They're not all that long out of high school, but Madison "Maddie" Marlow and Taylor "Tae" Dye are taking the country music world by storm.
With their funny hit "Girl in a Country Song," they upended any number of cliches about women in country music tunes (who often end up on the wrong end of the stick) and got noticed in a big way, topping the charts and leading to their self-titled EP, which was released last year.
Of course, maybe TODAY had a little hand in that success: Hoda Kotb played a sample of one of their songs on the show a while back, something the ladies caught while on their tour bus. "We were like, this is the coolest thing ever!" said Marlow during the pair's visit to TODAY Monday.
Be sure to catch all of the sassy energy they brought to the plaza in our videos, and don't miss their first visit to TODAY from August of 2014!
Maddie & Tae's debut album, "Start Here," is now in stores.
