The song has caught on as an answer to all those guys singing about girls wearing cut-off shorts dancing on tailgates and drinking next to a bonfire in the woods.

“We had no idea people would respond like this,” says the duo’s Maddie Marlow. “We wrote a song where we looked at how the girl in these songs must feel… It’s hard, being expected to be in those Daisy Dukes and that bikini top all the time… Tae and I wanted to show people the other side.”

“Girl in a Country Song” is included on Maddie & Tae’s self-titled EP, available for download now.
