EDISON – Seventeen year old Madeline Smith, a rising country star and a local girl from Somerset, is set to sing the National Anthem at Edison’s upcoming Fall Family Spectacular on Saturday, Sept. 21.
Madeline Smith, raised in New Jersey, has a southern family background and grew up on country music, singing Patsy Cline and Johnny Cash. Her perfect pitch was discovered by her piano teacher at age ten. She then started taking voice lessons and then later guitar lessons. After picking up the guitar, Smith started immersing herself in songwriting.
Now that Smith is 17, she is chasing her dream with full force and loving every second of it. She has just completed her 10 song self entitled EP “Madeline Smith” in Nashville with Kent Wells Production (Dolly Parton’s producer). Within a 6 month period, Smith has opened up for Lauren Alaina and Darius Rucker, with her CD being played extensively on UK and US radio. A prolific songwriter, Smith is working with multiple established industry songwriters, performing with her band, and immersing herself in music.
Smith is currently touring New Jersey and the tri-state areas as well as aggressively building her fan base in the process.
Opening ceremonies for the Edison Fall Family Spectacular is set for 4:15 p.m. at Lake Papaianni, 100 Municipal Boulevard, Edison. For information, go to the festival website at www.edisonspectacular.org.
