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.

Speaker 1 (00:02):
I'm here with Nashville hit songwriters Charlotte Sales. It's been
a while since we had you on How you been
I'm good, I'm good. It's good to see you and
good to be back. I always love chatting with you, Shooter.
Last time you're here, we were talking about singles and
releases in the process. But this time there's a bit
of a black cloud hanging over music City right now. Yeah,
I mean, it seems to be the only thing everybody's

talking about with allegations of misconduct against one of us
rising stars. Is this truly a reckoning for country music?
How can this be happening? So? Is this just who
we are? Sometimes with songwriters you can get in our
way because of how personal it can be. I really
think it's gonna be good for you to write, Charlotte.

Just trust yourself, and I promise something great might just
come out of all. I'm just game. Tune into season
two of Making a Bus We go brand new storylines
and an original soundtrack featuring some of my favorite artists
and songwriters like Oh Kane bra and Nol Rogers, Tyler Ridge,
Liz Rose, and many more. You can make it up

as we go. You can find make it Up as
we Go on Serious x, m Apple, Stitcher or wherever
