We’ve been getting some really unique perspectives from female artists since launching Women Want to Hear Women—and this week’s profile is extra special: 14-year-old Tegan Marie.
Tegan is the youngest artist to be signed to a major country label since Tanya Tucker in 1972. Obviously, her experience as a woman in country music has been VERY different from the ladies we’ve profiled so far.
In our sit-down interview, Tegan and I talk about what it’s like being in the spotlight at such a young age, social media, bullies, her music—including new single, “I Know How to Make a Boy Cry”—and, of course, we find out what she thinks about the phrase that kicked off this entire series: “women DON’T want to hear women.”
Tegan also helps me curate this week’s WWTHW playlist and she “Plays It Forward” with a cover of LeAnn Rimes’ “Blue” and a performance of her new single.
Listening to Tegan will put a smile on your face. Hope you enjoy.
