused ABC series, Connie Britton, Hayden Panettiere, and Chip Esten, return to the nation’s capital for this year’s White House Correspondents’ Association dinner.


As they did last year, the actors will attend the dinner as guests of ABC. They’ll join a lineup of other popular stars of the television network, including Tony Goldwyn and Bellamy Young of “Scandal,” “Live with Kelly and Michael" Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan, and “Modern Family” stunner Sofia Vergara and co-stars Eric Stonestreet and Jesse Tyler Ferguson.
