Madeline Edwards announced that she will be dropping her debut album, Crashlanded, on Nov 4 via her new label home, Warner Music Nashville. In celebration of this exciting news, she gave fans a taste of this next chapter of music with the release of her track, “Too Much Of A Good Thing.”
The singer was inspired to write her powerful new song the night she found out that she would be heading on tour in support of Chris Stapleton’s All-American Road Show this summer.
“I wrote with two incredible writers in Nashville-Ian Christian and Trannie Anderson, the day after I found out…this song is everything I have felt …and how grateful I feel for all of it,” she shared in a press release.
Edwards continues her thread of stirring melodies with “Too Much Of A Good Thing” as she musters up every bit of strength from her tender vocals and pours it into the compelling tune. This release is also accompanied by a music video that captured a compilation of highlight moments of Edwards’ friends, family, band, and crew over the last few months.
According to the singer, her full-length 12-song project has been in the works for only a few years, but to her, it feels like it has taken “almost a lifetime” for it to get out into the world.
“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,” said Edwards. “I’m very excited for this new venture with Warner and having a partner coming alongside that respects and sees my vision for the music. We’re about to go to the moon and it feels surreal.”
She has already shared the first single off her debut album, “The Wolves,” in which she faces fear head on and never looks back.
“I ain’t scared of nothing, scared of nothing / Scared of nothing / I ain’t ever running, never running / Never running / Pick up my pride / I’m ready to fight / I’m seeing red, I’m in control / So, go ahead and throw me to the wolves,” Edwards sings in the taunting chorus.
This collection will follow her self-titled EP, which was released this June and featured the fan-favorite, “Port City.” This track allows her audience to understand where she comes from as Edwards digs into her roots and revisits her youth and the high expectations she set for herself and her career back then.
Born in California and raised in Texas, Edwards would have made her younger self proud as she reaches new heights in her career. She’s found herself touring with country music biggest names and garnering nearly 15 million collective streams.
Opening for Chris Stapleton’s All American Road Show, left Edwards feeling grateful that she had the opportunity to learn from one of country music’s finest.
“[Chris Stapleton] challenged my perception of what it means to be the best. He puts so much work into his craft, but he also perfectly balances that with still making time for family,” she previously told The Tennessean.
Madeline Edwards’ next performance is set to take place in York, PA on Oct. 8.
