“The last 12 months have seen the COVID-19 pandemic harshly impact the lives and livelihoods of our Nashville music industry while completely stifling the live entertainment segment,” says MusicRow Publisher/Owner Sherod Robertson. “There has perhaps been no other time in our history when our industry’s leadership and talent have been more important in helping us navigate back to the success achieved prior to this deadly disease. The challenges have been enormous, but the talent in this issue is undeniable and provides assurance that our industry will continue to rise back up, and soar to even greater heights.”
In this issue of InCharge, MusicRow Magazine also celebrates the 40th anniversary of the publication by creating a beautifully woven timeline of MusicRow’s history. From the publications’ creation in April of 1981 as a one-page directory to the multi-format media presence that it holds in 2021, the timeline highlights MusicRow‘s milestone moments throughout its 40 years.
