THE SONG with New Partners KICKER® and Harley-Davidson® Hits the Road for Season II

New Series Kicked off January 2 with Train, Jason Mraz, Jewel, Richard Marx, Clint Black, Gavin DeGraw and A Marley Family Celebration Of “One Love” Featuring Stephen Marley

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – THE SONG – Recorded Live @ TGL Farms nationally syndicated hit TV series is back for another exciting season with music’s most iconic artists performing legendary songs in some of the most scenic locations of America. Founding partner Ally® returns to present Season II, as THE SONG welcomes new partners America’s legendary motorcycle brand Harley-Davidson® and KICKER® to the team. The 15-episode series launched Saturday, January 2 in more than 140 markets reaching 77.7% of U.S. households. The one-hour season opener highlights featured acts including Train, Jason Mraz, Jewel, Richard Marx, Clint Black, Gavin DeGraw and a very special Marley Family Celebration Of “One Love” Featuring Stephen Marley.

“Although challenging, this season’s filming actually presented us with a unique opportunity to take the show to the artists and record them where they were most comfortable – in or near their own homes,” said the show’s creator and Executive Producer Marc Oswald. “We can’t thank the artists enough for taking the time to hang with us and share their stories and incredible performances of these massive hit songs.”

Returning hosts Krista Marie and Damien Horne traveled coast-to-coast to visit legendary artists at truly spectacular and unique locations. Coffee with Jason Mraz at the Mraz Family Farm, sipping wine with Pat Monahan of Train at Concannon Vineyard in Northern California, riding horses with Jewel in the Colorado Rockies, filming Richard Marx as he performed at sunset on the beautiful cliffs of Malibu, an intimate evening with Clint Black at Analog at Hutton Hotel Nashville and jamming with the Marleys at the world famous Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fla. Shooting wrapped where it all began, with Gavin DeGraw at TGL Farms located near “Music City” Nashville, Tennessee. In-depth interviews with the artists revealed never-before-heard details behind their hit songs, the inspiration and how they became woven into the fabric of popular culture.

Other exciting additions to Season II are multi-artist themed episodes such as “Grammy Winners,” “Party Anthems,” “Love Songs,” “The Songwriters,” “Acoustic Sessions” and “Rockin’ Country.” These special shows incorporate performances from artists from Season II along with CeeLo Green, Don McLean, All-4-One, Big & Rich, Rome Ramirez, Dirty Heads, Rick Springfield, Lonestar, Travis Tritt, and Gretchen Wilson from Season I.

“To have the kind of national syndication clearance on a new show in only its second season is a testament to the unique content provided by the artists involved and the dedication this amazing team has put into THE SONG,” said Executive Producer Cary Glotzer. “We had wonderful feedback on the debut season, and we’re anxious for the viewers to see this new season.”

The show is produced by Oswald Entertainment Group and Tupelo Honey and directed by renowned film and still-photographer David “Doc” Abbott. Gray Television is managing the syndication, led by Greg Conklin and George Johnson, 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 TVacquired all 10 episodes from Season I, which will continue airing through 2022.
