Contributions to country radio: Maddie & Tae were the inciters of this movement for more women on country radio. Their song was a bold statement, and was so well received that it was carried to No. 1. They opened the discussion about why there really was such a discrepancy between men and women on country radio, and why there still is one, in 2015. They were the trailblazers, and really said what everyone else was too scared to say. Maddie & Tae have also brought a more old school sound back to mainstream country music. Their debut single was slightly more pop and hip hop influenced, in order to slightly parody the bro-country songs out there, but "Fly" and "Shut Up and Fish" have added another layer to country radio.
