Ever the tech savvy millennials, Maddie & Tae have kept the focus on their fans, enlisting them to help reveal their self-titled EP cover art this afternoon across social media platforms.
Maddie & Tae showcase a hearty mix of sweet and spitfire on the November 4 digital release on Dot Records, a newly established imprint underneath the Big Machine Label Group. Already creating buzz at radio with their Top 15-and-climbing debut single, “Girl In A Country Song” boasts over 8.9 million views online and has consistently remained in the Top 5 Country videos on iTunes after escalating to the top spot. The newcomers are credited with co-writing all of the project’s diverse tracks, including the breakout hit that elicited Rolling Stone to claim: “no country single has been a hotter topic this year.” Fans seem to agree, propelling the unabashed song into the top 10 on iTunes Top Country Digital chart.
