The Foo Fighters may be a rock band, but they’ve already had a close country connection, as lead singer Dave Grohl worked with the Zac Brown Band on their latest album, ’The Grohl Sessions, Vol. 1,’ but now the entire band is embracing the Nashville music scene. The Band is starring in an HBO documentary series leading up to the release of their new album, ‘Sonic Highways,’ which includes a stop in Music City.
“I really believe the environment in which you write or record an album influences the musical result,” Grohl explains in the trailer, which you can watch above. The documentary features appearances by Carrie Underwood, Dolly Parton and Willie Nelson, who were all supportive of the Foo Fighters’ endeavor. “I know that my music has been influenced by all these different cultures,” Nelson notes. Parton explains in the series the power that Nashville has on so many artists.
The ‘Sonic Highways’ series will debut on HBO on Friday, Oct. 17th at 11PM
The Album ‘Sonic Highways' will be released on Nov. 10th worldwide
“I remember seeing Willie Nelson on the side of the stage, and he was signing autographs or saying hello to fans for the longest time,” Matthews tells Rolling Stone Country of seeing Nelson at the first Farm Aid. “I thought it was amazing how after all those years being a legendary songwriter and a performer in his own right — and being an advocate for labor and for farmers — that he is really just those things because that’s who he is.
Farm Aid returns to Raleigh, N.C., on Sept. 13th
