Current CMA Awards Vocal Duo of the Year nominees and PLATINUM-selling Maddie & Tae will unveil Part Two of their album on October 18th titled Everywhere I’m Goin’ (Mercury Nashville). Continuing to “usher in their new era” (Billboard), the new music produced by Jimmy Robbins and Derek Wells is anchored by the swaggering stomper “Bathroom Floor,” available now. Written by Maddie & Tae’s Maddie Marlow and Taylor Dye along with Josh Kerr, the fiery new track is a resilient response to the award-winning duo’s current single “Die From A Broken Heart,” which continues to strike a deep connection, tallying over 75 MILLION global streams, helping to propel the pair as the Best Streaming Country Female Duo of ALL TIME with 686 MILLION streams worldwide. Meanwhile, “Die From A Broken Heart’s” “revealing” (PEOPLE) videos have mounted over 17.4 million views total, catapulting Maddie & Tae as the top video streaming female artist(s) on Billboard’s Top 200 Streaming Chart for current tracks for multiple weeks.

The EP follows widespread praise for the album’s first part shared earlier this year, propelling critics to note, “a more sophisticated side” (Associated Press) and “their finest moment yet” (Esquire), and is a continuation of stories of love, loss and redemption. The project features the effervescent title track and “Trying On Rings,” which is a true-to-life reflection for Marlow and her fiancé. Later, the award-winning duo reunite with former tour-mate and multi-PLATINUM entertainer Dierks Bentley on a vocal firepower duet, “Lay Here With Me.” Rounding out the project, “Ain’t There Yet,” offers an honest interpretation of healing after heartbreak.
“We are so excited to keep telling our story through this next collection of songs,” shared Marlow. “We are so proud to have co-written all of these songs as well. This project as a whole is super personal, but these five songs in particular take you on an even deeper dive into our lives.”
“We were absolutely blown away by the reaction to the first part of the album,” added Dye. “Hearing our fans relate to our stories is something that will never get old. We can’t wait to continue to show more of our hearts and journey through this next chapter of music.”
Next week, Maddie & Tae will continue to showcase “the stage confidence of a seasoned duo” (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel) as they resume direct support on Carrie Underwood’s The Cry Pretty Tour 360 hitting the West Coast in San Diego (9/10) and Los Angeles (9/12). The tour routes through several major cities and marquee venues through October 31st.

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). Following the first part of their new album in April, the next installment will be released on October 18, while “the sound is identifiable while still representing a distinct step forward” (Billboard). Maddie & Tae first broke out in 2013 with their brilliant take down of bro-country, “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 Dierks Bentley, Lee Brice and Brad Paisley have welcomed Maddie & Tae on the road, with Carrie Underwood recently inviting the duo out as direct support on her 2019 The Cry Pretty Tour 360.
