On the heels of receiving her first official Music Canada-certified Gold record with single “Neon Love,” artist Madeline Merlo released an acoustic version of her song “If You Never Broke My Heart” yesterday (8/26) – the tune is now available everywhere digitally. An acoustic video to support the track is due out in early September. “If You Never Broke My Heart” was originally released as a trio of songs, which included Merlo’s “It Didn’t” and her current single “Kiss Kiss,” in April.

The Canadian-native caught U.S. attention when she won the season premiere of NBC’s Songland season two – during which her song “Champagne Night” was chosen by 7-time GRAMMY® Award-winning group Lady A, who recorded and released the song digitally and to country radio. “Champagne Night” is currently at Top 30 on the Media Base and Billboard Country Airplay charts.
As an artist, Merlo’s cool, coastal sound – a reflection of her Vancouver upbringing – bridges the perfect pop-country gap. After a series of successful single releases in Canada – including debut “Sinking Like A Stone,” “War Paint,” “Whatcha Wanna Do About It,” “Neon Love,” and her most recent Canadian country radio Top 10 “Dear Me” – Merlo released “Kiss Kiss” to Canadian country radio. The single is currently Top 20 on the Canadian country radio Media Base charts, recently hit #2 on the Radio Disney Country chart, and has amassed nearly 2 million global streams.
