Watch: Connie Britton gives the best answer ever about the secret behind her hair

Yes, Connie Britton has incredible hair. But she also has an incredible brain.

This video proves both:

In keeping with both her real-life persona and her fearless country music star character, Rayna James, on the hit American television show Nashville, Britton launched this video with co-star Laura Benanti (who wrote, directed, and co-produced it) as part of The 2015 Fall #AskHerMore campaign.

The campaign, now in its second year, is aimed at getting reporters to ask women more substantive questions than the typical, “Who are you wearing?” on the red carpet. For Britton, the questions are usually along the lines of, “Tell me about your hair.”

Of course, nobody is disputing the amazingness that is Britton’s hair. But as this video points out, it’s the least of her accomplishments.
