Despite growing up a small town in British Columbia, Madeline Merlo always knew she wanted to be bonefide Country Music star–and her dream is quickly becoming reality. After being signed to Open Road Recordings in 2013, and releasing her self-titled debut album in 2014, Madeline was quickly recognized as an artist to watch. Her singles ‘Sinking Like a Stone’ and ‘Alive’ became popular on country radio and TV alike, garnering her nominations for Female Artist of the Year and the Ray McCauley Horizon award at the 2014 BCCMAs.
Fresh off her Rising Star award nomination from Canadian Country Music Association, Madeline is now ready to hit the road and wow audiences across Canada with superstars Dean Brody and Paul Brant during their Road Trip Tour this fall. You’ll also find Madeline featured in Sparkle: An inspirational Handbook for Young Girls and can watch for her in the upcoming musical movie ‘Country Crush’ due out in later this year. One thing is for sure - this Country starlet is on the rise!
