Kix Brooks & Crystal Gayle also announced for the 18 episode season
The Big Interview returns to AXS TV for a star-studded fifth season, premiering Tuesday, February 14th at 8 pm ET/5 pm PT. Hosted by reporting veteran Dan Rather, the series boasts exclusive, in-depth discussions with some of the biggest names in entertainment, as the celebrated journalist gets his subjects to open up as only he can.
Season five features 18 all-new episodes and kicks off with a candid conversation with Kid Rock, the musician, actor, and activist whose unique blend of country, hip-hop, and rock has earned him five GRAMMY nominations, over 35 million records sold worldwide, and a legion of fans. The season also includes chart-topping sensation Sheryl Crow; singer Kix Brooks, formerly of Brooks & Dunn—the highest-selling duo in country music history; influential ZZ Top axeman Billy Gibbons; and groundbreaking country queen Crystal Gayle, the first female country artist to have an album go platinum. Complete dates and additional guests will be announced at a later date.
“For over 60 years, Dan Rather has been one of the most respected names in journalism,” said Michele M. Dix, AXS TV’s senior vice president, programming and development. “His unprecedented ability to connect and get his subjects to candidly speak about their lives and careers adds a new depth to his interviews, giving viewers a chance to see a side of their favorite artists that isn’t often made visible to the public.”
