On Feb. 18 Faith Hill is backed by a full orchestra, to perform selections from her greatest hits. Filmed at the Sears Centre Arena in Chicago, Hill’s performance includes “The Kiss, “ “The Way You Love Me,” and Grammy Award winning songs “Breathe,” and “Cry.”
On Feb. 4 Three Girls and Their Buddy: Emmylou Harris, Patty Griffin, Shawn Colvin and Buddy Miller play an episode that captures the group’s special bond, having been in each other’s bands, produced and played on each other’s albums, covered each other’s songs, and sat in on each other’s shows over the years.
Willie Nelson guests on Feb. 25 with his eight-piece band gathered round the stage to highlight songs from his first-ever bluegrass album, produced in collaboration with T-Bone Burnett. Tipping his hat to the genre, Willie puts his stamp on standards like Bob Wills’ “Trouble In Mind,” and Al Dexter’s “Pistol Packin’ Mamma,” as well as his own hits like “Whiskey River.”
The new season will also include performances from Lynyrd Skynyrd (Feb. 11) and The Fray (Jan. 28).
