On hiatus from the tour, Rayna and Juliette have plenty to deal with in their personal lives back in Nashville. On "Dear Brother," that includes a big birthday bash for Deacon. With his friends and family there, it should be full of incredible music and heartening moments.

Official synopsis for "Dear Brother":
Juliette plans a surprise birthday party for Deacon, which is attended by real-life country stars Dan Auerbach (The Black Keys), Vince Gill, Pam Tillis, Kate York and Kip Moore. During the celebration, Rayna sings, backed up by Pam Tillis and Kate York as themselves, Watty White (JD Souther) and Adria (Erin McCarley). However, Juliette's own performance is derailed by her mother. As Rayna and Teddy's divorce moves forward, the tabloids move in, speculating about Rayna's cheating and thrusting her children into the spotlight; Teddy decides to bring Peggy into his mayoral fold and holds a press conference to make it look like it's all business; and Gunnar's brother charms Scarlett with his singing.
There's a party, but that doesn't mean there won't be drama. Rayna and Teddy deal with the aftermath of their decision to divorce. Rayna confronts Teddy about his relationship with Peggy and is upset that Maddie overheard him talking to his girlfriend on the phone. Teddy promises to keep Peggy away from their daughters, but he definitely doesn't stay clear of her.
Peggy goes to work for Teddy and brings their personal life into the work place. Before long someone will walk in on them together, right? That's how these things usually play out.
Now that Teddy is mayor, Lamar wants his puppet politician to do his bidding, but Teddy has other plans. Instead of picking Lamar's choice for Deputy Mayor, Teddy makes a surprising choice of his own.
At Deacon's party, Rayna sings a beautiful and meaningful song to Deacon. Their feelings for each other are palpable and they finally have a heart-to-heart about her divorce and each other. Could it be the beginning of a deepening romance?
