‘The Songwriters’ Second Season Kicks Off June 21

The Songwriters, a weekly TV series spotlighting members of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, will return to Nashville Public Television starting this Friday, June 21. The half-hour interview show will feature behind-the-scenes conversations with a dozen members of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame as well as rare performances of some of the most-revered songs in the history of Music City.

This year’s episodes will star Rodney Crowell, K.T. Oslin, Jeffrey Steele, Bobby Braddock, Mark D. Sanders, Aaron Barker, Randy Goodrum, Matraca Berg, Tony Arata, Byron Hill, Wayne Kirkpatrick and Craig Wiseman.

The Songwriters is hosted by Ken Paulson, Dean of the College of Media and Entertainment at Middle Tennessee State University. Previously, he served as the editor and senior vice president/news of USA Today, and as president of the First Amendment Center, Paulson was the host of the Emmy-honored television program “Speaking Freely,” which was seen in more than 60 PBS markets nationwide over five seasons.

“We’re very pleased to share these rich conversations with some of the world’s greatest songwriters,” says Paulson. “Their insights about their art and inspiration make for truly compelling television.”
