Maddie & Tae are back with "Friends Don't"
Monday, April 30, 2018
– Maddie & Tae, the duo behind "Girl in a Country Song," returned on Friday with a new single, "Friends Don't," the duo's first song since signing with Mercury Nashville.
Written by Maddie & Tae, aka Maddie Marlow and Taylor Dye along with Justin Ebach and Jon Nite, is the first single from their sophomore album. Set to impact country radio May 14, fans watch the lyric video.
"I hope our fans love this song as much as we do," said Marlow. "Anything we ever do we have them in mind and want to always create music they can connect with. We have a big story to tell on this album, and 'Friends Don't' is the beginning of it all."
"It feels so good to be back with a song like 'Friends Don't,'" said Dye. "This song is everything we've always been. Honest, vulnerable and confident. We can't wait for our fans to hear the rest of the record."
Maddie & Tae received much play for "Girl in a Country Song," a reaction to bro country, which was on their debut "Start Here" in 2015. They became only the third female duo in 70 years to top the country airplay charts with their debut single. They won a CMA Award for Video of the Year for "Girl In A Country Song." They also had a hit with "Fly."
