It’s hard to imagine Rayna Jaymes on stage without Deacon at her side. Twenty years ago the two teamed up as songwriters. She became a star and he became her band leader. At that time, they were also a romantic couple but there’s a reason that Rayna and Deacon couldn’t stay together: Deacon has demons that make a stable relationship impossible.
For the past twelve years, their partnership has been strictly professional, and Deacon has always been there whenever Rayna needed him. He’s loyal, talented and also self-destructive, unable to claim the solo success that could await... if he were ever to go his own way.
