Young Country Artist Makes Musical Introduction
With Intimate Personal Memoirs
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (April 11, 2013)—Recording artist Madison McKenzie,
a uniquely gifted singer, songwriter and performer from the fertile
farmlands of western Illinois, makes her footprint in the country music
genre with her debut album entitled A PART OF ME.** The musical composition (produced by Bob Bullock of Shania Twain, Reba McEntire, George Strait and George Jones fame) comes from her own independent label, Madi M Music, and is set for a May 28, 2013 release via all major Internet retail outlets.
McKenzie’s music is an expression—of faith, youth, confidence, soul,
and most of all, her love for God’s creations. Captivating listeners
with a sweet sophisticated sincerity, Madison’s creative and
contemporary delivery of “her kind of country” is deeply rooted in her
respect for the all-American music tradition and her belief and devotion
to God and family. Like pages from a personal diary, the subject matter
is true to her being, encompassing friends, family, love and death.
With five songs penned by McKenzie (“Run,” “Give Me A Reason,” “This Is My Life,” “Me And You,” and “That Is The Truth”),
the eleven-song CD is truly a window to her soul. Encompassing
thoughtful, heartfelt ballads, and playful and engaging upbeat tunes, A PART OF ME
showcases her talented breadth as a storyteller and a pure vocalist.
Offering a “wise-beyond-her-youth” perspective, the arrangement “My Friend,”
(McKenzie/Nate Jackson) is a snapshot of a friendship with a “distant”
future before them and the reminder to cherish every last moment. The
classic fiddle threaded through the southern strung piano paints a
picture of happy nostalgia to live in the present while separation looms
inevitable. Madison’s fluttering vocals take center stage in “Waiting On Your Love” (McKenzie/Mariah
Lung/Megan Redmond) while layers of elevating crescendos of soft
electric guitar roll leisurely—a song about chasing after love even if
project is honest, but that’s just who I am; it’s “part of me” and I
hope listeners have an appreciation for my sincerity,”

with Phonological Processing Disorder (a communicative condition
lengthening the processing and relaying of sounds and information) at an
elementary age, Madison quietly and courageously overcame the hurdles
before her with music as her instrument to serve as a newfound voice.
Translating genuine feelings from pen to paper, to a musical expression,
Madison writes from a place that’s within and displays an array of
emotion that boasts all the colors of a rainbow. Her testimony reveals
truthfulness in age yet a maturity that’s “lived-in.”
“I used to be hesitant and less confident, but my music has helped me to grow in so many ways,” added Madison. “I
want to be able to use my music to make a lasting impression on others,
to help them overcome obstacles when they might feel helpless or alone
and be an artist people can look up to.”
in Camp Point (with a population of only 1,200), this beautiful
blue-eyed, seventeen-year-old sensation sings true to her rural farm
lifestyle. As the middle-child centered between her four siblings in a
musically inclined family, Madison is no stranger to hard work and play.
She is a young road warrior who travels to and from Music City to
concentrate on her endeavor to become a career artist. Promoters and
venues have acknowledged Madison’s talents; she is a seasoned performer
who has appeared at concert events across the country including numerous
fairs and festivals, Nashville’s Country Music Walk of Fame and NASCAR
