One of Nashville’s fastest-rising and most critically acclaimed young stars, Morgan Wade (Alternative Country) released her much-anticipated sophomore album, Psychopath, Aug. 25 via Sony Music Nashville. Possessed with a raw and unflinching voice anchored by a perfect tinge of twang; the rare ability to pen honest portraits of some of life’s most precious and painful and unpredictable moments; and an onstage vulnerability that so seamlessly breaks down the wall between fan and artist, Wade has quickly made her mark on the country music scene—and the music world at large. Her stunning 2021 debut album, Reckless, was hailed as a critical triumph; it topped Rolling Stone’s Best Country and Americana Albums of 2021, with New York Times noting Wade “sounds like she’s singing from the depths of history.” In 2022, Wade was nominated as the Emerging Act of the Year at the Americana Music Honors & Awards; in 2023, Wade was nominated for New Female Artist of the Year by the Academy of Country Music and performed at major-market festivals including Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits.

While Reckless, and particularly its momentous lead single “Wilder Days,” busted down the doors and introduced Wade to a wider listenership, Psychopath is an astounding follow-up statement: the 13-track LP was crafted with the help of some of Nashville’s most extraordinary musical talents, from A-list songwriters (Julia Michaels, Natalie Hemby, Liz Rose, Lori McKenna) to studio musicians as well as Wade’s longtime producer Sadler Vaden. Most excitingly, Psychopath finds Wade peeling back layers of her psyche like never before. “I realized the more authentic you are and the more you pour yourself into your songs, and most importantly if you’re being honest, people will connect to that,” Wade says. “I want every song to get the credit it deserves.”

Also featuring: Madeline Edwards (Country Soul)

"The 29-year-old performer is cresting a fast-rising wave of acclaim and claiming her place as a thoughtful singer-songwriter in country's mainstream." – The Tennessean

Since breaking onto the scene at the 55th CMA Awards, Madeline Edwards has experienced a remarkable rise, performing on some of the genre's biggest stages and earning widespread accolades. Featured on the Spotify "Hot Country Artists to Watch" and CMT's "Next Women of Country" lists, Edwards was also selected as a Top 20 Breaker artist on NPR. Her Opry debut earlier this year was lauded as one of the "best of all time" (Country Living), and she was recently featured as Billboard's Rookie Of The Month and an Apple Music Country Riser. In a recent profile for The Tennessean, Edwards was noted for "cresting a fast-rising wave of acclaim and claiming her place as a thoughtful singer-songwriter in country's mainstream."

The California-born, Texas-raised artist is noted for her unique ability to transcend musical boundaries and blend of jazz, soul, gospel and country music. Her initial five song EP, released in June 2022, featured Edwards' "captivating" (Music Row) single "Port City," where "Edwards lends her pure siren of a voice to a retelling of her own journey to Nashville" as well as well as her breakout hit, "The Road."

Edwards released her highly anticipated debut album, Crashlanded, with Warner Music Nashville on November 4. The 12-song project was "designed for people embracing not just the journey, but their power," she notes. "The hardest thing wasn't what was going on the record, but the order. I still believe in albums — and the cohesion of how songs hold together. We spent months going over the order, because I wanted people to feel all of it."

With the release of Crashlanded, Edwards continues to solidify her place in Nashville. In addition to opening for Chris Stapleton's All American Road Show tour, Edwards brought her show to SXSW as one of Rolling Stone's "Best of…" She also performed at The Long Road Festival in the UK as well as Moon River Festival and Americana Fest.
