Makin’ Music: “No Going Back” 


There will be “No Going Back” Friday and Saturday, April 8-9, 2022, when Freed-Hardeman University students take the Loyd Auditorium stage for the 45th annual production of Makin’ Music. 


After COVID-19 forced Makin’ Music to go virtual with a limited in-person audience the last two years, in 2022 this time-honored rite of spring will be watched in person only. The three weekend performances will be Friday at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Tickets may be purchased at


Five student groups: Chi Beta Chi, Phi Kappa Alpha, Sigma Rho, Xi Chi Delta and an independent group will perform original songs and choreography at the three weekend shows before awards are presented Saturday night. A team of hosts and hostesses, emcees and the Makin’ Music Show Band will entertain the audience between the competitive entries. 


Hundreds of students will participate in the show as staff or cast members. The 2022 Makin’ Music hosts and hostesses are Brooks Jackson, a senior Bible major from Florence, Alabama; Josh Grooms, a junior Bible major from Duncan, South Carolina; Brooke Roberts, a junior biology major from Knoxville, Tennessee; Mallory Hollaway, a senior elementary education major from Muscle Shoals, Alabama; Kaitlyn Moore, a sophomore nursing major from Henderson, Tennessee, and Maggie Nash, a senior psychology major from Jackson, Tennessee. 


The two emcees for the show are Bri Crosby, a senior child and family science major from Valdosta, Georgia, and Lincoln Shotts, a junior public relations major from Meridianville, Alabama. The voice of Makin’ Music is Lucy Johnson, a senior math major from Pinson, Tennessee. The student coordinator is Suzanna Grady, a senior biochemistry major from Murray, Kentucky.
