Maddie & Tae Show Their Vulnerable Side with Latest Single, “Fly”

Image Courtesy Joseph Llanes/Dot RecordsMaddie & Tae's latest single, "Fly," is a left turn from their sassy, debut hit, "Girl in a Country Song." The duo wanted to dig a little deeper this time around, and they felt the inspirational message of "Fly" would help fans understand them more as artists.

The duo's Maddie Marlow says, "'Fly' was not the obvious choice. You know, most people might go the up-tempo, rockin' song to follow up, but sometimes what's the easiest choice is not always the best choice."

The decision to show their vulnerable side is paying off for Maddie & Tae. "Fly" is already getting a big response from fans when they perform it live.

Maddie adds, "They know every single word, and that just is proof that it's resonating well."

We can expect more unexpected moments when Maddie & Tae's new album, Start Here, comes out June 2.

Little Big Town Opens Up About the Brilliant Jealousy of Their Latest Single, “Girl Crush”

Image Courtesy Capitol NashvilleThe members of Little Big Town didn't write their latest single, "Girl Crush," but the group's Jimi Westbrook thinks the lyrics about a woman's all-consuming jealousy make it one of the most brilliant songs he's heard in years.

Jimi explains, "It's taking a lyric that you've heard so many times, and the way it turns at the hook just catches you. So, it gives me chills every time I listen to it."

His band mate, Phillip Sweet, adds that "Girl Crush" is just the latest in a long line of hit songs about wanting what we can't have.

"Country music was built on songs about heartache and jealousy," says Phillip.

LBT's Kimberly Schlapman can't help but sympathize with the emotion conveyed in "Girl Crush."

She says, "This woman is just looking at the woman her man left her for and wondering, 'What does she have that I don't have? What am I missing? What is it that I can't give you that she's giving you?'"

"Girl Crush" is the latest single from Little Big Town's current album, Pain Killer.
