With a No. 1 single to their name and another Top 10 currently at radio, Maddie & Tae are ready for the deep end with their new single, “Shut Up and Fish.” The tune off their debut album, Start Here and was co-written by the CMA-nominated Vocal Duo of the Year.
If you thought “Girl In a Country Song” was sassy, then listen extra careful to Maddie & Tae describe a fishing trip with a new beau who’s looking to do almost anything other than fishing. “Girl In a Country Song” was a strong start out of the gate for these two, but “Shut Up and Fish” is a “we’re here to stay and you better pay attention” battle cry.
That being said, it is an upbeat, fun song that captures the dynamic personalities of both singers and their unique point of view(s)– they actually want to be fishing– no matter how cute the guy is.
Oh I was fishing he was wishing
We were kissing I was getting
Madder than a hornet in an old coke can
Getting closer sliding over
Crowding up my casting shoulder
Trying to reach out and hold my reeling hand
Saying I’m pretty saying he’s in love
And how it don’t get any better than this
I say yeah it could
Boy if you would
Shut up and fish
It should be noted that Maddie & Tae really do like to fish.
So we did the Celebrity Boots and Hearts Bass Classic fishing tournament today! The only girls to participate got 2nd place overall and 1st PLACE for biggest bass! I caught 3 and Tae caught 1 and it was the BIGGEST bass of the whole tournament! Shut up & Fish boys ;) #smallmouthbass #canada Tae’s fish was 5.7 lbs!!!!! I caught 3 and the one I’m holding was 4.5 :)
Maddie & Tae will be performing at the 49th Annual CMA Awards, where they are also up for three awards.
