Madie & Tae Release Debut Album
It’s been a long time in the making, but Maddie & Tae’s Start Here debut album arrives in stores today. Maddie Marlowe and Tae Dye have already made some impressive strides with their chart-topping, platinum-selling debut single, “Girl In A Country Song,” and their inspirational current hit, “Fly,” which are both included on the new album.
Tae says the release of Start Here is the realization of a lifelong dream that she and Maddie have worked hard to achieve.
“It feels like it’s been such a long time coming cause we’ve been writing this album since we were 15, and so the fact that it is finally here, the time for it to come out and our fans to hear all of our music that we’ve been working really hard on . . . It’s overwhelming, cause we’ve been waiting for this day and we’ve been waiting for this moment, and I think we’re just really excited to see what the fans think and I think we’re really excited to have our album in a store for the first time. (Maddie) Oh my gosh, I can’t wait to go . . . We’re gonna go . . . We’ve already planned. We’re gonna go in our PJs with like no makeup on and see if anyone like recognizes us, go buy our record at like an ungodly hour, and it’s gonna be awesome in our PJs! (Tae) This is a big week for us, so, I mean, we have a lot of stuff planned.”
Maddie & Tae’s plans include a release day in-store at Waterloo Records in Austin, Texas followed by an evening performance at the Austin360 Amphitheater as part of Dierks Bentley’s Sounds of Summer tour.
Maddie says that she and Tae are excited to spend release day near her hometown of Sugarland, Texas and celebrate with family and friends.
“We’re gonna be in our stomping grounds. We’re maybe like six hours from your hometown in Ada, Oklahoma . . . (Tae) Yep. (Maddie) And then about three hours from my hometown. We’re definitely having some family out to hang out and stuff. (Tae) And our merch will get a new addition! (Maddie) Yes! (Tae) The actual album! We’ll get to sell that at merch. (Maddie) We’ll get to sell it! And we really want to put together something really special for our fans. (Tae) Yeah. (Maddie) We’re kind of brewing something but we can’t say just yet but we’re really excited for that.”
Maddie & Tae will also perform on NBC’s Today show on Tuesday, September 1st.
