'''Madison Kay "Maddie" Font''' (née Marlow, born July 7, 1995) and '''Taylor Elizabeth "Tae" Kerr''' (née Dye, born September 18, 1995) are a CountryMusic duo from Texas and Oklahoma, respectively. They first gained fame in 2014 for their BreakoutHit "Girl in a Country Song," a scathing critique of the then-ubiquitous "bro-country" and the disrespectful ways women were presented in the subgenre.
