Host Ken Paulson interviews singer-songwriter Rodney Crowell, who among other stories recalls the days when Nashville was run by "characters," not corporations. Crowell is the writer of "Shame on the Moon" by Bob Seger and "She's Crazy for Leaving" by Rodney Crowell. A Texas native who made his way to Los Angeles then to Nashville, Crowell was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2003 and the Texas Heritage Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2008.
Host Ken Paulson introduces viewers to the Hall of Fame songwriters behind some of the world's favorite songs. Elvis Presley, Otis Redding, Gladys Knight, George Strait, Garth Brooks, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw - all have recorded iconic songs from the pens of the legendary writers profiled this season. Recorded on and around Music Row in Nashville, each 30-minute episode traces the career arc of a spotlighted songwriter and treats the audience to original, acoustic renderings of hit songs from the creators themselves, including "The Thunder Rolls," "(Sittin' on the) Dock of the Bay," "I Fought the Law (And the Law Won)," "In The Ghetto," "Midnight Train To Georgia" and many more.
