Maddie & Tae release "Die From a Broken Heart" video
Thursday, August 8, 2019 – Maddie & Tae released the official music video today of their latest single, "Die of a Broken Heart."
The treatment was predominately written by the duo about the demise of a young couple's relationship. Taylor Dye acted in the video with Maddie Marlow taking lead vocals.
"We knew that with a song like 'Die From a Broken Heart,' the music video needed to come from that same vulnerability and that's exactly what we did," Dye said. "We went back and forth with our director Carlos Ruiz for weeks just trying to make sure we had all the tools to make this story come to life. This music video was healing for me and I hope it plays a part in someone else's healing as well."
"Carlos was the best director to collaborate with on this video," said Marlow. "He really listened to our vision and what we wanted this video to look and feel like. Carlos came up with the bones of the treatment and we filled in the details with what inspired 'Die From a Broken Heart.' My goal was to tell the story as honestly as possible and make people feel for either the one with her heart broken or for the best friend having to watch her go through it. Tae was so vulnerable and did an amazing job acting out her story. I'm so proud of her for going there fully, so that others can connect. Of all the videos we've created, 'Die From a Broken Heart' is the one I'm most proud of making."
Maddie & Tae are next slated to appear at The 13th Annual ACM Honors on Aug. 21 at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium.
Next month, the duo will resume as support on Carrie Underwood's The Cry Pretty Tour 360.
In just two songs, Maddie & Tae illustrate the two sides of Christmas. The pair's version of "O Come All Ye Faithful" is given a faithful reading and even includes scripture recitation at the end. Next, with "Merry Married Christmas," marital fidelity at Christmastime is celebrated happily. The "We Need Christmas" EP reminds us once again that there are many sides to the holiday season.

Maddie & Tae (aka Madison Marlow and Taylor Dye) start their biggest song "Girl in a Country Song" with a warning, "No country music was harmed in the making of this song." That warning also applies to the remaining 10 songs, which is about as country sounding as music seems to get these days for most artists.
"Girl in a Country Song" is an answer song, of course, to the bro country going on all around them with faceless women being depicted as objects while ...
Most casual listeners will be wondering if singing duo Maddie & Tae have another attention-getter in them like "Girl In A Country Song" when it comes to the act's debut EP. Although there's nothing that rivals the bro-country answer song of "Girl," the other three tracks on this initial release show great promise.
"Sierra" takes aim at high horse women, rather than lusting men. So much so, in fact, their thoughts nearly verge on making them lose their Christianity. ...
