Mike McVay | People Of Country Music
One of the first incredibly inspiring music industry professionals I met over 7 years ago at CRS (Country Radio Seminar) was this man, Mike McVay. Throughout the years, Mike has always been so incredibly supportive of me and growing my photography business in Nashville. I remember saying something like, “I’m going to become Nashville’s Country Music Photographer!” Now, a couple of years later, Mike said to me, “I’m proud to see where you’ve taken your business in just a few short years.”
When starting this podcast series, interviewing people that have a really inspiring story to tell, Mike was one of the first people who came to mind. I knew that Mike has worked in radio and been an influencer to so many musicians throughout his career, but I did not know the extent of his awesomeness! I cannot wait for you to listen into this interview with Mike McVay!
If you’re an artist, you’ll love hearing about how Mike mentored musicians from Reba McEntire to John Oats. If you’re in radio programming or hosting, you’ll love the story of how Mike began working in radio at just fifteen years old. If you’re not in music, you’ll be amazed at Mike’s business sense and entrepreunrial drive – you’ll learn about qualities of a great leader and motivational speaker.
Thank you for having me interview you, Mike McVay! I’m proud of where you’ve come and honored you shared your story with me on this episode of People Of Country Music.
**make sure to watch all the way through to the end – there’s a special surprise featuring a few of my favorites also in radio, Chuck Wicks, Kelly Ford and Ty Bentli. See if you can also spot the small cameo by my friend, Robin Meade 😉
Leave comments below! I’d love to hear your feedback and also send any questions you might have back to Mike to answer!
