It’s been almost four years since Maddie & Tae strummed their way into country music consciousness with their breakout No. 1 hit, “Girl in a Country Song.” The duo found success with subsequent songs from their debut album, Start Here, including Top 10 single, “Fly,” and Top 25 single, “Shut Up and Fish.”
Maddie & Tae gave fans their first taste of their upcoming sophomore album by releasing new single, “Friends Don’t,” on April 27. The new tune, which was penned by Maddie, Tae, Jon Nite and Justin Ebach, was co-produced by Jimmy Robbins and Derek Wells.
“I hope our fans love this song as much as we do,” said Maddie. “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,'” added Tae. “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.”
