In the second episode of Nashville, Kentucky native Mika Combs gets a
big break. After taking a job at a club named Losers, Mika befriends
Erica, who introduces Mika to the Sekret Service. The Sekret Service
is a group of music managers that like to drink beer, have bonfires,
drive around on lawnmowers, and target shoot at demo CDs.
More importantly, the Sekret Service puts on a music event called “South Lex.” Mika impresses the Sekret Service enough to earn a spot on “South Lex.” Even though some of the Sekret Service doesn’t think Mica is ready, they still offer her a spot. The gamble pays off, and Mika wows the crowd and catches the eye of a couple of record producers.
Things don’t go quite as well for another aspiring female country singer on Nashville. Rachel Bradshaw received some management advice to form a trio with her friends Sarah Gunsolus and Lindsey Hager. The trio succeeds in booking a performance at Tootsies bar, which is attended by a couple very important record label executives. Unfortunately, the trio does not impress, and the feedback they get is that they were pitchy and lacked stage presence.
