Scout Taylor-Compton has certainly shaken things up as Erin on the current season of ABC's Nashville. Her character's free-spirited attitude and inability to commit to anything have definitely taken Gunnar on one wild ride. Before she turned heads on the hit musical drama, the actress was perfecting her scream as Laurie Strode in Rob Zombie's 2007 remake of Halloween, and portrayed Dean's little sister on The Gilmore Girls

With Nashville's dramatic winter finale quickly approaching (airs Wednesday 10/9c) the actress answered our 26 questions.
