WILMINGTON, NC (WECT)- a local country singer who is well on her way to making it big on the music scene performed live on Carolina in the Morning Tuesday.

Madonna Nash, born and raised in Wilmington, comes from a musical family.

Nash's great, great uncle was Connie B. Gay, founding president of the Country Music Association.

Nash is also the winner of the 2010 Female Country Artist of the Year at the Carolina Music Awards.

Tuesday on CIM, Nash told viewers she has been writing songs and performing them all her life.

Recently she made a music video to go along with her single “Dirty little Secret.”

It was filmed at Scooter Skating Center on Shipyard Boulevard in Wilmington.

“Dirty little Secret” was included on CMT's weekly fan-voted show “Social Hour”. On the most recent episode of “Social Hour”, Nash's video received more votes than any other video, including those by top name artists on major labels.

Nash dished out some advice for others looking to start a music career.

“You know if that's your dream, I say go for it. do it now, don't wait until tomorrow. Somebody is going to take that spot if you don't, I always tell everybody, the only person standing in your way is yourself.”

We also asked Nash how she is able to juggle being a wife and mother along with her music career.

“For any working mother it's going to be a challenge. the traveling, being away from my kids, it's hard. I make sure I'm not gone more than two weeks at a time, because it is hard being away and I don't want to miss anything.”

According to Nash, if you have a dream and want to make it a reality, it is possible for it to happen.

“You can make it happen. as long as you are determined and you put your whole effort into it and your whole heart and soul, you can do it.”

Since recording her album in Nashville, she says things have only gotten better.

“Now it's a little bit different to be on stage and to have someone actually singing my songs back to me, you know that is huge, it's something I've always dreamed off and now is happening, that's really rewarding.”

Her current album is produced by Dave Demay and Charles Fulp, a producer of multiple top 20 Billboard singles. It's available on iTunes, Amazon.com, Sears.com and BestBuy.com.
