Warner Music Nashville recording artist Madeline Edwards made her Today Show debut this morning, November 2nd, with a performance of fan-favorite single, “The Wolves” (WATCH HERE). The track will be featured on her debut album, Crashlanded, available everywhere this Friday, November 4th (PRE-ORDER/SAVE).
Written by Edwards, Emma Lee and Gavin Slate, and produced by Ryan Tyndell and Oscar Charles, “The Wolves” is one of twelve tracks Edwards co-wrote for the upcoming project. In addition to “The Wolves,” Crashlanded includes “Too Much Of A Good Thing” (LISTEN HERE) – inspired by and written the evening she found out she was selected to go on tour with Chris Stapleton – as well as previously released tracks “Why I’m Calling” and “Hold My Horses” (full track list below). In addition to visiting the Today Show, Edwards will return to perform at The Grand Ole Opry on Friday (11/4), where earlier this year she was lauded for having the “best (Opry debut) of all time” (Country Living).
In an interview with Billboard, Edwards shared, “This particular album may have been in the works over the last couple years, but for me to get to this point and put out this kind of body of work has taken almost a lifetime. I’m very excited for everyone to hear the stories, the musical influences, the time and the experience that has brought me to this moment. Crashlanded feels like my child.”
Since breaking onto the scene on the CMA Award Stage a year ago, Edwards’ remarkable rise and noteworthy impression has led to performances on some of the genre’s biggest stages and inclusions on Spotify's “Hot Country Artists to Watch,” CMT’s “Next Women of Country,” as well as her selection as a Top 20 Breaker artist on NPR. Selected as Billboard’s August Rookie Of The Month and an Apple Music August Country Riser, her music has garnered additional raves from Billboard, Southern Living, American Songwriter, CMT, NPR and more. In a recent profile in The Tennessean, Edwards was noted for “cresting a fast-rising wave of acclaim and claiming her place as a thoughtful singer-songwriter in country's mainstream.” (The Tennessean).
Edwards has received notable acclaim for her unique ability to transcend musical boundaries with a one-of-a-kind sound that blends jazz, soul, gospel and country music. Her initial five song EP was released in June 2022 and featured Edwards’ “captivating” (Music Row) single “Port City” where she “lends her pure siren of a voice to a retelling of her own journey to Nashville” as well as “Hold My Horses,” “Why I’m Calling,” “Heart You Can’t Break,” and “The Road.” In addition to opening for Chris Stapleton’s “All American Road Show” this Summer, Edwards brought her show to SXSW as one of Rolling Stone’s Best of and performed at Long Road Festival in UK, Moon River Festival and Americana Fest.
