Nashville, Tennessee (March 23, 2021) --- Time Life and the nationally-syndicated hit television series THE SONG: Recorded Live @ TLG Farms announce a new partnership to release live performances recorded exclusively for the show. The songs will be available via Time Life on all major streaming platforms, launching with singers/songwriters who appeared during Season I, including All-4-One, Big & Rich, CeeLo Green, Lonestar, Rome Ramirez featuring Dirty Heads and Rick Springfield. The two companies will also work closely together to develop enhanced content for THE SONG’s YouTube channel, including previously unreleased footage. Since its debut in January 2020, THE SONG has showcased artists from multiple genres as they perform and discuss the stories behind some of the biggest and most compelling hits in contemporary music.
“I can’t think of a better group of music lovers to partner with to expand the reach of THE SONG than the folks at Time Life,” said THE SONG creator and Executive Producer Marc Oswald. “They immediately saw the vision of the show, and their passion for great music and storytelling is helping us reach a whole new audience to experience the magic embodied in these iconic hits and to get to know the people who wrote and performed them.”
“Much like Time Life, THE SONG celebrates music but in a way that deeply appreciates the story and cultural impact of artists and their music,” said Mike Jason, Time Life Senior Vice President, Live Entertainment. “Exploring these songs in such an intimate way and then then seeing them performed live gives the fans a unique window into the creative process and the magic of great songs.”
“It all begins with a song! and the simple way the show goes into how and why a song was written together with its stripped-down performance version highlighting the lyrics is a true appreciation of songcraft,” adds Songwriters Hall of Fame President & CEO Linda Moran. “Time Life’s distribution of THE SONG’s gems will bring more appreciation to the songs we love and the writers behind them.”
THE SONG delivers 30-minute fast-paced episodes that center around a specific iconic song, with the artists and songwriters sharing their personal stories about them. Produced by Oswald Entertainment Group and Tupelo Honey, directed by renowned film and still photographer David “Doc” Abbott and mixed by audio mastermind Tom Davis, the series is syndicated via Gray Television and is available in over 140 markets predominantly on CBS, ABC, FOX and NBC affiliates including New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia, Detroit, Dallas, San Francisco, Miami and Seattle. AXS TV acquired all 10 episodes from Season I, which will continue airing through 2022. Season II began in January 2021, with founding partner Ally joined by new partners America’s legendary motorcycle brand Harley-Davidson and KICKER Performance Audio. To view great moments from both seasons, fans can log on to THESONG.TV to check out full performances as well as exclusive behind-the-scenes content. The site includes details for tuning into the show in specific markets. Season III of THE SONG is currently in pre-production.
