got in Tegan.” Her exceptional talent also caught the attention of the
U.S. Women’s Soccer Team as they invited her to perform the national anthem at their last home game before the Olympics. Following her CMA Music Festival performance on the Radio Disney Country stage in June, Tegan Marie opened for country stars Hunter Hayes and Cassadee Pope.
