Maddie & Tae are nominated for Vocal Duo of the Year going into this Wednesday’s CMA Awards, and if they win, they’ll each have a matched pair: They won the Video of the Year trophy in 2015 for “Girl in a Country Song.”  But if you went to their houses, you wouldn’t see those trophies on display in an obvious spot.

“It’s sitting next to my Keurig in my kitchen…I didn’t wanna put it front-and-center ’cause I just feel weird about that,” Tae tells ABC Radio about where her CMA trophy lives in her house. “We’re thankful, but…”

“You don’t wanna be annoying about it,” Maddie finishes.  She keeps hers on a shelf in a little office/music room in her house.

But another CMA win would require some redecorating, say the girls.  “That would go on my mantle and that would be annoying,” laughs Maddy.

“Yeah, ’cause you gotta have that even look,” Tae adds. “I would put it on my bookshelf, I think.”

Maddy vows, “If we ever win Vocal Duo of the Year, that one’s gonna be, like, front-and-center of the house, for sure.”

Tune in to the CMA Awards Wednesday night at 8 p.m. ET on ABC to see if Maddie & Tae win, and also to catch a glimpse of their red carpet outfits, which they describe as “ethereal old Hollywood glam.”
