Producing a hit TV show is no easy feat and with so much competition, the right theme song can make a huge difference.
Executive Producer Keith Allo knows this and that’s why he didn’t hesitate to change direction midstream for the Golf Channel’s latest offering, Shotmakers. At first he was looking for something “epic, propulsive, that built to a triumphant ending” for the groundbreaking show where precision shotmaking meets intense strategy in a fast-paced format. Current submitted several choices that were being considered, but after filming in Las Vegas, Keith knew he wanted something bluesy and gritty with a tough, rock edge.
Current Music pivoted and came up with the perfect tune by team members and writers Laurent Lepagneau and Alex Astier, of the amazing French alternative rock band Blondstone. Christian Salyer produced, working closely with Golf Channel’s team every step of the way.
The nine co-ed teams include a former PGA TOUR professional, mini-tour professional golfers, an Olympian, former collegiate athletes, a former World No.1 Long Drive competitor, a trick-shot artist, decorated military veterans, and champions from the TopGolf Tour.
Shotmakers will feature seven rounds of competition airing two nights a week- Monday and Tuesday nights – at 9 p.m. The series will also be distributed across Golf’s international platforms, airing in more than 60 countries worldwide.
