Her self-titled EP released on 28 January 2012 earned her two #1 hits on the Indie Country Charts, and she was also named #1 Worldwide Independent Artist by CMG. In 2014, she was selected as the UMA artist under 18. Her new album titled “Lightning Strikes”, produced by Brandon Metcalf and crew at Destiny Nashville, was released on 30 July 2015. As per her Facebook bio, 2015 Grammy winner for best album, Tom Coyne, mastered the album and wrote her a personal note that said “Great Album !!!” “Great Songs !!!”. All of the songs on the album were written, or co-written by Maddie. The bio on her official website reveals “Maddie titled her album ‘Lightning Strikes’ because her songs all say very bold things.” About the album, Maddie has commented, “You won’t hear a ton of sugar coating, and in life, I feel like we need to be bold more often.”
Maddie has performed live on television, XM radio, and on AM/FM radio. She has also performed hundreds of live shows both acoustically and with a full band.

She has licensing agreements with QVC, Bose, Priddis Music, Braven Audio, and she has been a finalist in two national songwriting competitions (Skirts, Echo).
Maddie has found that she absolutely loves to write songs. Also, she loves adding her own style to cover songs, and you may notice that she sometimes changes lyrics in them. She does this because she believes music is a gift from God. Maddie says, “I’m nowhere near perfect, but I try my best every day to use my gift the way He would want. In this day and age, it’s hard NOT to hear a song without curse words or an inappropriate meaning. I realize that some of my changed lyrics might not be totally necessary, but my policy is “it’s better to be safe than sorry.” Fans can listen to some of the tracks of Maddie’s songs on her ReverbNation page, and they can support her music through Patreon.
Maddie, a small town girl with country roots and Christian values, uses her music, online presence, and influence for good, and she is making a positive difference. She loves her yellow dog, riding horses and motorbikes, hanging-out with family and friends, and is admittedly addicted to ice cream! She is a little quirky, extremely talented, and a lot of fun!
