Award-winning songwriter and Songland winner Madeline Merlo channels her love of 90s country into her latest single “Tim + Faith” via BBR Music Group/Wheelhouse Records. Infused with the warm feeling of unwavering love, the melodious ode and moving tribute pays homage to the era of country music that launched superstars Tim McGraw and Faith Hill and solidified the devoted marriage between country music’s power couple.
“‘Tim + Faith’ is a song that pulls from my love of 90s Country music, and combines it with the feeling of everlasting love,” said Merlo. “I got married last year and one thing my husband and I say to each other all the time is ‘It’s always you & me.’ That line, along with getting to be a small part of Cole Swindell’s ‘Heads Carolina’ last year, inspired me to pay homage to one of my favorites, ‘It’s Your Love,’ with this song.”
“Tim + Faith” promises to be a captivating addition to Madeline Merlo’s repertoire, known for her authentic storytelling and powerful vocals. With this tribute, she not only honors the music legends but also showcases her own talents as a rising star in the country music scene. “Tim + Faith” speaks to the enduring love story of Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, two icons who have not only shaped the country music landscape but also set an example of navigating a relationship in the spotlight. Madeline Merlo’s soulful vocals combined with poignant lyrics beautifully encapsulate the essence of their legendary and aspirational bond and support for each other.
Having “already proven her songwriting chops” (Billboard), Merlo has “long made a career by telling big emotional stories in the span of 3 minute or so songs” (American Songwriter). Similar to her critically acclaimed label-debut EP, Slide, that scored her praise from Billboard, E! News, PopCulture, Music Row and more, Merlo continues to build her niche as a songwriter and artist, as she brings to life powerful female stories, from budding romances, to growing up and to the lessons learned in-between. “…Ready to make her name and talent known in the American country music landscape” (Country Swag), the “rising country star’s” (People) newest project “Tim + Faith” is out now.
