Maddie & Tae: They Shut Up and Fished

Catching up at ASCAP Awards

They didn’t look like they could fish.

When Maddie Marlow and Tae Dye walked the red carpet at Monday night’s (Nov. 2) ASCAP Awards, they were in head-to-toe glam – Marlow in shimmery navy Luis Antonio jumpsuit, and Tae Dye in a vintage Bob Mackie dress from New York Vintage with Stuart Weitzman shoes.

But underneath all that, these girls can fish. Really, really fish.

Their new single “Shut Up and Fish” is the first time any country females have released a song about fishing. And these are just the ones to do it.

“We’ve won fishing tournaments. We went up to Canada a couple months ago and won the Boots & Hearts Bass Classic Fishing Tournament. We were the only girls,” Dye said.

“I caught three little ones and Tae caught the biggest one. We are serious about our fishing, and that’s why when we take guys fishing, and they aren’t being serious about it, we kick them to the curb,” Marlow added. “I grew up fishing, but I’m actually a bigger hunter than I am a fisher. But we both just love being outdoors.”

“I have a picture of me in little rain boots and a diaper, when I’m about two years old, fishing with my dad,” Dye said.
