Tegan Marie, is a singer who like many began putting up singing videos performing covers of her favorite songs. It didn’t take but a couple of videos for Tegan’s charm and voice to captured the attention of many music lovers. She was an instant sensation on the net.
As Tegan continued adding more videos, she also kept adding fans. They loved her voice and who she was as a person. Anyone who has known Tegan from the beginning, knows her dreams were to be a country star one day, and she loved doing things to help other kids. Her dreams are now coming true. They are coming true to an amazingly sweet and talented young lady.
Maybe a year or two after she began adding videos to the internet, Sweety High caught wind of her and things started changing in a big way. Soon after, Tegan was finding herself on Disney Radio and collaborating with some of the biggest country music stars out there. Couple of these stars include Craig Campbell and Kelsea Ballerini. She has also performed on many stages across the country, including an amazing performance at CMA Fest in downtown Nashville. People went crazy for her at this show, Entertainer Of The Year is in her future. She also made her debut performance on the Grand Ole Opry stage.
With Tegan’s dream of being a country music star coming true, one of her other dreams is as well. When Tegan was ten years old, she said she wanted to help as many unfortunate children as possible. It was her dream for people to remember her as the young girl with a great voice who helped them their treatment or who gave them warm clothes. Tegan is now using her new fame to do just that. When her single, Lucky Me came out, she had all the proceeds go to the children’s hospital in Flint, Michigan to help kids that were affected by the water. Tegan is a person of her word.
Tegan’s legacy has now begun. At the age of thirteen, Tegan was signed to Warner Music Nashville, making her the one of the youngest females to sign to a record deal. There’s a small few who have started a country music career at such an early age. Being signed at that age, she now falls in line with other female legends, who began early in life. Dolly Parton had her first single, Puppy Love out at age thirteen through a label in Louisiana. Tanya Tucker was thirteen when Delta Dawn came out in 1972, then LeAnn Rimes at age thirteen as well, with her release of Bill Mack’s song Blue in 1992. Tegan, just beat out Taylor Swift who signed at age fourteen.
Now at age fourteen, Tegan began making more headlines with her brand new song that she co-wrote, Keep It Lit. This song has taken off in a huge way, people love it. The song is basically about starting a relationship and keeping that spark lit which anyone of any age can relate. On January 31, 2018 Tegan became the first artist to perform on the brand new Opry City Stage in New York City. On this stage she performed her new song Keep It Lit to a packed house.
While a small spark can turn into a flame in a relationship, it can also do the same for dreams. Tegan had a dream that she kept lit. Sweety High came along, threw a little gas on that spark of hers and turned it into a flame. When Taylor Swift came on the scene, she set fire to the country and pop charts with no end insight. Now there’s a new fire burning in country music, that fire is Tegan Marie. Now watch Tegan, burn a trail right past Taylor leaving her in a cloud of smoke.
