Florida born but Nashville based, Maddie Lane, has been singing and performing from an early age. Born into a music-loving family she was exposed to an eclectic range of music from an early age. Drawn to the traditional country music her own writing has a unique bright feel, with lyrically driven storytelling with a mellow, laid back sound.
After a year in LA writing and performing whilst also attending the UCLA Film and Television Summer Institute, Maddie is now based in Nashville and a regular at songwriter circles and rounds frequenting venues like the Belcourt Tap and Live Oak on Music Row.
Her debut single “Country in You“ is out on Friday 25th September and describes a story about falling in love with a small town cowboy and lists all the things the singer has never done but which the new beaux has her thinking about! Inspired by his country ways, the singer wants all the adventures that come with his “smile and his worn out boots“! The production from OmniSound Studios on Music Row with Rory Rositas and Josh Emmons has a familiar country-pop feel with a traditional vibe – guitar led with mandolin and steel guitar. The production fades for the verses building into each chorus leading to the instrumental break before the final chorus reprise.

Maddie says, “Some of my favorite artists include Brooks & Dunn, The Chicks, and Tim McGraw. I fell in love with the stories they told and found myself wanting to be a part of them, as my upbringing was nothing like the lifestyle that is portrayed in most country songs.” She cites her influences as Fleetwood Mac, Taylor Swift and The Chicks. Certainly, her smooth rounded vocals on this track are reminiscent of an early Chicks sound.
Maddie is launching her single with a livestream Thursday 24th September on her Facebook and Instagram at 6pm Central Time prior to Friday’s release. Do join her and find out more about this up and coming talent and check out the country in her in her new release!
