Nashies far and wide breathed a huge sigh of relief when CMT officially picked up Nashville after ABC pulled the plug, but they still faced uncertainty regarding which cast members would be returning to the series following the network change.

Now, it looks like one Nashville alum’s fate we won’t have to worry about is that of Connie Britton. Britton, who plays Rayna James on the series, seems to have confirmed that she will indeed be back for season 5 in the form of a clever Instagram post.

On Wednesday, (Sept. 7) the actress revealed that she was back in the studio in Nashville recording the track, “Already Gone,” a song that’ll be all too familiar to Nashies as it’s made several appearances throughout the course of the show.

“Back in the studio in Nashville today revisiting the first song I ever sang on this show! “Already Gone.” I’ll never forget my terror. And also my completely humble thrill at having the opportunity to sing a song by such incredible writers as these. Today was slightly less terrifying but still daunting, still humbling. Always will be. And we are all so grateful to the incredible songwriters and musicians here who invite us in, prop us up, and inspire us to make this show. Thanks y’all,” wrote the actress.

Britton paired her emotional caption with a photo of a sheet containing the lyrics to Rayna’s iconic song sitting atop of a sound board.

As excited as we all are to get confirmation of Britton’s return, the matter of Rayna’s fate on the series still seems to be up in the air. As Bustle points out, Britton has reportedly only signed on to film 10 of the 22 episodes of this coming season leading many fans to wonder whether or not this could mean that we should prepare ourselves to see Rayna exit the series.

We guess we’ll just have to tune in to season 5 to see what happens with Rayna’s storyline for ourselves!
