*** We'd like to preface these interviews with the recordings were done in a metal box without a lot of help from the walls and might not be 100% podcast quality, but the content is definitely epic ***
The Texas music scene was the first for Madeline Edwards, getting the experience under her belt. She traveled back and forth from Houston to Nashville “figuring it out”. She met her husband during covid… they decided to pack it up and make the move to Nashville!
Her love of the females in country music from Kassi Ashton to Lainey Wilson. I asked about the goal in country music for herself, someone she looked up to in the genre… the response is epic! It’ll make you love her even more!
I asked about building her own show… money not a thing and her line up includes the likes of Harry Styles, Billy Joel, The Black Keys and even the Arctic Monkeys.
Her love for Star Wars, being the oldest of 5 kids, tattoos in honor of them. She is female first and this is enlightening.
Another album on the way… it was a good question that wasn’t expected and that’s rad! Let’s hope by the end of the year!
