If we had to sum up Madeline Merlo’s performance of “Unraveling” with just one word, it would without a doubt be “wow”. We knew the country star could sing but wow, “Unraveling” proves she can really sing.
With seemingly effortless runs and a buttery tone that draws you in, Madeline truly deserves the title for vocalist of the year with this one.
The song itself is worth every bit of praise as well. Lyrics like “but we started takin’ stead of givin’, until we were keeping score”, tug at your heartstrings and leave you with a feeling of emptiness, in a way only the best heartbreak songs can. “Unraveling” perfectly captures the state of a relationship when it begins to lose its shimmer and starts drifting towards goodbye.
