  • Maddie & Tae ‘Start Here’ with highly anticipated debut LP

    By Brandy McDonnell Features Writer bmcdonnell@oklahoman.com  | Published: Fri, Aug 28, 2015

    When Maddie Marlow and Tae Dye warble about dumping an annoying fishing buddy out of the boat on their new album, the hilariously catchy lyrics can't help but snare a little truth. That's because their feisty ditty “Shut up and Fish” is loosely based on a real-life incident that took place in Dye's home state of Oklahoma. “We took two of Tae's guy friends — friends, by the way — fishing with us, and they just had no idea what they were doing and were talking the whole time and being annoying and trying to bust moves. So, it really did come from a real place and a true story, unfortunately,” Marlow said.  “We did not catch anything because they were awful, but we did get a cool little song out of it.

  • Kyle Reid shares his cigar box ballads (Stair-A-Okie Performance)

    Nathan Poppe | Updated: 19 hr ago

    You can't smoke cigars in The Oklahoman building like I imagine my journalistic ancestors would've, but there's no rule against cigar box guitars. That's Oklahoma-based singer/songwriter Kyle Reid up above. He visited the newsroom for our second staircase concert installment and played material from his latest album "It's Alright...". Interesting note: he makes those instruments by hand and released that album's worth of acoustic jams in May. Not too shabby for a guitar with three strings, right? This performance isn't as rowdy as when Kyle plays with his Low Swingin' Chariots backing band, but I think that's a good thing. Lean your chair back and enjoy it. Like Reid said
