AXS TV, the premier destination for classic rock programming, salutes some of music’s hardest working women with a star-studded Sunday Night Rocks block packed with profiles, performances, premieres, and more on May 13th starting at 8 pm ET/5 pm PT.

The celebration begins with back-to-back episodes of the acclaimed music documentary series Rock Legends, compiling rare archive footage, classic performances, and interviews with noted music critics to give views an insightful and in-depth look at the unparalleled careers of punk rock pioneers Blondie at 8 pm ET, and nine-time Grammy-winning folk songstress Joni Mitchell at 8:30 pm ET. Then, on Rock & Roll Road Trip With Sammy Hagar at 9 pm ET, the episode features acoustic performances from icons Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo, and Sarah McLachlan, followed by Eddie Money’s unveiling of the heartfelt song he wrote for his wife, Laurie, in an all-new episode of Real Money at 9:30 pm ET.

 

The evening closes at 10 pm ET, as some of music’s biggest names come together to honor the incomparable legacy of 13-time GRAMMY-winning country trailblazer Emmylou Harris in the premiere of the 2015 special The Life & Songs Of Emmylou Harris: An All-Star Concert Celebration. Highlights include appearances by Sheryl Crow, Kris Kristofferson, Alison Krauss, Martina McBride, Lucinda Williams, Vince Gill, Mavis Staples and more, paying homage to the songs that defined Harris’ career. The event is headlined by the woman of honor herself, who is joined on stage by the night’s guests for an unforgettable rendition of her signature hit “Boulder To Birmingham.”
