Madeline Merlo, not only is a CCMA Rising Star award winner, a BCCMA Female Artist of the Year award winner (both in 2015), she is also the winner of the Season Two premiere of the NBC hit show Songland, where her song “Champagne Night” was chosen to be recorded and digitally released by seven-time GRAMMY® Award-winning group Lady A as an official single. On top of that, she released three original singles on April 24 to Canadian country radio, including her personal favourite of the trio, “Kiss Kiss.”
Says Merlo about the single “Kiss Kiss,”
“This song is about one broken-hearted person finding another broken- hearted person. It’s about pretending to be in love. It’s about how we get through it. This song is phase one of heartbreak. ‘We’ll say it’s more than just a weekend rebound, it’s a lie but it’s a good one right now.’”

On Monday, August 3, as a CMT exclusive, her video for “Kiss Kiss” came out. It’s released everywhere else on August 4. The vibe of this video shows the dangerous yet sexy side of post-ex rebounds. In this video, Merlo causes you to feel the feels that go with the classic get-over-him/her and helps you make real that its outcome is part of the healing process.
Hi all. I’m Nanci Dagg. I am from Winnipeg, Manitoba, and have lived my entire life here. There is nothing I like better than supporting local artists followed by supporting Canadian artists. Although I was a classic rock gal, my go to genre is country. Something about this music that just makes me feel great. I can be found at most country music concerts and shows (from someone’s house to really large venues) taking lots of pictures. Music and photography are two of my passions. Add to this mix, writing about artists, well let’s say, life doesn’t get better than this.
