"SONG BY SONG: SHERYL CROW" PREMIERES TUESDAY, OCTOBER 14, ONLY ON OVATION
Four-Part Series Includes Exclusive Interviews with Sheryl Crow, Willie Nelson, Amy Grant, Rascal Flatts, Lissie, Jimmy Iovine and More
SANTA MONICA, CA - September 11, 2014 - Song by Song, the popular and critically acclaimed original series from Ovation, America's only arts network, returns with the new season premiere of Song by Song: Sheryl Crow on Tuesday, October 14th at 10PM ET. The documentary music series, from the Emmy(R)-nominated production company TH Entertainment, will focus on four of Crow's most-enduring hit songs and the stories and inspiration behind them.
In each half-hour episode, viewers will hear from friends, colleagues and Sheryl Crow herself on the impact of the music on their lives and careers, as well as on the music business and popular culture. Among the featured interviewees, in addition to Crow, are Willie Nelson, Amy Grant, Rascal Flatts, Lissie, Jimmy Iovine (co-founder Interscope Records), David Wild (Rolling Stone), Andrew Hampp (Billboard), Scooter Weintraub (Manager) and Jeff Trott (songwriting partner).
Here is the lineup for Song by Song: Sheryl Crow:
"Strong Enough" - premiering Tuesday, October 14th at 10PM ET. After the first singles on her debut record don't get any traction, Sheryl finds success with a powerful statement about finding a partner who can truly be her equal.
"If It Makes You Happy" - premiering Tuesday, October 21th at 10PM ET. Following years of singing backup for other artists and contending with envious collaborators, Sheryl proves her autonomy with a hit that solidifies her position as a musical powerhouse who answers only to herself.
"My Favorite Mistake" - premiering Tuesday, October 28th at 10PM ET. Sheryl taps into her personal life for inspiration, leading to an intimate song about a past relationship and creating speculation over her unnamed muse.
"Redemption Day" - premiering Tuesday, November 4th at 10PM ET. Inspired by a trip to war-torn Bosnia, Sheryl writes this song, which is later recorded by Johnny Cash, and ultimately ignites her interest in recording country music.
Upcoming Song by Song programs include Blondie, premiering November 11th, and Lindsey Stirling, premiering December 9th. Ovation kicked off its Song by Song franchise in 2012 with the premiere of Song by Song: Johnny Cash, which focused on the stories behind six of the country music legend's classic hit songs. The season was a critical and ratings success for the network, inspiring a second six-episode season, Song by Song: Dolly Parton, which premiered in early 2013. Song by Song is produced for Ovation by TH Entertainment.
