Only the third female duo since the inception to Billboard’s Country Singles Chart – the first 71 years ago – MADDIE & TAE have been embracing impossible dreams since leaving Ada, Oklahoma and Sugar Land, Texas in the name of writing and singing their own songs. You could joke it’s hard to be young, pretty …
MADDIE & TAE have something. Writing a song scoffing at the nameless bootie-short-sporting hotties the bro-cos seem to like, Maddie Marlow and Tae Dye signed a deal as Big Machine’s first act on the historic Dot label while recording “Girl In A Country Song.”
Maddie & Tae wrote “Girl In A Country Song” on St. Patrick’s Day, signed their record deal while recording it – and yet, just two weeks before Thanksgiving – the duo’s debut single is Top 5 at Country radio and certified GOLD by the RIAA for sales exceeding 500,000 digital downloads.
Ever the tech savvy millennials, Maddie & Tae have kept the focus on their fans, enlisting them to help reveal their self-titled EP cover art across social media platforms.
“Girl In A Country Song” has amassed over 3 million views on Vevo in a mere four days, eliciting more momentum around hot newcomers MADDIE & TAE. In the music video for their debut single, the teenage duo deliver a hilarious role reversal that features guys strutting around in “painted on cut-off jeans.”
