Her first taste of stardom transpired during her performance on the hit television show, American Idol where she performed Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’. She continues to perform live at several wineries, private events, and restaurants, taking every opportunity given to her.

“Beautiful Temporary” is written from the perspective of an ex-lover that has since moved on.

The two have both gotten over the situation, and she truely wishes the best for them. However, she can not help but wonder if his new love will share the same fate that she did.

Her sassy vibe and goodnatured questioning are infectious and cut to the core of who she is.

Maddie Hogan reveals that Beautiful Temporary was written based off of a dream. “I had a dream that I was seated next to an ex-boyfriend on a plane, and the lyrics are how the conversation went! I think this song reflects maturity in truly wishing the best for your past lover. The lyrics, ‘I’m happy for you’, is what the song is all about.”
