Make It Up As We Go S2 - Episode 4
Charlotte and Marshall return to Nashville, where Charlotte’s name is quickly gaining traction as an emerging act. The Carmelina boardrooms echo with differing opinions on the best way forward. Elliot digs in when they tell him he’s in over his head, and claims he can handle every aspect of her career, but Marshall and Charlotte take meetings with other publishing companies and major label A&R’s anyway. One of the songs Charlotte wrote at the camp gets cut by a big artist who’s rough around the edges, but the single comes out of the gate hot. Before they meet him in the studio, Marshall warns Charlotte about his reputation around women, but Charlotte insists she can handle herself. The session is rough, he’s creepy and disrespectful, but Charlotte sees it through. With attention growing and paperwork looming, Charlotte seeks advice from Emily and Miranda on record deals, touring, and management, and Miranda invites her to come to one of her Texas tour dates. We see Charlotte facing the big question of season two: do I want to be a songwriter or an artist?

At an unsightly reunion, the skeletons in the Tracy family closet are paraded through the devastated Shreveport streets. His struggling parents, their dysfunctional marriage, and the younger brother he left behind to deal with it all take a heavy emotional toll on Marshall. While he is forced to reconcile his past and present, Charlotte is tested professionally and emotionally amongst the best and brightest songwriters in Texas.
