- Maddie and Tae
"Maddie Marlow and Tae Dye didn't set out to be the revolutionaries of the Country mainstream. They just wanted to write songs about life the way two 18-year old young women were living it.
Songs on their debut album, 2015's "Start Here" include themes about bullying ("Sierra"), clueless boys ("Shut Up & Fish"), the power of friendship ("After the Storm Blows Through") and coming of age ("The Down Side of Growing Up"). But when they released "Girl In A Country Song" about the reductive tilt of today's "Bro Country" they had a sensational response which was instant and intense and made them stars."
