When Rolling Stone Country first encountered Maddie & Tae , they were a teenaged duo, so new to the spotlight that they hadn’t quite worked out the elegant dance of taking turns responding to interviewers’ questions. They’d only just released their clever, catchy inversion of a certain bro-country template, “Girl in a Country Song,”and were watching it begin to register at radio and ripple through the media — even the outlets that don’t typically give country music the time of day.
