Melodie Crittenden (born in Shawnee, Oklahoma) is an American country and Christian music artist. She initially recorded a self-titled debut album for Asylum/Elektra Records in 1998, the same year that she charted with her rendition of "Bless the Broken Road" (her version was titled simply "Broken Road"); she would later record the song a second time as a member of the gospel group Selah.
Crittenden has released two studio albums, starting with her self-titled debut in 1998. A third album, entitled The Woman I Am, was slated for release around 2004 but was never released. Since moving to Nashville, Melodie has worked as a touring background vocalist for Kathy Mattea, Amy Grant, Billy Joel, Jewel, and Alan Jackson. She has also appeared as a background vocalist on records for artists such as Blake Shelton, Billy Joel, Alan Jackson, Josh Turner, Travis Tritt, Neil Diamond, Kristin Chenoweth, Ronnie Dunn, and Aaron Tippin.
