NASHVILLE, TN (September, 13, 2017) – Warner Music Nashville’s Tegan Marie
glowed while attending New York Fashion Week on Monday and Tuesday
(9/11-12). At just 13 years old, her sophisticated sense of style was on
full display while sitting front row at Anna Sui. This fashion bucket
list moment checks another one off the list following her record deal
signing last month. The rising star is the youngest female artist to
sign a major label Country deal in 45 years.
With a larger-than-life voice, the budding singer-songwriter was
discovered by leading Gen Z girls’ media platform Sweety High when her
father uploaded videos of her cover songs to their site. Tegan Marie –
also a Radio Disney Country artist – since catapulted into the national
spotlight with several high-profile media performances and appearances
including ABC’s Good Morning America and PBS’ star-studded special Smokey Robinson: The Gershwin Prize and the 2017 Radio Disney Music Awards.
Last year, the Flint, MI, native released the song, “Lucky Me,” to
benefit the children affected by the water crisis in her hometown.
Continuing the momentum, her breathtaking rendition of Florida Georgia
Line’s #1 hit song, “H.O.L.Y.,” racked up over 17 million views on
Facebook alone. Tegan has amassed over 75 million video views and
receives over five million engagements online each month. She’s also had
a string of impressive performances, sharing the stage with singers
Cam, Smokey Robinson and duetting with Kelsea Ballerini. This past
spring Tegan appeared at CMA Music Festival on the Radio Disney Country
stage and at California’s popular Country music festival Stagecoach to
great acclaim. Critics praised her performance with USA Today
hailing, “[Tegan] Marie has the personality and the voice of a future
star, and she definitely has the always hard-to-define ‘It.’” She
recently wrapped a six-city tour with Pepsi MidAmerica and is currently
writing for her debut album.
