About the character: Lamar WyattIndustrialist. Philanthropist. Kingmaker. Lamar Wyatt is Nashville.
Some folks respect him. Others fear him. Lamar doesn’t care which you chose, just as long as you don’t get in his way.
Thirty years ago, Lamar’s wife died, leaving him a widow and single father to his two daughters, Rayna and Tandy. Today, Tandy works at his side and is the heir apparent to Lamar’s fortune and business empire. Rayna, in contrast, hasn’t seen eye to eye with Lamar in years, and to call their relationship strained would be an understatement.
Still, Lamar sees himself as a family man; and if he and Rayna have problems, it’s only because he’s tried too hard to protect her—his way.
In Lamar’s house, father definitely knows best.
