Award-winning duo Maddie & Tae recently earned RIAA Double Platinum status on their record-breaking No. 1 smash hit “Die From A Broken Heart.” On hand to help celebrate and present the plaques to Maddie Font and Taylor Kerr were their longtime friends and bandmates Colton Thomas, Jeremy Little, Shane Smith and Dave Lapsley.
It was especially a treat to be able to share this success with the band. “These guys have been on this wild ride with us and they believed in us even when we may have doubted ourselves,” says Tae. “We are a family!”
“Die From A Broken Heart” resonated with audiences immediately, and when it topped the country airplay charts, Maddie & Tae became the first and only female twosome with multiple No. 1s. The exquisite tune was named one of Billboard’s Top 10 Country Songs of 2020 and was a standout track on the pair’s critically acclaimed sophomore album The Way It Feels.
Maddie & Tae’s brand-new song “Woman You Got” is “clever, upbeat and summer-ready” (Sounds Like Nashville). Revealing their “imperfections” using humor and charm while still showcasing their often-celebrated signature harmonies, “Woman You Got” is playing now on country radio.
Maddie & Tae (reaction to DFABH) OC: …they’re there. :51
“The reaction to ‘Die From A Broken Heart’ was completely unexpected. We didn’t even realize that song was gonna have the life that it is having. It excites me. I can’t even tell you how much it excites me to hear our fans relate to this because it’s so our story and so real and true of what we’ve been through. Like for example, there was a mom that said, ‘My daughter’s going through her first heartbreak, and he wasn’t good for her anyways. She doesn’t realize that now, but that song is getting her through it.’ And that just gives us so much purpose and just like keeps us going just knowing that we’re doing something for people. Just being a Mom and listening to that song, you are right there with your kid, and that’s what the goal is with writing. You want to put people right in that song and make them feel like they’re there.”
