‘Songland’ is a novel attempt from NBC to divert the focus toward the real artists behind smash-hit songs — namely, the songwriters. The songwriting competition attempts to discover hidden talents by giving them a golden chance to write the lyrics for a hit musical number.

Songland Season 2 Episode 1 Recap:
The premiere episode of ‘Songland’ introduces us to the judging panel, which comprises producers Ester Dean, Shane McAnally, and Ryan Tedder. McAnally had earlier shared how his role as a judge seems natural to him in an interview with Billboard, where he said:
“This is what I do in my real life. I work with new songwriters, young songwriters, and I put them with artists and try to help them figure out ways to navigate this business. It is exactly what we do on the show. It is a pinch-me moment, because I’m getting to do the easiest job for me, because it’s what I do every day. I didn’t have to change anything. It just takes me longer to get ready.”
In episode 1, the guest artist is Lady Antebellum. We also meet the featured four songwriters for the first episode. They are ‘American Idol’ alum Tim Halperin, Canadian country singer Madeline Merlo, singer and songwriter Steven Battey, and singer and songwriter Ryan Innes (‘The Voice’). The songs pitched before the panel include ‘Losing You’ by Tim, ‘Feels Good to Me’ by Steven, ‘I’ll Drink to That’ by Madeline, and ‘Long Way Home’ by Ester. Steven is eliminated in the first round, following which the rest three proceed to the top 3. Finally, Madeline’s creation is announced as the winner for the first episode.
