When writer Wendy Wilkinson came to COWGIRL with the idea of a cover story on Madison Marlow and Taylor Dye, known as the award-winning Nashville recording artists Maddie & Tae, we jumped at the chance.

COWGIRL has always been a fan of the dynamic duo who continue to accumulate hit songs like their first, “Girl in a Country Song,” and their latest, “Die From a Broken Heart,” not just because their music is so fantastic, but because they represent the empowered young women in our industry whom we strive to promote.

The COWGIRL crew—with Ken Amorosano behind the camera, Fashion Editor Samantha Crowley, and Content Manager, Jenna Link—headed to Nashville to shoot the cover and feature. We teamed up the Maddie & Tae “Glam Squad”—stylist Tiffany Gifford, makeup artist Neil Robison, and hair stylist Amber Cannon—to create the stunning visuals on the cover and feature story.

Maddie & Tae are also featured as part of our exciting new 30 Under 30 program that we launched in this issue. COWGIRL is proud to support the future for women in the Western lifestyle industry and will continually highlight the accomplishments of this important female force for many years to come.
