Maddie & Tae Announce Sophomore Album, “The Way It Feels”

Maddie & Tae will release their sophomore album, The Way It Feels, on April 10.

The 15-song offering features 10 songs from Maddie & Tae’s 2019 EPs, One Heart to Another and Everywhere I’m Goin’, as well as five new songs that the duo co-wrote. The upcoming album, which is available for pre-order now, was produced by Jimmy Robbins and Derek Wells.

The Way It Feels follows Maddie & Tae’s 2015 debut album, Start Here, which featured No. 1 single, “Girl in a Country Song,” and Top 10 hit, “Fly.”

“It has been four years since we’ve released an album,” says Maddie. “For us, this is a lot more than just an album release. This sophomore album will always be a reminder that no matter the setbacks and struggles, we will come out stronger and better. We are so proud of this 15-song story. We wrote these songs during the most vulnerable times and our hope is that people hear that and connect.”

The Way It Feels is finally here!” says Tae. “These songs will always represent something so beautiful and spiritual to us. And hopefully, it will represent something similar to people who listen.”

In addition to top songwriters Laura Veltz, Jesse Frasure, Josh Kerr, Forrest Whitehead, Jon Nite and more, the new albums features vocals from Dierks Bentley on “Lay Here With Me.” Maddie and Tae co-wrote 14 of the 15 songs.

Brian Kelley Finds A Solo Home

Brian Kelley Finds A Solo Home

Earlier this year Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard announced that while Florida Georgia Line would continue, both guys would also be venturing out to do their own musical projects. As their FGL song “Long Live” is knocking on the door to number-1, Tyler is also climbing the chart with Tim McGraw and their duet “Undivided.”

Now, Brian is giving fans a taste of what’s to come with his solo project – he shared, “There’s a new kind of cowboy in town…who’s ready to ride this wave? Can’t wait for y’all to hear this new music.”

Brian also made some news in announcing that he’s partnering with Warner Music Nashville when it comes to any future solo projects he has, “I couldn’t be more grateful for everyone who has helped me on my journey to get here. I’m humbled to team up with Warner Music Nashville to take the music I’ve been dreamin’ and schemin’ up to the next level. This is just the beginning of a whole new adventure. My vision for what’s next is a vibe and state of mind – get ready to ride the wave with ya Beach Cowboy, y’all!”
