Madonna Nash, winner of the prestigious title “Female Country Artist of the Year” at the 2010 Carolina Music Awards, has now been asked to return to the annual awards show as Host of the 2011 event.
“As a child, I used to do shows in my backyard for all the other neighborhood kids,” said the Wilmington, NC native. “Then I moved on to the big time “wink”, playing and singing in my daddy’s bar. It wasn’t until my teen years that I got into songwriting.”
Nash comes from a very musical family. Her father toured the country playing guitar, and her mother was an honors graduate in music from E.C.U. Nash’s great great uncle was Connie B. Gay, founding president of the Country Music Association.
She has performed with numerous popular acts such as Gretchen Wilson, Phil Vassar, Josh Thompson, Sarah Buxton, Jason Michael Carroll, Cravin’ Melon, Gloriana, Lee Brice, Danny Gokey, Edwin McCain, and more.
Madonna Nash’s self-titled debut album was recorded in Nashville, TN using a Grammy-winning team of studio engineers and musicians who have worked with such superstars as Taylor Swift, Tim McGraw, Reba McEntire, Darius Rucker, Dierks Bentley, and Kellie Pickler. Working with producers Dave Demay and Charles Fulp (producer of multiple Top 20 BILLOARD singles), the album is a blood pumping surge of New Country at its finest.
The new album is now available on iTunes and Amazon.com, and it is already receiving rave reviews (6 out of 7 stars in the Nashville Music Guide). Madonna Nash’s debut single “Dirty Little Secret” is a winner of the prestigious DISCOVERY award in MusicRow magazine, and the video for this single is equally impressive. Nash recorded 13 songs for the album, all of which she wrote/co-wrote.
