About the soundtrack album, the show’s creator, executive producer, writer and director Cameron Crowe noted, "Great care was taken that the songs chosen for each artist have another meaning, a thread to our story or characters. The only rule was: no lip-syncing to playback. Not even to live versions recorded in a previous take. These would be authentic live performances. Real performances. That’s where the magic happens, for an audience and even a crew. And luckily for us on ROADIES, every performance."
Since the SHOWTIME® series premiere of ROADIES, each episode has boasted unforgettable performances, including Lindsey Buckingham, The Head & the Heart, Reignwolf, John Mellencamp, Jim James (of My Morning Jacket), and more. Meanwhile, the soundtrack features new and live music from a combination of rock ‘n’ roll legends and critically acclaimed modern voices, representing the classic and modern vanguards. The full 16-song tracklisting is revealed below.
