Co-writing all but one of the album’s “vulnerable 15 tracks” (Billboard), critics laud Maddie & Tae’s sophomore album has been “well worth the wait” (E! Online), delivering “stories tackling grueling heartbreak, glowing marriage and the late nights where friends matter more than either” (The Tennessean).

“a 15-song reminder of the group’s penchant for real-life experiences explained through diligent truth-telling” – The Tennessean
“the new project is filled with even deeper, more vulnerable lyrics, paired with a more mature, polished brand of pop-country, added to their tightly-woven harmonies” – MusicRow
“Throughout the old and new tracks on The Way It Feels, Maddie & Tae’s harmonizing and hook creation serve as a worthy bedrock, and one that will still delight longtime supporters.” – Billboard
“The Way It Feels, the follow-up to Start Here, is more mature and highlights a different place in life for 24-year-old singers” – US Weekly
“they’re a little older, a little wiser, but still every bit the prolific and gifted singer-songwriters they were five years ago” – CMT.com
“the duo’s long-awaited sophomore album is filled with their pristine harmonies wrapped around stories of love, loss and redemption.” – Sounds Like Nashville
“The Way It Feels has all the feels, from the poignant ballad ‘Die From A Broken Heart’ and the girls’ anthem ‘Bathroom Floor’ to the plaintive prayer ‘Water in His Wine Glass’ and the feisty kiss-off ‘New Dogs Old Tricks.’” – The Oklahoman
Award-winning duo Maddie & Tae are drawing praise for their new music “anchored around their stellar vocal pairings and some of the tightest harmonies on Music Row” (Rolling Stone) with a “sound that’s identifiable while still representing a distinct step forward” (Billboard). Their highly anticipated sophomore album THE WAY IT FEELS is available now (Mercury Nashville), featuring the GOLD-certified nearly Top 20 single “Die From A Broken Heart.” Maddie & Tae first broke out in 2013 with their brilliant “Girl In A Country Song,” which took Country radio by storm, skyrocketing to the top of the charts and quickly going PLATINUM. The duo became only the third female duo in 70 years to top the Country Airplay charts, also earning trophies from the Country Music Academy and Radio Disney Music Awards along with multiple ACM, CMA and CMT Award nominations. Receiving widespread praise from NPR, Billboard, Entertainment Weekly, The Washington Post, Glamour and others, Country music’s hottest stars including Carrie Underwood, Dierks Bentley, Lee Brice and Brad Paisley have welcomed Maddie & Tae on the road, with the pair set to support Lady Antebellum’s 2020 OCEAN TOUR

Maddie & Tae (what fans can expect) OC: (Maddie) …are good. :57
MADDIE: There’s so much I feel like our fans are gonna learn about us this new project. I think y’all are gonna be able to hear so many different sides of Tae and I. I think coming out with ‘Girl in a Country Song,’ that’s the song that we’re known for and I’m proud of that, we’re both proud of that, but this second album just gives you like just a much bigger lens to look into our lives and we are not artists that cut music or write music that doesn’t apply to our lives. Which, we love artists that do that, there’s nothing wrong with it, but we tend to always write about our real lives and real experiences. And so you hear, I feel like you’re kind of in our diary, like a little, just a lot more deeper than I expected people. Like there’s some songs that I was even afraid of like ‘Water In His Wineglass’ that was a really personal story that I was nervous to share, but I think some of those nerves are good.”
