Maddie & Tae Confess They're Frugal, Domestic, Neat Freaks

New duo Maddie & Tae might take aim at some of the cliches about women in country music in their first top five hit, but the pair confess they are much more put together than any “Girl in a Country Song.” Furthermore, the duo is well-matched, since they’re both neat freaks.

“On the road, oh my gosh, it's so awesome,” Maddie says.  “We both have our toiletry bag and then we've got our sections of PJs and jeans and…  it's just really nice to not have clutter everywhere… We're both kind of weird in that. We love, like, to be organized.”

“I like to cook. It's one of my escapes. Like, working out, cooking, and this is weird, but cleaning really helps, too,” Maddie confesses. “Oh, cleaning. Organizing my closet is therapy,” Tae chimes in. “Like color-coordinating my clothes. Love it.”

And if you suspect that might mean they have expensive tastes, you’d be wrong.

“We're both, like, really frugal and kind of bargain Betties. I got, like, a bunch of my clothes, that either I just don't wear or don't fit or whatever. And I went and sold them and made, like, 20 bucks,” Maddie brags.

So far, “Girl in a Country” song has been certified gold, selling half a million digital downloads.
