Thank you!!! What winning a Grand Prize and Lennon Award in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest means to me.

Hey Fanily!

Just want to thank you all so much for voting for "Fascinated" in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest. It won a Lennon Award!! Wahoo!!! When I won the Grand Prize for the country category in Session II, I was very very honoured! But winning a Lennon Award is extra special because it was YOU who helped me win. 

This is a huge blessing, because now "Fascinated" is in the last stage of the contest: Song of The Year! One song will be chosen and the winner will get a $20,000 cash prize.... That would help me out a TON cause I'm kind of sort of broke... Pursuing music as a career can be really expensive. I'm constantly scraping for money to record new songs and travel back and forth to Nashville. It's tough! Most artists don't make enough money. It takes a lot of work (and money) and luck to break through.

You might not know this about me, but I took a break from school this past year, to just work and save money so that I could make this big trip to Nashville (I'm in Nashville right now for 5 months). You see... money can't buy happiness but it can buy plane tickets to Nashville and recording sessions and guitars... And all of those things make me happy!! The longer I can financially sustain this journey to the top, the longer I can put out great music for you to listen to! So cross your fingers that "Fascinated" wins Song of The Year!!

As always, your support means the world to me. I'm so glad I have a little community to share my music and my experiences with. Hope to make you all very proud one day! 

Hugs and besos,

Maddy

Fascinated (country) on Canadian Radio and up for a #LennonAward

Maddy_radio_thx_image_Fascinated_April_2015Hey there fanily, I'm not great at blogging. I love Instagram though. Follow me there by the way at @maddyrodriguezmusic (https://instagram.com/maddyrodriguezmusic) :)

Having said that, I thought I'd write this quick blog post to thank all the radio stations in Canada that have added my song Fascinated to their playlists and rotation. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! It's no secret in the music industry that it's very, very hard to get songs on the radio, no matter how good the songs are, if you don't have a label behind it (promotion staff and such). Independents like me hire a radio tracker at our expense to try and get music directors and programmers to listen to the song and consider it for airplay. Thank you Lauren Tutty for your hard work ♥ And the competition is fierce. There's a lot of talent out there who wants to be on the radio. So, anyhow, thank you to all of you lovely MDs and MPs who added the song. I am very proud that Fascinated won the Grand Prize in Section II of the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and is now up for a #LennonAward. If I win this phase of the contest, I'll take the country category and go for Song of the Year!!! Wouldn't that be just awesome!!! 

 Thank you:

Saying hello to Mr. Guitar :)

I'm so excited that many people will get to hear Fascinated on country radio in Canada!!! Thank you to CJQC and CICR in Liverpool and Parrsboro, Nova Scotia, CJDL in Tilsonburg, Ontario, and CHMM in Mackenzie, BC for being the first stations to add the song. I cannot it tell you how much it means to me that you guys believe in the song and had a space for it so soon. 

Thank you to CKYC in Owen Sound, Ontario for featuring Fascinated in your "What's New This Week" show. That's awesome!

Thank you Cal Gratton of CIXM in Whitecourt, AB and CJVR in Melfort, SK for featuring the song and for interviewing me. I had a blast!!!

To all the stations in Canada who are considering featuring or playing the song, thank you so much. I am very driven to succeed in the music business and I need all the support I can get. Having said that, I understand it's a tough business (mediabase numbers, etc) and I want you to judge my songs on their merits. Everyone, I've shown Fascinated in Nashville has really liked it!  And it's out just in time for Valentine's Day!!!

Fascinated

words and music by Maddy (Madison) Rodriguez 

You don’t know how long I’ve waited

To be fascinated

By someone like you

This is more than just a crush now

More than just in love now

This is something new

 

You don’t know how long I’ve waited

To be fascinated

By someone like you

This is more than just a crush now

More than just in love now

This is something new

 

Words cannot describe

Just how much I’m

Fascinated by… You-ou-ou-ou-ouuuu

You-ou-ou-ou-ouuuuu You-ou-ou-ou-ouuuuu

You-ou-ou-ou-ouuuu You-ou-ou-ou-ouuuuu You-ou-ou-ou-ouuuuu

 

People say you only fall in love once

But I’m not in agreement

Don’t believe it because

Every single time I’m in your presence

I fall in love again and

All over again

 

Oh and I can’t get enough

I wanna study you baby

Oh and I just want some more

 

Can’t get enough of you

Just want some more of you

 

You don’t know how long I’ve waited

To be fascinated

By someone like you

This is more than just a crush now

More than just in love now

This is something new

Fascinated by… You-ou-ou-ou-ouuuu

You-ou-ou-ou-ouuuuu You-ou-ou-ou-ouuuuu

You-ou-ou-ou-ouuuu You-ou-ou-ou-ouuuuu You-ou-ou-ou-ouuuuu

 

You’re already standing right beside me

But come a little closer

I wanna feel the way you breathe

 

Oh and I can’t get enough

Can’t get enough of you

I wanna study you baby

Oh and I just want some more

Just want some more of you

 

Cuz You don’t know how long I’ve waited

To be fascinated

By someone like you

This is more than just a crush now

More than just in love now

This is something new
