Nashville-based country duo Maddie & Tae performed in the latest episode of CMT’s digital Campfire Sessions series. Many of the duo’s new songs, like “Madness,” developed as the tandem sat through quarantine and wrote the song in question “about the people who get you through the rough times … or in our case, the guys who changed our last names.” In addition, Maddie & Tae married their husbands just before the March 20202 shutdown — Maddie married Jonah Font on November 22, 2019, while Tae wed Josh Kerr on February 21, 2020.
Fresh from the extended pandemic break and back outside, the duo performed “Madness,” “Bathroom Floor,” and double-platinum seller “Die From A Broken Heart” acoustically with two guitarists, Sam Wilson and Shane Smith. Regarding “Bathroom Floor,” Maddie Font noted, “this song changed our lives last year. On every album, you have a song that you don’t know is going to be ’the’ song. This song — and the life it’s had — we’re glad. [It was] written during a tough time in [our lives], and it’s so cool to see how it’s [evolved].
