'Inside Thirteen' recently caught up with 'Live from the Artists Den' Executive Producer Mark Lieberman and Director of Programming Alan Light. They discussed about the upcoming fourth season and what makes the show unique.
Here is an excerpt from the Q&A interview where Alan Light gives his thoughts on Kid Rock when asked what he is most excited about on the fourth season of 'Live from the Artists Den.'
And certainly shooting Kid Rock – no one has ever done a shoot inside of Graceland, with a performance inside Elvis’s home, and it took a lot of disparate pieces aligning to enable us to do that. For Kid Rock, he approached it as a highlight of his career and a real landmark appearance for him. So, the fact that we could enable something like that and take a multi-platinum artist and get them access to something that they couldn’t otherwise do, I think that’s always what’s most exciting for us. They have a lot of choices about the things that they could do – the shows that they could play, the stages they could appear on; we have the ability to do something that they can’t do, which is to get them into these really unique spaces and otherwise inaccessible spaces. So when we can do that on that kind of scale, that’s a new level of accomplishment for us.
