Nashville Sneak Peek: Hayden Panettiere Skinny Dips With Charles Esten!

Juliette Barnes sure knows how to get a guy's attention!

In a sneak preview from the October 17 episode of ABC's Nashville, the young country singer (played by Hayden Panettiere, 23) shamelessly flirts with songwriter Deacon Clayborne (played by Charles Esten, 47) in the back of his pickup truck.

"You're really good at this," Deacon tells Juliette after they finish penning a new track together.

"It's not much of a compliment if you're that surprised," she responds. "You know, we could do a whole lot more of this if you just came on tour with me."

When Deacon explains that he can't hit the road with her out of loyalty to country music legend Rayna James (Connie Britton, 45), Juliette finds another way to tempt him — by skinny dipping.

"You need to focus on what's in the present what your future holds," she says before removing her top. "Like this."

Before Deacon joins Juliette in the lake, he says to himself, "Deacon, you are a dead man."

Nashville airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. EST on ABC.
