Maddie & Tae Announce New Single “Fly” – Listen Here! (@MaddieAndTae)

142d4612-22f8-49ae-9e02-7c01aa516dc1Only the third female duo since the inception toBillboardsCountry Singles Chart the first 71 years ago MADDIE & TAEhave been embracing impossible dreams since leaving Ada, Oklahoma and Sugar Land, Texas in the name of writing and singing their own songs. You could joke its hard to be young, pretty and talented, but when youre starting, that doesnt always make the way easier… or your confidence impenetrable.

In some ways, every day, we cant believe how this is happening, Maddie marvels. Because were racing around, its just Whats the next thing we need to do? Then someone stops us and says,Youre #1…, and its almost not real.

Except it is, Tae continues. And people might think its easy… or it just happens. But weknowthis iscrazy. We also know all the times someone told us not to get our hopes up, not to plan on it. But, you know, youre nothing without a dream.

And so, Maddie Marlow and Tae Dye put pen to paper, deciding toFly. The follow up to their recent chart-topping debut, Maddie & Tae show theyre not onlymorethan a girl in a country song, they offer a song to empower anyone anywhere who has dreams. Not since the Dixie Chicks offered America Wide Open Spaces have young people on the verge had a song to cling to as they tested the unknown, reached for what seems impossible and embraced the missteps getting where they want to be.

Fly isnotabout when the goings easy and the paths smooth, explains Tae. Its when everythings going wrong… when youre sure its not going to happen… and somehow still take that step. For Maddie and I, that always seems to be the moment when literally we fly.

How you keep your faith when its hard makes the difference, adds Maddie. There will always be wrong turns, people who cant see it… and when you keep going, even when youre scared or sad, thats when things seem to happen.

Their approach to acoustic-driven Country is equal parts smarts and real girl spirit. Anything but high gloss, slick finished, jacked up, diamond hard veneer and hip-hop undulation, Fly is organic, drawing on acoustic instruments, the sound of fingers on strings, swooping harmonies that quiver with the tentativityof being young and wanting technically astute vocalists who know how to imbue emotion without losing control.

This is a song we wrote a bit to remind ourselves no matter what happens, dont give up, Maddie says, laughing. Whether youre 20 and starting out… or maybe 30 and trying to figure the next part out… or 40 and deciding if theres something else, we hope this song helps. It did for us, which is why we wrote it, but if we can give people the faith to keep going? To us, thats what musics for.
