Honest, humorous and emotional, each episode features a famous performer and their mother, alongside Dave and Virginia, as they take an impassioned journey home and explore each artists’ upbringing and the tools they received as a young talent to survive the turbulence of success.

Country music star Miranda Lambert shows Dave and Virginia Grohl around Lindale, Texas, where she grew up under the watchful eyes of her private investigator parents. When she decided to pursue a career in music, Miranda’s mom, Beverly, became her “mom-ager.”

Episode 4: "Brandi and Teresa Carlile"

Deep in the woods of the Pacific Northwest, Brandi Carlile and her mother Teresa open up to Dave and Virginia about Brandi’s trajectory from a tomboy kid who didn’t fit in to a multiple-Grammy Award-winning, openly gay singer-songwriter.

Episode 5: "Tom and Mary Morello"

Episode 6: "Geddy Lee and Mary Weinrib"

In Toronto, Dave and Virginia Grohl meet Rush frontman Geddy Lee and his mother Mary Weinrib, a strong and inspiring Holocaust survivor. In Los Angeles, Virginia gathers together a number of mothers of famous musicians for a once-in-a-lifetime dinner party reunion, where Dave and his daughter Violet perform.

The relationship between a mother and child is so important.  It is about love, trust, understanding and so much more.  I really enjoyed these episodes, listening to all the moms and seeing their stories come to life.  Remember that mothers are so important.  They are our best friends, they gave us life and without them we would be nothing and there would be no music from these famous musicians.
