- Every Night, Every Morning
Maddie & Tae are on the rise in not only the country music industry, but in the music industry full stop, and as we as a site unveiled our own thoughts in the review of Through the Madness, Vol. 1, the duo has since dropped another musical offering in the meantime- new single ‘Every Night, Every Morning’. While Maddie Font and Taylor Kerr aren’t necessarily as popular as another other group/duo in the realms of country music (listeners are more familiar with artists like Florida Georgia Line, Lady A, Rascal Flatts, Dan + Shay & Little Big Town, more so than this female duo), they have nevertheless been steadily working hard, and as we can see in our review of Through the Madness, Vol. 1, both Maddie and Tae have presented a career full of female empowerment and encouragement, as the 8 songs on their long-ish EP reminded us of themes and messages that we as people (and more specifically, young women) needed to hear, especially during a time of today where people’s opinion about themselves is affected greatly by whatever is seen on social media. Songs like ‘The Other Side’, ‘Strangers’ and ‘Don’t Make Her Look Dumb’ highlighted the 8 track album, and now, a few more months into 2022, the duo are at it again with ‘Every Night, Every Morning’- while it still remains to be seen if this song is just a single, or is somehow tied to Through the Madness, Vol. 2; ‘Every Night, Every Morning’ still hits all the right notes now, when it comes to a song by this duo that is going to be uplifting, emotional and encouraging.
A song that can hopefully become the first step towards Through the Madness, Vol. 2 whenever that arises, Maddie Font & Taylor Kerr have delivered a song worthy of at least one listen through, as we see this message of unconditional love, and a love that lasts for years and years, that never fades when everything else around starts to; is explored through this track. The female persona is stating to her significant other that ‘…every night and every morning, I fall all over again and again and you don’t even know it, baby, if you’re wonderin’ when you hold me if I still feel forever, only every night and every morning…’, and we are listeners, are poised to ask the question to our own significant others- do we have a love shown in the song, and can we say to our significant others that we are thinking about them every night and every morning? Do we take ourselves not too seriously, and can we partake in small talk with our significant others, without it feeling like a chore or even a bore? Let us hope, pray and take active steps for our love for each other, to emulate what is shown in the song, and maybe, just maybe, we can act a little more selflessly and conduct ourselves more humbly, every night and every morning, as we seek to make our relationships (be it romantic or even platonic) all the better in the process. Well done Maddie Font and Taylor Kerr for this enjoyable song. Looking forward to Through the Madness, Vol. 2 when that comes later on during the year.
