How Country Stars Build Their Road Crews

CMA Close Up/CMA/ Nashville, TN -- By Mark Crawford
Country Music wouldn’t be where it is today without great artists. But those stars couldn’t grow their audiences without virtuoso road crews. In many ways, the road crew is just as important a part of the tour as the performer. As Chris Cagle put it, “Everyone is pretty much part of the band. We’re all in it together. If the front-house guy has a bad day, no matter how well the band plays, we suck. If the monitor engineer is off, we can’t hear ourselves play and we’re off. Everybody is vital. We’re all part of the team.
