Nashville Now is an American talk show that focused on country music performers in the style of The Tonight Show. The show aired live on weeknights on TNN from 1983-1993. The host was Nashville TV/radio personality Ralph Emery. The show was nominated for an ACE Award in 1987 for Music Series. A frequent guest and substitute host was Shotgun Red, a puppet performed by Steve Hall. It originated from TNN's studio ("Gaslight Theater") at Opryland USA in Nashville, which, from 1998 to 2010, was the only remaining standing structure from the Opryland Themepark. It was demolished after suffering heavy damage in the 2010 Tennessee floods.[1]

Reruns of Nashville Now were added to the relaunched Nashville Network on November 1, 2012.
