Welcome back! On our last episode, we had the pleasure of speaking with Jeff McMahon, ACM Award-nominated keyboardist and longtime touring and recording partner with Tim McGraw! It was from him that we learned about Maddye Trew!
Maddye has recently hit the music scene, wowing everyone with her sparkly and spunky attitude and incredible country singing. Jeff, who is now a devoted member of Maddye’s team, says “I love, LOVE her singin’. She’s so good, so soulful … and so real, which is refreshing. She knows who she is and what music she wants to make, and it was a thrill to play on this track with her.”
Coming on the heels of her debut release, “Only Sometimes,” the attention-getting featured performance of her cover of Patty Loveless’ “Chains” with Country Rebel, and recent opportunities to perform alongside established artists including Darryl Worley, Wade Hayes, and Jim Brown, the light is starting to shine on Maddye and it’s only getting brighter! AND she just released “That’s The Lonely Talkin’," which is available on all platforms! You can even see it on YouTube!
For a bit of info Maddye, was born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee, and began performing at a very young age. She sang “Walkin’ After Midnight” at the historic Strand Theatre at the age of ten, took on numerous roles in a variety of high school theater and musical productions while a student at Tipton Rosemark Academy, and eventually headed to Nashville to earn her Bachelor of Arts degree in commercial music from Belmont University. Since graduating, Trew has worked to hone her skills as a singer-songwriter and celebrated her first release, “Only Sometimes,” in December of 2020.
Since then, Maddye has been invited to share her songs at the historic Listening Room as well as other Nashville hotspots including The Local, Belcourt Taps, the Moxy Nashville, and Honeytree Meadery. Trew has also served as an opening act at the legendary Nashville Palace, and earlier this summer, she had the opportunity to join several artists including headliner Trace Adkins for the celebrated Memorial Day Mulefest concert event in Columbia, TN.
Maddye has a bright future ahead of her, and we hope that you will join us on this Casa DeConfidence Podcast episode and welcome Maddye with open arms!
