Make It Up As We Go

Make It Up As We Go

Following the death of her beloved father, Charlotte returns to her home state of Texas. Stricken with grief, and pulled in countless directions, Charlotte decides to attend legendary country songwriter, Liz Rose’s, writing retreat in Hill Country. Her experience writing at the Wayside Ranch pushes Charlotte to reach a turning point in her career. She pursues a deal with a big publishing company, and fights to balance work with her relationship with Marshall, seeking harmony between emotional stability and professional independence. Right when everything seems to be looking up, Charlotte is tested again, as the reverberations of “cancel culture” behind the scenes in the Nashville songwriting world are exposed, bringing to light the complexities of fame and fortune in Music City. Season 2 of Make It Up As We Go releases May 3rd from Audio Up and SiriusXM

For 20 years, Sarah Delashmit told people around her that she had cancer, muscular dystrophy, and other illnesses. She used a wheelchair and posted selfies from a hospital bed. She told friends and coworkers she was trapped in abusive relationships, or that she was the mother of children who had died. It was all a con. Sympathy was both her great need and her powerful weapon. But unlike most scams, she didn’t want people’s money. She was after something far more valuable.
