Everyone should have a hero. Everyone should have someone to look up to and immortalize; someone to show them the ropes and help them discover why something is worth doing in the first place.
And for rising country stars Maddie & Tae, that musical hero has long been country music legend Lee Ann Womack.
Of course, not everyone gets to meet their hero and sing with their hero and listen as their hero spouts accolade after accolade toward them…unless you’re Maddie & Tae on a Tuesday night in Nashville.
“I just want to say one thing about these girls,” Womack said at Maddie & Tae’s much anticipated album release party for their upcoming album “Start Here.” “They came on my radar about a year ago when I started digging a little deeper with them. The thing I love most about these girls right here is that at a time when so much focus is on other things, these girls seem to focus on the music and that is so important and very special.”
Womack was on hand to sing her 1998 hit “A Little Past Little Rock” with the country duo who have been impressing many with songs such as “Girl in a Country Song” and their gorgeous current single “Fly.”
