Today we connect with songwriter and musician Thad Cockrell. Thad had spent two decades steadily building his career through five album releases and constant touring before the COVID-19 pandemic forced musicians, including Cockrell, off the road. Cockrell intended to end his music career and even emailed his managers letting them know; however, on Jan 4th, Thad got a phone call every musician dreams of - his management called with the news that he would be performing on one of the biggest late-night television shows, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon! In this episode, Thad tells us the incredible story of how the Tonight Show appearance came on the same day he decided to hang it up, what he's been up to lately, and much more.
