She and Madison met when they were 15 through a mutual vocal coach. They then began working with songwriter Aaron Scherz under the name Sweet Aliana.
Her and Madison's hit single, "Girl in a Country Song," is a criticism of the "bro-country trend." The song peaked at #4 on the US Country singles chart and #1 on the US Country Airplay singles chart.
She is from Ada, Oklahoma and moved to Nashville after high school. She has featured photos of her parents as well as her brothers on her Instagram account. She got engaged to Josh Kerr in 2019 and the two tied the knot on February 21, 2020. She previously dated fellow country singer Jackie Lee.
Maddie & Tae toured with Dierks Bentley in 2015.
