'Songland' is back with Season 2 and fans couldn't be happier as they call it one of the best shows on TV
There were four songwriters who appeared this week hoping to be the one that impresses the judges and Lady Antebellum
The wait is finally over and fans couldn't be happier as NBC's groundbreaking series, 'Songland', returned on Monday night for Season 2.
The series revolves around up and coming songwriters who have the chance to get their song recorded by a chart-topping artiste. For the premiere episode, the series brought in none other than Grammy Award-winning trio Lady Antebellum who are looking for their next big hit.
The contestants received help from the judges/mentors who critiqued their songs and helped them produce/rewrite it according to the likes of the guest artist. There were four songwriters who appeared this week, hoping to be the one that impresses the judges/mentors and Lady Antebellum. But sadly only one could accomplish that.
Out of the four songwriters — Tim Halperin, Steven Battey, Madeline Merlo and Ryan Innes — Canadian country music artist Madeline stood out the most and impressed the trio with her song 'I’ll drink to that'. The song was later changed to ‘Champagne Night’.
Though there were fans who affirmed that the song sounds like a rip off of Maren Morris’s popular song ‘Rich', they did agree that they were glad to see the season return after a long break. Especially during the current coronavirus pandemic, the show would certainly help people get a little normalcy in their lives.
Taking to Twitter a fan wrote, "I'm so pumped that @NBCSongland is back the song that won on the first episode of season 2 is congrats to @madelinemerlo @ladyantebellum pick the right song for them #songland." Adding to that another fan shared, "I know I’m in the middle of watching #TheVoice but I am so excited for season 2 of @NBCSongland! This show is one of the best on TV and so glad it’s back!!!
