Love Like Theirs - Maddie Wilson
For our next LCM featured artist we head to Provo, Utah the home of young Country singer-songwriter Maddie Wilson. Maddie has just released her beautifully written, personal new single and our LCM #TrackOfTheDay 'Love Like Theirs' written for her parents anniversary.
Maddie Wilson’s soulful country-crossover style wins new fans wherever she performs, whether a high-energy live concert or a one-of-a-kind music video. After just a song or two, you’ll understand why the Nashville Songwriters Association International recently named Maddie “one to watch.”
From the beginning, Maddie’s talents have turned heads. Two of the tracks from Maddie’s 2012 self-titled EP hit number one on the Indie Country Charts and Maddie was named the #1 international indie artist that year by CMG Global Radio. In 2014, Maddie won “Best Artist Under 18” at the Utah Music Awards, an especially meaningful honor since she hails from Provo.
Maddie’s 2015 release, “Lightning Strikes,” mixed her distinctly country sensibility with elements of alternative rock, pop and soul. Like her debut EP, the album includes only tracks Maddie wrote or co-wrote. The album’s breakout single “Echo” earned her a place as a finalist in the 2015 USA Songwriting competition. Her writing talents also earned her a place as a finalist in the International Songwriting Competition.
An experienced live performer, Maddie has shared the stage with artists including Chris Young, Lonestar, Imagine Dragons, Danielle Bradbery and Lindsey Stirling. She has also created a thriving online fan base through her YouTube channel, where she is known for covers of pop music with a country flair, and her warm and active social media presence. You may have heard Maddie’s music on Spotify, Pandora, satellite and traditional radio, or in a television appearance.
