In the six months since “Girl In A Country Song” hit the airwaves, MADDIE & TAE have caused a sensation. But there’s so much more to the pair from Ada, Oklahoma and Sugar Land, Texas than the song that caught the attention of many prominent members of the media and of course everyone here at CS4U!
With “Fly” poised to go for adds at country radio, Jimmy Fallon and his team at The Tonight Show reached out for duo’s song about taking chances, coming into your dream and knowing the mistakes are part of the journey. Though the single has yet to land at radio, Maddie & Tae have been asked to debut “Fly” next Friday (1/23).
“Every time we think it can’t get any better, something else incredible happens,” says Maddie Marlow. “The response to ‘Girl’ – from the press to the fans to country radio giving us our first #1. Now getting to go on Jimmy Fallon and sing our brand new single?!”
“‘Fly’ is so important to us,” continues Taylor Dye, “because it really is the story of our journey, of doing something that might be crazy. Being scared and being emancipated to come to Nashville at 17… saying ‘No, we want to write our own songs…,’ not knowing if that’s gonna break the deal. But you have to believe in yourself.”
“Trusting being told ‘No’ is part of it is so hard,” Maddie picks up. “Because you’re not sure, but you have to believe… No matter what your dream is, and no matter what people tell you. That’s why this song matters. We hope for anyone else trying to make a dream come true, they can find the faith to keep going in ‘Fly’ when they’re about to give up.”
With an EP that debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Chart, a tour just announced with Dierks Bentley and time in the studio to finish up their much anticipated debut album, Maddie & Tae are in the zone and climbing. As the new year dawns, with a new single that expands their horizons, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on January 23 is a wonderful place to start.
