Maddie and Tae are currently touring with Brad Paisley headlining the Life Amplified World Tour. During their visit, Maddie and Tae entertained the patents at LCH by answering a variety of patient’s questions, played a game, took pictures, and signed autographs. We learned many new things about best friends, Maddie and Tae, during their interview. One of the very first questions asked to the duo was about their favorite moment on tour thus far. Maddie and Tae answered by saying, “Going on stage every night during Brad Paisley's set to sing 'Whiskey Lullaby' with him”.
We found out that in addition to being amazingly talented artists, these lovely ladies also have their fair share of hidden talents. Tae said her secret talent is that she can solve a rubix cube with her best time being 1 minute and 48 seconds. We learned that Maddie can make really good spaghetti, is very crafty, and is also good at gardening. Together they also have perfected the talent of saying one-liners in sync!
They also showed our patients and families some of their handshakes they do together and with their fellow band members before each show. A question asked by a patient about what their favorite holiday was, sparked Maddie and Tae to share that they would love to do a Christmas album one day. They also fangirled over Michael Buble and his Christmas album. Both girls said they would love to be on a song with Buble one day.
Maddie and Tae also played a game with our patients and families called “Guess That Country Song”. The ladies where asked to guess the name of a song by reading the lyrics. Many times they had to start singing the song before the name of the song and artist came to them. They did a great job during the game and only got stumped on two of the songs! Maddie and Tae put a smile on so many patients' faces, and afterwards even took time out of their busy schedule to take pictures with each special patient. The ladies also autographed everything from the pictures to patient's casts!
We want to give a huge thanks to Maddie and Tae for their visit to Seacrest Studios at Levine Children’s Hospital.
