"Current Music is thrilled to be there throughout the creative process for our clients like the Golf Channel," said CEO Maddie Madsen. "We aim to amplify our client's vision and to do so we have to be light on our toes and ready with top-notch talent whenever duty calls.

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.

But after filming in Las Vegas he knew he wanted something bluesy and gritty with a tough, rock edge.

In stepped Current Music, redirecting and coming up with the perfect tune by writers Laurent Lepagneau and Alex Astier of the amazing French alternative rock band Blondstone.

The two-night premiere airs Monday, April 9 and Tuesday, April 10 at 9:00 P.M. on Golf Channel. Shotmakers will feature the fun, social experience for which Topgolf is known, featuring TopTracer which shows players their ball's flight, speed, distance and curve on screen, teams will compete for cash and prizes in each competition and will be eliminated until one team is left standing as the champion of Shotmakers.

The theme song was produced by Christian Salyer, who worked closely with the Golf Channel team every step of the way, and arranged, composed and performed by Lepagneau and Astier.
Current has become an established resource for commissioned music for the film, television, advertising, digital content and corporate communities. Current Music's creative division now has multiple theme songs on major network broadcasts, as well as sonic branding IDs, scores, songs, parodies and re-records in use throughout the world.

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.
