Interning with SiriusXM’s The Highway has already been a whirlwind adventure. Right from the start, I was put in to the action! With the holiday season coming up, we are all busy preparing for our Country Christmas Channel to launch and take a temporary home on Prime Country! Preparing for this means having artists come in, who are releasing Christmas albums in the studio to record what we call “Hangtimes.”
One of my first “Hangtimes” that I got to participate in was with Blake Shelton! Not only did I get to work with him by manning the board, and monitoring mic levels. It truly was an experience to work with not only a current celebrity in the public eye, but one of my favorite artists!
Since then I have been apart of in house concerts, number one parties, press conferences, and award shows. I have also had the opportunity to work with other artists like Scotty McCreery, Lady A, Gary Allen, Brantley Gilbert, to name a few.
Only being a few weeks in to this internship, I already know that it will be hard to leave when its over. The SiriusXM crew down here is so welcoming, always willing to help each other out on any project, and answer any questions! I have learned so much in so little time, I know that I would never get this experience any where else.
