Maddie & Tae              

Country Music Duo; Known for "Girl in a Country Song"

Maddie & Tae boldly introduced their debut single “Girl In A Country Song” shortly after signing with Dot Records. Featured on their debut album Start Here, of which they penned each of the eleven tracks, the platinum-certified breakout hit soared atop the Country radio charts and made them only the third female duo to peak their debut single at #1 in the history of the Billboard Country singles chart.

The gender-flipping video garnered over 38 million views and scored the duo their first-ever award: CMA Video of the Year. The pair, from Texas and Oklahoma, respectively, also swept the 2016 Radio Disney Music Awards, winning both Favorite Country Artist and Favorite Country Song for GOLD-certified “Fly.” They have previously been nominated for ACM, CMT and CMA Awards.

Receiving critical acclaim from NPR, Entertainment Weekly, The Washington Post and Glamour, among others. Maddie & Tae have appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman, TODAY, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Live! with Kelly and Michael and most recently on The Talk, where they performed a cleverly written tune about dealing with bullies called “Sierra.” Sharing their songs with fans on the road, Maddie & Tae conquered their first headlining START HERE TOUR last fall before joining Lee Brice’s LIFE OFF MY YEARS TOUR and most recently wrapping dates with Brad Paisley’s LIFE AMPLIFIED WORLD TOUR.

The vibrant talents have also partnered with Bloomingdale's on a Special Capsule Collection for Fall 2016 that embodies their youthful sense of adventure and unyielding girl power spirit. AQUA x Maddie & Tae is peppered with an eclectic mix of textures, colors, and silhouettes; the full assortment is available now in all Bloomingdale’s stores and with retail prices ranging from $38.00 to $498.00. Maddie & Tae embarked on a Bloomingdale’s “tour” in Chicago, New York City and Chestnut Hill where they gave fashion presentations and in-store acoustic performances.

Maddie Marlow grew up in Sugar Land, Texas, performing in talent shows and writing songs. Meanwhile in Ada, Oklahoma, Tae Dye mastered the National Anthem by singing at her older brothers’ baseball tournaments and competition in festivals. At the age of 15, the pair met through their vocal coach — who had an operation in Houston, near Maddie, and in Dallas, two hours from Tae — during a showcase in North Texas.

That meeting led to one of many writing trips together to Nashville, and eventually, an introduction to VP of Big Machine Music, Mike Molinar, and his writer Aaron Scherz. It also led to the formal formation of Maddie and Tae."

The result is an organic, rootsy sound fueled by the girls’ upbringing and musicianship — each play guitar on stage, with Maddie picking up the mandolin from time to time — and mirroring the gumption and energy of the early Dixie Chicks albums.

While their music reflects their easy going, energetic personalities, as they wrote together they shared personal, emotional experiences as well.

The duo's latest single "Die From a Broken Heart" was released in early 2019. Maddie & Tae are set to open for Carrie Underwood on her Cry Pretty Tour in 2019.


Maddie & Tae were hoping to hide the hurt when they sat down to write with Jonathan Singleton and Deric Ruttan. It didn't work, as you can tell from listening to "Die From a Broken Heart," a very personal, very effective heartbreak song from their new One Heart to Another EP.
