Maddie & Tae are definitely one of our favorite country duo’s of all time, and rightfully so! These two write some of the most unbelievable songs that not only speak to the soul, but they make you feel good, too! Which we think makes them some of the best lyricists and vocalists in the country music genre, and, quite frankly, y’all need to stop sleeping on them!
This duo is a must-have on all your playlists – from empowerment playlists to breakup playlists and everything in between. They have something everyone will enjoy, which is why we wanted to introduce them to those of you that may have never listened to them before. So, without further ado, let’s dive into the wonderful world of Maddie & Tae!
This song is such a female empowerment anthem! Maddie & Tae are repairing hearts in the video as they sing about the aftermath of breakups and how the best thing to do to get over that person is to get up off the bathroom floor, get dressed up, and go have a night on the town with your besties. We’d LOVE to spend a night out with Maddie and Tae – it looks like it’s an absolute blast!
‘Shut Up And Fish’
This is one of Maddie & Tae’s first songs, and let us tell you, it is still one of our favorites! It’s super catchy and fun to sing along to. It’s also their take on a bad date, which, let’s be honest, we’ve all been there. This is our go-to pick-me-up song, and we think you’ll love it as much as we do.
‘Girl In A Country Song’
This is the song that put these goddesses on the map, and, to be honest, the song still slaps! It’s also such a powerful song as it touches on the stereotypes women face in the eyes of some “men,” which is loudly represented throughout the song and the entire music video. Overall, this song will forever be a classic in our eyes, and we think it’s the perfect addition to all of your playlists!
Ever fallen in love with your best friend? This song poetically describes those unspoken words and feelings through the lyrics and theatrical music video of two friends who love each other but don’t let each other know. Not outwardly anyway, but their body language and actions speak louder than words. It’s stunning all around, and we always enjoy singing along to it.
‘Die From A Broken Heart’
We don’t even have the words to describe how much we adore this song adequately. It’s beautifully sad but perfectly encapsulates those post-breakup emotions, and it gets us all in our feels every time we hear it. Also, can we talk about how Maddie & Tae are ultimate friendship goals!? We think it’s one of those songs that will be on our heavy rotation playlist for years to come, and we aren’t even mad about it.
Okay, first of all, their vocals in this track have us swooning so hard over them. Secondly, this song hits deep in the soul and in the feels. The lyrics tell the story of one of the push and pull, on and off again relationships that we’ve all experienced in some form or another. The other person comes and goes so much they are just like smoke in the wind; there one minute and gone in the blink of an eye. It’s beautifully written, and we’re kind of obsessed with it, especially live!
This song tugs on our heartstrings for a different reason. This is one of Maddie & Tae’s most inspiring songs to date as they sing about powering through. When things get tough and dark, keep your head up, spread your wings, and fly – you will overcome anything life throws at you. It’s one of those motivational songs that we all need in our lives – so listen to it, take it in, and keep it with you always.
‘Everywhere I’m Going’
You know that saying, “Home is where the heart is?” Well, this song is an interpretation of that saying, at least in our opinion. This song is all about that one person who is your world- your everything. No matter where you go or where you’ve been, it’s them that make you feel complete and like you live in paradise every day, even if you’re just lying in bed watching tv. We think it’s beautiful, and next time you want to do something nice for that special someone, dedicate this song to them! We bet it’ll make they’ll light up like a Christmas tree!
‘Drunk Or Lonely’
We love this song! Everything about it is perfection, from the production down to the way Maddie & Tae sing it. Not to mention, they are singing about an all too common experience- that one person who only ever hits you up when they are lonely, drunk, or missing you. It’s a sad reality that many people have been through this kind of situation-ship, making this song hit too close to home for some. We can’t seem to get enough of this one, but you won’t hear us complaining about it.
‘Lay Here With Me’ Ft. Dierks Bentley
Phew, talk about emotional! This song brings us to tears when we listen to it. It’s about troubles in a relationship- the fighting, the loneliness, and the uncertainty. But they are tired of it all and want to get back to the basics: just lay here and be with them. Forget about the animosity for five mins and just be with each other. It’s so stunning, and it’s a must-add to your playlists.
‘Downside Of Growing Up’
Y’all should’ve known we would include this beauty. It’s pretty much our life song now as adults because it’s the anthem for “adulting is hard.” As you grow up, you start to realize that life isn’t as great as you thought it would be, and you’ll go through so many hardships and trying times. Despite it all, you’ll be okay, and that is the most important message the song can give to us.
‘I Don’t Need To Know’
One thing Maddie & Tae do well is breakup anthems. Well, the “aftermath of a breakup” anthems. This one is about an ex moving on, and everyone keeps talking about everything he does with this new girl when you don’t want to know because it’s too painful, especially when you’re already driving yourself crazy thinking up stuff on your own. Like all of their songs, it’s relatable to the masses and a full-on bop. Add it to your breakup playlist, and scream sing the pain away – you got this!
