In 2017, Dave Grohl and his mother, Virginia, published From Cradle to Stage: Stories from the Mothers Who Rocked and Raised Rock Stars, a book about precisely what its name suggests — and starting on May 6, From Cradle to Stage will stream on Paramount+ as a six-part series.

It’s the latest high-profile announcement from the Foo Fighters figurehead, who directed a new documentary about a musician’s life on the road, What Drives Us, premiering on April 30 and has an official memoir coming out in October.

A Live Nation Productions project, the new series features famous entertainers including Brandi Carlile, Miranda Lambert, Geddy Lee of Rush, Tom Morello, Dan Reynolds of Imagine Dragons, and Pharrell Williams, appearing with their mothers, with Deadline referring to the series as a dynamic personal exploration of the special relationship between successful musicians and their moms.

In each episode, the chosen performers of the hour (and Mom), joined by Dave and Virginia, go back home to discuss the path that took them to where they are today. Here’s the schedule of episodes, per Deadline:

● May 6: Dan Reynolds (of Imagine Dragons) and Christene Reynolds

● May 13: Pharrell and Dr. Carolyn Williams

● May 20: Miranda and Bev Lambert

● May 27: Brandi and Teresa Carlile

● June 3: Tom Morello (of Rage Against the Machine) and Mary Morello

● June 10: Geddy Lee (of Rush) and Mary Weinrib

“I believe that the relationship between a musician and their mother is so important because it’s the foundation of their understanding of love, which is surely every artist’s greatest muse,” said Grohl. “Having the opportunity to travel the country and tell the stories of these amazing women behind the curtain not only shed some light on the music that they inspired, but also made me appreciate the love that I was given from my own mother, my best friend. It goes without saying that we are all indebted to the women who have given us life. For without them, there would be no music.”
