Country newcomers Maddie and Tae rocked the 90th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade with their fresh new brand of music. Keep reading for more on their amazing and inspiring performance of ‘Fly.’
How exciting! Maddie Marlow, 21, and Taylor Dye, 21, professionally known as Maddie and Tae had the biggest audience of their young career as a duo, performing at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade Nov. 24. The beautiful honey-blondes were so thrilled to be there and be a part of such an incredible American tradition. They looked sensational in dressed in cozy coats and warm scarves to protect from the chilly 40 degree temps.
The ladies sang their hit “Fly,” with such inspiring lyrics as, “So keep on climbing, though the ground might shake. Just keep on reaching though the limb might break. We’ve come this far, don’t you be scared now. ‘Cause you can learn to fly on the way down.” They performed atop the Girl Scouts of America’s first ever Macy’s Parade float with a giant cutout of the Earth behind them.

We can’t wait for the ladies to deliver their follow-up album to their 2015 debut Start Here, which yielded four hit songs. They made their first big splash in 2014 when their debut single “Girl in a Country Song” reached number one, becoming only the second female duo ever to have their first single go all the way to the top of the country charts.
As for how the new album is coming along, Maddie told Women’s Wear Daily back in Sept. that, “We’ve definitely written a lot of songs that we want on the second album.” Tae added that, “It’s tough though, because we had so long to write the first album and now we’re creeping up on having to release the second album. We feel like we have a lot of content but I think it’s just making sure that we’re telling the right part of the second story. We want it to be cohesive with the first album, not totally different, but we’re also living pretty much totally different lives. We’re in our early 20’s and we’re experiencing new emotions so we’re trying to capture all the feelings, which is tough as a woman.”
Maddie and Tae have such a bright future in Nashville and we hope their appearance at the Macy’s Parade brought them a whole new audience of fans.
