Monet Maddux & The Mission

Wednesday • May 27 • 6:30 pm • Chevy Stage

Monet Maddux may be a relative newcomer to the performing singer-songwriter playing field, but there’s no mistaking her for a “” Although the Alabama native didn’t begin writing songs, singing and learning guitar until well into adulthood (when she already had a family and two very successful businesses including an award-winning Harley Davidson dealership under her belt), Maddux’s passion for words and music has informed her entire life: from the hours she’d spend as a little girl escaping to her “happy place” writing poetry and stories in her notebooks to the 14 years and counting that she’s co-owned (with her guitar-playing husband, Scott Maddux) The Shed Smokehouse & Jukejoint, which has brought many of the biggest names in Americana and roots rock to their beloved adopted hometown of Maryville, Tennessee. As for why it took her so long to begin composing and singing her own songs, well, just chalk it up to her unabashed awe for the art form and respect for those who created it for a living.
