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’s alcoholism made a stable relationship impossible.
Now that he’s sober, however, and Rayna has called off her engagement to Luke Wheeler, it seems the timing may finally be right for this star-crossed couple. There’s just one thing: Deacon has recently received a liver cancer diagnosis that means he may only have six months to live if he doesn’t receive a transplant.
