    MADDIE & TAE GIVE A VOICE TO EVERY “GIRL IN A COUNTRY SONG” IN NEW MUSIC VIDEO

    July 24, 2014 0 Comments

    MADDIE & TAE boldly bring a fresh perspective to the radio waves, giving a voice to the often trivialized, “Girl In A Country Song.” NPR exclusively shared the vision earlier today, premiering the official music video for the female duo’s cheeky debut single on Dot Records. While gaining a lot of recent attention, the esteemed outlet notes, “Maddie Marlow, who is 19 years old, and Tae Dye, who is 18, made it abundantly clear that they're aiming to tweak country's conventions, not tear them down.” Watch the unique video here, shot outside of Nashville with director TK McKamy. 
     
    Additionally, “Girl In A Country” song was the most-added song at Country radio this week.  
     
    Maddie & Tae will make their national television debut  August 11 on NBC’s TODAY . 
     
    MusicRow calls the unabashed introduction, "fabulous. They have the guts to sass every ‘bro-country’ cliche out there. She hates her tight cut-offs, her bikini top and being called pretty little thing, hottie or baby. Not to mention being whistled at, shaking her money maker and being invited to ride along in the pickup truck. Bonus points for the lively tune, the catchy track, the saucy harmonies and the overall wit. I guarantee you will smile.”
     
    Maddie & Tae, who penned the tune with Big Machine Music staff writer Aaron Scherz, merged their love of mainstream Country and traditional upbringing into the confident yet carefree track. "…it’s no mystery why this singing and songwriting pair from the neighboring states of Texas (Marlow) and Oklahoma (Dye) has built such buzz. Excellent timing, for one thing. They've arrived on the heels of listener fatigue, offering a different vantage point. And it certainly doesn’t hurt that they have a feel for intertwining their voices, executing their phrasing and crafting their hooks for maximum smartly sweet impact,” surmises Rolling Stone Country.
     
    Their creative insight initially dominated headlines across The AtlanticThe Washington PostCMTYahoo! Music and more, touting the song as “undeniably catchy” and “a deliciously snarky tune.”

    MADDIE & TAE REVEAL WHAT IT'S LIKE TO REALLY BE THE "GIRL IN A COUNTRY SONG"

    July 14, 2014 0 Comments

    Armed with two guitars and sass rarely heard from newcomers, MADDIE & TAE are shaking things up with their debut single, “Girl In A Country Song.” The first release from Dot Records will be available on iTunes tomorrow (7/15) and is already making headlines with the bold introduction that has been touted as “fantastically unapologetic” and “gutsy.”

    The female duo’s gumption has garnered praise from multiple outlets with high-profile magazine The Atlantic surmising, "'Girl In A Country Song' skewers the last few years of Nashville machismo—which is a refreshing change, and smart business." With lyrics like, “we used to get a little respect, now we’re lucky if we even get to climb up in your truck keep our mouth shut and ride along. And be the girl in a country song,” it's no wonder that the track was listed as a Taste of Country Critic's Pick, which also commended the pair saying, “not since Gretchen Wilson has a female artist come out throwing punches like these.”

    While fans of many of the recent songs in mainstream Country, the two began to ponder why "the girl" hasn't had a voice. Maddie & Tae, who penned "Girl In A Country Song" with Big Machine Music staff writer and producer Aaron Scherz, admit their cheeky yet insightful tune is “all in good fun" and a viewpoint that hasn’t really been heard before. "We don't want to bring the guys down, we just want to lift the ladies up as well," says Tae. Backing Maddie & Tae up for their light-hearted approach, CMT.com noted, "I really hope the guys whose songs are mentioned aren't offended. But if they are, let's just remember this: They started it."

    The female duo is currently on their first Country radio tour to introduce "Girl In A Country Song" in advance of the July 21 impact date. The single is generating substantial buzz, even among male tastemakers like VP Programming for Clear Channel Minneapolis/Program Director of KEEY GREGG SWEDBERG, who calls the song, "a potential game-changer for the format…the future is almost limitless.”
