Executive produced by Marc Oswald, Cary Glotzer and award-winning director Trey Fanjoy, the series was filmed at picturesque TGL Farms in Hendersonville, Tennessee. The setting provided a relaxed atmosphere for hosts Krista and Damien to dig deep into the lives and careers of the artists and songwriters. The TGL Farms stable was transformed into a studio soundstage, where the artists performed intimate versions of their hit songs and often introduced new music.
“We assembled an elite team of music and television professionals with the singular goal of showcasing some of the most iconic songs in American contemporary music,” said Oswald. “We are honored and humbled that this diverse group of artists and songwriters trusted us with their most important works.”
CeeLo Green, award-winning singer, songwriter, producer, actor and “Best of The Song” finale co-host said of the show: “There is something about the spirit and musical atmosphere of Nashville, Tennessee that motivates magic.
