Maddie & Tae reveal what it's like to really be the "Girl in a Country Song"
CMA award winners, MADDIE & TAE boldly introduced their debut single “Girl In A Country Song,” earning a #1 at Country radio, PLATINUM-certification and over 28 million views on VEVO. They are only the third female duo to peak their debut single at #1 in the history of the Billboard Country Singles chart. The pair, from Texas and Oklahoma, respectively, reveal a gumption rarely seen in newcomers, receiving praise from NPR, Entertainment Weekly, The Washington Post and USA Today, and topping Nashville Scene’s Annual Country Critics’ Poll for Single of The Year. With national television appearances on the Late Show with David Letterman and TODAY show under their belt, Maddie & Tae premiered their second single, “Fly,” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Both songs are featured on their album Start Here, which is now available on Dot Records. They are currently introducing their third single, “Shut Up and Fish” to Country radio. The duo’s Grand Ole Opry debut earned kudos from Opry member Brad Paisley while CMT selected the pair for their Next Women of Country and Country Radio Seminar chose them for the 2015 New Faces class. On the heels of such success, Maddie & Tae continue their winning ways with a CMA Award win for Video of the Year as well as nominations for Duo of the Year and New Artist of the Year. Earlier this year, they received their first-ever award nomination for ACM Awards Vocal Duo of the Year and three CMT Music Awards nods, including Breakthrough Video Of The Year.
