Maddie & Tae played their new song on a Southwest flight 35,000 feet up in the air

Every country artist should certainly pay their dues, but Maddie and Tae definitely put themselves in a compromising position recently as they went up 35,000 feet on a Southwest Airlines flight to play their new single “Fly”. “This is something we will tell our kids about,” they said to the crowd in attendance — which was thankfully mostly country music fans.

With guitars that barely fit between the seats and their guitarist standing just outside the plane’s lavatory, Maddie & Tae proceeded with the song, which is a follow-up to their popular “Girl in a Country Song” debut.

And while the video of their up in the air experience was certainly memorable, the duo decided to release the official video for “Fly”, a visual masterpiece that truly brings the empowering ballad to life.

“We were both so scared when we came to Nashville to chase this dream,” said Maddie Marlow in a recent press release. “How many days did I look out the window and want to run home ‘cause the world was so big and things were going wrong? But I also knew if I ran away, my dream would never happen. It was being brave when I didn’t even know why or how that somehow brought us to here, which is exactly why we wrote the song.”
