The Stanislaus County Fair has booked award-winning country music duo Maddie & Tae to perform on Monday, July 15 on the Coors Light Variety Free Stage at 8:30 p.m. The concert will be hosted by KAT Country 103 and will be free with the price of Fair admission.

“We are excited to have this sensational young female country duo at our fair this year,” said Adrenna Alkhas, spokesperson for the Stanislaus County Fair. “They have amazing hits that I know our guests are going to love.”

Maddie & Tae became only the third female duo in 70 years to top the country airplay charts, also earning trophies from the Country Music Academy (CMA) and Radio Disney Music Awards along with multiple Academy of Country Music (ACM), CMA and Country Music Television (CMT) Award nominations. Most recently, the platinum selling duo released their new co-written single, “Friends Don’t,” for their upcoming album to be announced on Mercury Nashville.

Maddie & Tae first broke out in 2013 with their brilliant take down of bro-country, “Girl in A Country Song,” which took country radio by storm, skyrocketing to the top of the charts and quickly going platinum.

Madison “Maddie” Marlow and Taylor Dye, both 23, are singers, songwriters and guitarists. Marlow hails from Sugar Land, Texas and Dye from Ada, Okla.

Carrie Underwood will have the pair join her in 2019 for her Cry Pretty 360 Tour next summer and fall.
