Moments before taking the stage at the Grand Ole Opry Friday night (3/3) Mercury Nashville duo Maddie & Tae were surprised with a plaque commemorating their #1 hit song “Die From A Broken Heart” achieving Triple Platinum certification by the RIAA. Written by Maddie & Tae with Jonathan Singleton and Deric Ruttan, the track now stands as the pair’s most-certified song, surpassing sales of 3 million units.
Next up, Maddie & Tae will continue their headlining All Song No Static Tour into Spring 2023, kicking off March 16 in Madison, WI. Following fan demand and numerous sold-out shows in 2022, the pair will take the stage in 12 additional markets for a high-energy set filled with fan-favorite tracks and new music from their 2022 one-two punch projects Through The Madness Vol. 1 and Through The Madness Vol. 2. Tickets and a full list of tour dates are available at maddieandtae.com/tour.
Award-winning duo Maddie & Tae channel their unbreakable bond, honest songwriting and “some of the tightest harmonies on Music Row” (Rolling Stone) into their new collection of songs Through The Madness Vol. 2, out now. Together as longtime friends and music collaborators, Maddie Font and Taylor Kerr co-wrote each of the project’s tracks, as well as all 8 songs on Through The Madness Vol. 1. The pair drew praise for their No. 1 debuting The Way It Feels album, including the 3X Platinum-certified No. 1 hit, “Die From A Broken Heart.” With “Die From A Broken Heart” topping the country airplay charts, Maddie & Tae became the first and only female twosome with multiple No. 1s.|
The celebrated duo has toured with country music’s hottest stars including Carrie Underwood, Dierks Bentley, and Brad Paisley. Their headlining All Song No Static Tour sold out major markets coast-to-coast in 2022, with additional shows extending through Spring 2023.
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.”
