Songwriters Under the Covers with Victoria Shaw on NPT

A new, intimate, music performance and storytelling series created in collaboration with award-winning songwriter Victoria Shaw puts the spotlight on the songwriters of some of music’s biggest hits across pop, rock, and country. Top-selling songwriters share the little-known stories behind their hit songs along with an intimate live acoustic performance on stage.

“I have been doing these shows for the past 20 years. I’m blessed to know a lot of talented, funny, wonderful musicians who are dear friends. I invite those friends who just so happen to be top-selling songwriters from across the pop, rock and country worlds to join me on stage to play their huge hits and reveal what went into creating those iconic songs. It’s very organic, and my shows feel like you’re hanging out in my living room listening in on a bunch of songwriters singing songs, swapping stories and cracking jokes. That’s my goal every night, for my shows to feel like a party at my house.

It feels more like you are eavesdropping on a studio session between friends than watching a show,” adds Fuss. “All the best songwriters seem to know each other, and they definitely all know Victoria, which is why she is the perfect host. We get to not only hear acoustic versions of our favorite songs sung by those who wrote them, but we get to hear the little-known stories and anecdotes behind them that are rarely told.”
