Ovation original series Song by Song will be back with some big names participating.
The network has ordered new blocks of the documentary music series with new episodes featuring Sheryl Crow, Blondie and Lindsey Stirling. That's three MAJOR reasons to tune in!
"Song by Song is a different twist on the music documentary genre. This series uses the featured artists' hit songs to tell the story of what was happening at that time in their lives, what inspired them to write the music and how their songs impacted their careers and popular culture," said a network exec. "Ovation had great success with our first two seasons, focused on legends Johnny Cash and Dolly Parton. The series continues to grow and cross musical genres and eras with Sheryl Crow, Blondie and Lindsey Stirling, and we couldn't be more excited to work with these cultural icons."
Ovation will kick off the new season this October with Song by Song: Sheryl Crow, focusing on the singer/songwriter's hits "Strong Enough," "If It Makes You Happy," "My Favorite Mistake," and "Redemption Day."
Song by Song: Blondie will premiere this November, featuring the pop/rock/punk super-group's mega hits "One Way or Another," "Heart of Glass," "Call Me," and "Rapture." Founding band members Deborah Harry, Chris Stein and Clem Burke are interviewed.
We are SO tuning in.
Also, Song by Song: Lindsey Stirling will focus on the classically trained electronic violinist, performance artist and composer who has become an Internet sensation since first launching her YouTube channel, Lindseystomp, in 2007, which now has over 5 million subscribers. With over half a billion YouTube views, Stirling has become one of the biggest artist-development breakthrough stories in history.
Again, a third reason we are SO tuning in.
Who will tune in?
