NEW YORK, Sept. 4 (UPI) -- Production has begun on "Crazy Hearts: Nashville," a new docu-series about aspiring country music stars, A&E Network said Wednesday.

The announcement was made by David McKillop, the network's executive vice president and general manager.

The series will feature eight one-hour episodes shot in Nashville, Tenn.

"'Crazy Hearts: Nashville' goes backstage into the lives and lyrics of several up-and-coming musicians trying to hit it big, fall in love and live to sing about it," a synopsis said.

"Relationships mean everything in Nashville, and there is no shortage of love triangles in this town. Fiery relationships and stiff competition among these rowdy songbirds cause rivalry both on-stage and off. These passionate singers raid the Nashville social scene every night partying and singing the blues while waiting for their big break. Experience the music, struggle, romance and drama that fuel this iconic city."
