Charlotte invites Vernon to a festival she is attending to cover a band to impress her mentor at the Nashville Scene. Kenny Chesney also calls to invite Vernon to join him on stage again on the same night, Vernon eagerly accepts, thinking he can accomplish both. Walt goes with Vernon to the Chesney show, witnessing Vernon letting it all go to his head. Charlotte catches up with Dallas’ band; Mabel is there, too, playing devoted manager and roadie to the band. Charlotte steps into another band dispute – helping to settle it and getting them onstage. Vernon drinks too much and treats Walt like a lackey. By the end of the night, he crosses the line with Chesney and they get into a fight on stage. Vernon is thrown out. He goes to the festival and publicly embarrasses himself, ruining Charlotte’s chance with the Nashville scene, and wrecking Dallas’ show.
