Máiréad has been described as one of the brightest stars on the UK country scene. Born and raised in County Tyrone, country music has been in Máiréad’s blood since she was born. With an incredible and unique voice, honed from singing up and down the length of Ireland from the age of 7, the now London based singer has captured the hearts of many loyal fans, earning comparisons to US country stars such as Leann Rimes and Faith Hill.
Her last release, ‘If you loved me once’ a duet with Irish country star Johnny Brady, quickly amassed 60,000 streams on Spotify alone, earning a spot on the 'New Music Nashville' Spotify playlist and gaining national radio play in England and Northern Ireland including Country Hits UK, Chris Country, Downtown Country and Downtown Radio NI.
Máiréad is excited to release her brand new single 'Crying on the Dancefloor' into the world. This track is a super modern country - pop track, co-written and produced by London based producer Kaity Rae.
'Crying on the Dancefloor' tells the story of that very first heartbreak and describes a heart wrenching moment where the person in the story watches their first love on the dance floor, kissing someone else.
Máiréad says "when we were writing and producing this track, we wanted to keep it really modern and infuse that 'dance floor' feel, whilst still staying true to my roots. I feel we've all been there at one point in time and experienced this type of heartbreak - I think the lyrics in the song really tell the story well. I absolutely love the track and can't wait to put it out into the world. There's some fantastic instrumentation from amazing musicians and I hope that you love it as much as I do".
'Crying on the Dancefloor' is due to be released on 13th November 2020 on all platforms and is available to pre-order now!
