Maddie & Tae were shocked to find themselves amongst the nominees for Vocal Duo of the Year at tonight’s (Wednesday, November 14th) CMA Awards.
Maddie Marlow said, “Being nominated this year, one – we never expected it, obviously, but we didn’t really expect it this year, because we just put the first single out and everything is slowly rolling out. Having that nomination was like, oh wow, our peers do still feel like we’re doing something special and do still believe in us and that was a really nice spirit-lifter where we were like, ‘Oh my gosh. We are doing something right and we’re making music that people are enjoying,’ and that was just a huge, huge compliment. And we’re nominated with some of favorite people in the industry, so super fun.”
Maddie & Tae face competition in the Vocal Duo of the Year category from Brothers Osborne, Dan + Shay, Florida Georgia Line and Sugarland.
