Mercury Nashville duo Maddie & Tae have earned their second career No. 1 with “Die From A Broken Heart,” which the duo’s Maddie Marlow and Taylor Dye co-wrote with Deric Ruttan and Jonathan Singleton. The song topped both the Billboard Country Airplay chart and the Mediabase/Country Aircheck chart.
“Die From A Broken Heart” was also recently certified Platinum by the RIAA. The song marks the duo’s first time reaching No. 1 since “Girl in a Country Song” topped the charts in 2014.
“There are no words. Just leaky eyes and a grateful hearts,” Maddie & Tae said over the weekend via Twitter. “Praise God and His beautiful plan. He has blessed us with the best team and the best fans. Gotta go, my eyes are leaking again.”
“If even one person out there found healing from this song, THAT is success to us,” the duo added via a statement.
Maren Morris, Gabby Barrett, Ingrid Andress, Carly Pearce and Miranda Lambert are among the other female artists who have topped the country radio charts in 2020.
Morris earned a two-week No. 1 “The Bones,” while other chart-toppers included Barrett’s “I Hope” and Lambert’s “Bluebird.” Andress scored a No. 1 single on the Mediabase/Country Aircheck chart with “More Hearts Than Mine.” Pearce reached the pinnacle with “I Hope You’re Happy Now” (with Lee Brice), while Gwen Stefani earned her first country No. 1 with her duet with Blake Shelton, “Nobody But You.”
