PLATINUM-selling duo Maddie & Tae celebrated RIAA GOLD certification for their current single “Die From A Broken Heart” ahead of their performance at the Grand Ole Opry this past Friday (2/7). Pegged as “their finest moment yet” (Esquire), “Die From A Broken Heart,” struck immediate fan connection garnering over 130 MILLION streams, while the “revealing” (PEOPLE) official music video torpedoed upon release as the best performing first week for a country female in 2019 with over 30 MILLION video streams to date. Approaching the Top 30 at Country radio, the song will appear on the duo’s upcoming sophomore album THE WAY IT FEELS (Mercury Nashville), out on April 10th.
Award-winning duo Maddie & Tae are drawing praise for their new music “anchored around their stellar vocal pairings and some of the tightest harmonies on Music Row” (Rolling Stone) with a “sound that’s identifiable while still representing a distinct step forward” (Billboard). Maddie & Tae first broke out in 2013 with their brilliant “Girl In A Country Song,” which took Country radio by storm, skyrocketing to the top of the charts and quickly going PLATINUM. The duo became only the third female duo in 70 years to top the Country Airplay charts, also earning trophies from the Country Music Academy and Radio Disney Music Awards along with multiple ACM, CMA and CMT Award nominations. Receiving widespread praise from NPR, Billboard, Entertainment Weekly, The Washington Post, Glamour and others, country music’s hottest stars including Carrie Underwood, Dierks Bentley, Lee Brice and Brad Paisley have welcomed Maddie & Tae on the road, with the pair set to support Lady Antebellum’s 2020 OCEAN TOUR following their own headlining TOURIST IN THIS TOWN TOUR.
