James Maddock Reassures on “I’ve Been There Too”


James Maddock found millions of fans listening to his music on Dawson’s Creek as lead singer of Wood, the band known for pleasant tunes like “Stay You” and “Let Me Fall.” Now, Maddock is the one lending an ear to anyone struggling through a rough patch.

“‘I’ve Been There Too” is a song that says, ‘No matter what you’re going through in life, particularly when times are tough, and you’re feeling isolated and lonely, you’re going to be OK,’” says Maddock, who moved to New York City’s Lower East Side after Wood broke up.

“You’re not alone, everybody has these moments in their lives and they come through it,” he adds. “It’s a song about hanging on in there!!”

The comforting track is featured on Maddock’s upcoming album, Another Life, arriving July 23. The project promises his familiar, heartfelt songwriting, yet with an Americana feel. Enjoy the CMT Edge premiere of “I’ve Been There Too,” then go give your best friend a hug.
