Maddie & Tae’s Live ‘Die From a Broken Heart’ Video Hurts So Good

This one hurts.

Maddie & Tae‘s black-and-white and acoustic “Die From a Broken Heart” video puts the duo’s vocals — and the pain of their words — in the spotlight.

The song tells the story of a mother-daughter relationship and a particularly excruciating breakup. Of course, mothers have the right answer for any ailment.

“How does he sleep at night? / Momma, the nerve of this guy / To leave me so easy / Am I gonna be alright? / I wanna kick myself for falling so hard / Momma, can you die from a broken heart?” they sing in the chorus.

“We kind of pulled from the pain of the unknown and not feeling the most confident at that time to make it feel real,” the duo’s Maddie Marlow tells Rolling Stone Country. “We wanted listeners to feel the pain of a mom having to hear that her kid is struggling and the pain of the girl getting her heart broken.”
