MADDIE & TAE were having some fun with the notion of the only thing that matters to guy country singers being short shorts, tan legs and a whole lotta hair when they wrote “Girl In A Country Song,” a super-smart rejoinder that was as funny as it was spot-on. Response from non-obvious places was immediate – and resonant: NPR, Late Show with David Letterman, The New Yorker, Entertainment Weekly.

When “Girl In A Country Song” hit #1 on Billboard’s Country Singles chart, they became only the third female duo in the chart’s history soar to the top with their first single, as well as they were the fastest moving female debut act in eight years. But hitting the top of the charts, Rolling Stone took notice, followed by The Washington Post, proof that a song can still punch through the static.

All well in good in the land of “The …

MADDIE & TAE FEATURED ON WEEKEND TODAY

bb65ecb0-c4c5-4543-b238-31676725e4d1

Weekend Today featured MADDIE & TAE on Saturday (12/13) in a segment highlighting the success of the duo’s #1 debut hit  “Girl In A Country Song.”

Tackling the topic of “bro country,” the segment includes an interview with Maddie & Tae as well as Country Weekly Editor-In-Chief Lisa Konicki who says, “I don’t think there’s a big feminist statement. I think they’re just two young girls that have talent and can sing great and got a catchy song that is hitting a nerve because people know it’s true.”

Rolling Stone has already dubbed the song as the “most talked about” Country song in 2014.

Maddie & Tae will present on the American Country Countdown Awards tonight on FOX at 8/7 Central. They will release their next single, “Fly,” in January 2015 on Dot Records.

MADDIE & TAE MAKE HISTORY

bb65ecb0-c4c5-4543-b238-31676725e4d1

MADDIE & TAE may still be teenagers, but that doesn’t stop them from making history. Closing out a Cinderella 2014 with their first single, their first GOLD certification and their first #1 with the rollicking “Girl In A Country Song,” the spunky pair become only the second female duo to debut #1 on the BDS’ charts – the Wreckers’ “Leave The Pieces” in 2006 first. More impressive, they’re only the third on Billboard’s Country Singles chart – with the first being the Davis’ Sisters with “I Forgot More About Love Than You’ll Ever Know.”

“That’s crazy,” howled the harmony-weaving Tae Dye. “To think about something that happened so long ago, and then it took more then 50 years for the Wreckers to do it again! I can’t believe that… and it makes me love this start even more, as if that were possible.”

Though neither was familiar with the Davis …

RAELYNN TURNS NFL MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL INTO FAMILY GAME TIME

Unknown

Last night (12/8), RAELYNN sang the national anthem at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, WI to kick-off ESPN’s live coverage of NFL Monday Night Football. The home victory saw the Packers defeat the Atlanta Falcons with a final score of 43-37. The 20-year-old “God Made Girls” singer invited her family, who are avid Packers fans, to join in the excitement.

“It is always such an honor for me to be asked to perform ‘The Star Spangled Banner,’” said RaeLynn. “It’s extra special this time because I could invite my dad and uncle to experience their favorite team’s win. Though, I’m not sure if they were cheering louder for me or the Packers!”

RaeLynn, who enjoyed a lengthy run on The Voice (season 2) and recently returned to perform, is featured on “Buzzin’” from coach Blake Shelton’s new album and has seen her empowering debut single continue to rise into …

5e16a21e-66c8-45eb-8fb7-8e22f70d43c8

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.” Rushed into the studio, then straight to country radio, Maddie & Tae struck a nerve: mining Entertainment Weekly, The New Yorker, Atlantic Monthly, USA Today, Rolling Stone and NPR, followed by Late Show with David Letterman, TODAY and Entertainment Tonight, then an RIAA GOLD-certified single as the turn-around’s-fair-play single hit the Top 5.

The Ada, Oklahoman and Sugar Land, Texan are the first female act in eight years to top the Country Singles chart with their debut single “Girl In A Country Song.”

“That’s crazy,” Maddie marvels. “When Tae and I got our publishing deal, we wanted to write songs from a young woman’s perspective about …
