Jackson Browne and Eddie Vedder To Appear In Roadies

The new Showtime series Roadies gives an insider look at the life of the people behind the scenes in music, the people who moves the equipment from city-to-city in time for the next show.

Produced by Cameron Crowe, the show premiered two weeks ago and will run through August 28 when a finale will air with a number of artists brought in by Cameron especially for the show.

Among those appearing are veteran artists Jackson Browne, Eddie Vedder and Robyn Hitchcock along with Jim James, Nicole Atkins, Jess Wolff, Holly Laessig (Lucius) and Gary Clark, Jr.

The show has an impressive cast that includes Luke Wilson, Carla Gugino, Imogen Poots, Rafe Spall, Keisha Castle-Hughes, Peter Cambor, Colson Baker (a.k.a. Machine Gun Kelly) and Ron White.

From the press release:

The ROADIES soundtrack will be released by Republic Records and Stardog Records. Previously announced tracks include I Wish I Was Sober by Frightened Rabbit featuring Mike McCready, Are You Satisfied? by Reignwolf, and Big Love by Lindsey Buckingham.

The hyper-eclectic music featured on ROADIES includes works from artists as wide-ranging as Bob Dylan, The Ramones, The Replacements, The Ting Tings, Jeff Buckley and more. Many of music’s best are appearing in the series, including Lindsey Buckingham, The Head & the Heart, Lucius, Halsey, Jim James and Reignwolf, who also contributes some of the score for this season’s second episode. Joy Williams (The Civil Wars) guest stars. Crowe, with help from ROADIES producer and Stardog Records label president Kelly Curtis, hand-picked the genre-bending, decade-spanning mix of new and classic rock, indie, folk, bluegrass, electronic, and blues and more. Featured music includes an extremely rare, never-before released cover of Bob Dylan’s Farewell Angelina by Jeff Buckley and Gary Lucas, Dreams of Flying off of Tom Petty’s band Mudcrutch’s recent record, Buckingham’s Bleed to Love Her and Big Love, Hannah Huston from The Voice on I Can’t Make You Love Me, Loudmouth from the Ramones and Given to Fly by Pearl Jam. The songs will at times reflect some of the Staton-House band tour stops – in the episode in which the band performs in Atlanta, the music includes Kick Your Game by the Atlanta trio T.L.C. and the live version of Oh Atlanta by classic band Little Feat.
