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.
“The Song – Recorded Live at TGL Farms” pays it forward through cause-related partnerships with The Songwriters Hall of Fame and Belmont University’s Mike Curb College of Entertainment & Music Business to provide both scholarship and internship opportunities for their outstanding programs and to help develop new talent in the music, media and television arts disciplines. These partnerships will be supported by a $25,000 donation from Ally.
