AXS TV takes fans inside 'Friends in Low Places' | The Music Universe

Music’s Greatest Mysteries presents an interview with songwriter Earl Bud Lee who reveals the truth behind the classic song

AXS TV’s original investigative series Music’s Greatest Mysteries jointly produced by Nashville-based Hideout Pictures and Texas Crew Productions, with Shannon Houchins, Trevor O’Neil, Chip Rives, David Karabinas and Brad Bernstein serving as executive producers, returns with an all-new episode Sunday, December 20th at 9 pm ET/6 pm PT. The new episode explores the history of “Friends In Low Places”—the quintessential country hit made popular by Garth Brooks, said to have been sold to settle an outstanding bar tab and features the song’s writer — Earl Bud Lee — revealing the truth behind the legend in an exclusive interview.

Also featured in this episode, Music’s Greatest Mysteries examines one of southern rock’s most talked-about feuds: “Lynyrd Skynyrd Vs. Neil Young,” which is famously alluded to in the band’s signature single “Sweet Home Alabama.” The episode also sheds light on “The Mystery Of Stevie Nicks,” the spellbinding songstress who some believe to be a practicing witch.

Spanning a wide variety of eras and genres — from hip hop and rockabilly, to country, grunge, and everything in-between— Music’s Greatest Mysteries guides viewers on an immersive journey investigating the infamous myths and larger-than-life personalities which have come to define the music industry throughout the decades. Separating fact from fiction, Music’s Greatest Mysteries presents a fresh perspective on stories both well-known and slightly more obscure, unearthing hidden gems and long-forgotten lore with the help of music icons and noted experts. Blending insightful commentary with rare archive footage, the series seeks to answer the “whys” and “hows” of each new topic until the whole truth is revealed.

The series airs as part of the network’s popular Sunday Night Rocks block, which also includes The Top Ten Revealed at 8 pm ET, Rock Legends at 8:30 pm ET, and A Year In Music at 9:30 pm ET.
