Madison Kozak “If We Were A Country Song” Song Review

Madison Kozak is back with brand new music. The rising singer has released her brand song “If We Were A Country Song." She also released a music video to go along with the single.

Kozak’s debut single “First Last Name” garnered much attention with its release back in 2018. The release earned her a publishing deal with Big Loud Records, which caught the attention of singer-songwriter Nicolle Gaylon. Gaylon then launched her own female-driven label Songs & Daughters, and Kozak became its flagship artist. Kozak graduated from Belmont University around this time with a degree in Music Business. In 2021, she was named on CMT’s 2021 Listen Up list.

“If We Were A Country Song” is Kozak’s first release in over two years. The ballad starts off with a somber melody that suits Kozak’s voice perfectly. It’s the type of tune that blends a pop-influenced arrangement with a classic country sound into a sweet love song. The production quality is bound to take listeners back in time to the ballads of years past making it feel nostalgic.

The lyrics ponder the idea of a type of love song that would represent a relationship that is more sour than sweet. An intense storm of emotion rather than the enduring kind. “If we were a country song / We would be the kind people break up to, make love all night, like whiskey and vinyl / Certified gold, hanging on the mantle, with a million teardrops sold.”

Within the compelling storytelling, Kozak also pays homage to the great love story musicians of Dolly Parton and Porter Wagner and Johnny Cash and June Carter making it feel reminiscent and one for the ages that'll never get old.

Next week, Kozak is also going to be featured on The Nash News’ segment titled Songs I Grew Up On on Tuesday, May 23rd, on Instagram. Make sure to tune in to hear about the music that influenced her.
