Five Minutes With: Toronto Country Singer Meghan Patrick

Riser House Records’ Meghan Patrick never imagined she’d grow up to be a country singer, let alone one who shared stages with the likes of Keith Urban, Old Dominion, Dwight Yoakam, and Kip Moore. Now, nearly a decade into her career journey, the back-to-back CCMA Female Artist of the Year and 18x CMA Ontario-winning country artist has proven this is exactly where she belongs. Meghan Patrick released her debut album, ‘Grace & Grit,’ with the help of country legends, Vince Gill and Jason Niebank in 2016, leading to an avalanche of awards and recognition upon its release, while her sophomore album, ‘Country Music Made Me Do it,’ yielded her first No.1 single at Canadian country radio with “Walls Come Down.” Her Juno Award-winning ‘Wild As Me’ EP (2019) followed, before her latest album, ‘Heart on My Glass’ (2021) earned her multiple CCMA and CMA Ontario Award nominations, (with three CMAO wins). But this is just the beginning, as 2023 is poised to be the year of Meghan Patrick, who kicked off a new musical era with her latest, reflective release, “She’s No Good For Me,” in January.
