Country up-and-comer Madeline Merlo released a trio of new tunes today, including “If You Never Broke My Heart,” “It Didn’t,” and Canadian country radio single “Kiss Kiss.” Produced by GRAMMY® Award-nominated Jeff Pardo (“Kiss Kiss” and “It Didn’t”) and Brad Hill (“If You Never Broke My Heart”), all three songs were co-written by Merlo, along with Pardo and Allison Veltz Cruz (“Kiss Kiss”), Pardo and Jason Blaine (“It Didn’t”) and Marla Morris and Grant Vogel (“If You Never Broke My Heart”).
“These three songs complete the heartbreak circle story I’m trying to tell. They are products of my journey over these last couple years writing songs, losing love and learning about life here in Nashville,” said Merlo of the new music. “I think they are examples of the multitude of emotions you experience going through heartbreak and ending up on the other side: from reckless behavior, to perspective shifts, to closure.”
The Canadian native kicked off her U.S. career in a big way last week, winning the season premiere of the hit NBC show “Songland” – during which 7-time GRAMMY® Award-winning group Lady Antebellum chose to record and release Merlo’s “Champagne Night.”
