Had a lovely time in my recent chat with writer and music journalist Madeline Crone. We dive into some of the current challenges within the music industry, specifically the country music scene, along with how Charley Crockett's insight into paving his own way through! Madeline shares her experience in navigating her own career path and how she ended up becoming a music journalist, writing for the likes of American Songwriter Magazine.

Hope you enjoy this episode!

Our segment two quotes to ponder as you're tuning in are below:

  • “It’s those ironies that you think about not before or after surgery, but forever. That shaped me. I can’t help but think how much of my fate, luck, or destiny I can’t control,” he admitted adding, “I don’t think I’m unique in feeling that especially in 2020. But what I can do is have the courage to change the things that I can control. And because I’ve done those things, that’s the only reason I can think of that I’m alive.” ~ Charley Crockett

  • “You can't change how people treat you or what they say about you. All you can do is change how you react to it.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi

  • If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. We need not wait to see what others do. ~ Mahatma Gandhi

Madeline's segment three shares are:

Band Together - Band Together is an amazing story full of hope, optimism, and a dose of rebellion. Band Together was imagined by Triangle community leaders as a response to the tragedies of September 11, 2001. The vision has evolved from raising funds to support international tragedies to raising funds and awareness with a special nonprofit partner every year. Thanks to the tireless efforts of thousands of volunteers, generous corporate and individual sponsors, dedicated board members, musicians, and the generosity of our community, Band Together has risen to be a powerful partner to nonprofits in the Triangle Area.

Band Together has donated over $10 million to benefit the Triangle community since 2001, strengthened corporate and non-profit relationships, supported musicians, and had a lot of fun along the way.

We are the Mullet. Business (and social good) in the front, party in the back.
