Considering both Florida Georgina Line and Maddie & Tae share a record label, it was only a matter of time before someone asked what the latter thought of the other one and leave it to Saving Country Music to find it. He pointed out an article written by The Chicago Tribune where they are asked point blank their opinion of the song and their response was naturally defensive.
Some hight lights from the article:.
” When The Chicago Tribune interviewed Florida Georgia Line’s Brian Kelley earlier this week, his ability to laugh at himself, or Maddie & Tae’s “Girl In A Country Song” specifically, seemed quite elusive. Writer Allison Stewart characterized Maddie & Tae questions to Kelley as “…the only ones Kelley, in a recent phoner, doesn’t sound happy to answer.”
When The Chicago Tribune first asks about “Girl In A Country Song”, Kelley plays dumb. “I’m not really familiar with that,” he says.
But when nudged a little further by Allison Stewart, who says “They sing it from the point of view of the girl in the cut-off jeans, who never gets to talk? You’ve never heard that song?”
Brian Kelley answers, “All I’m gonna say about that is, I don’t know one girl who doesn’t want to be a girl in a country song. That’s all I’m gonna say to you. That’s it.”
With the way their concerts and music sells, maybe he's right?
