Tegan Marie to Make Her National Morning TV debut on Good Morning America

Tegan Marie

With a larger-than-life voice, 12-year-old country music sensation Tegan Marie will make her national morning TV debut on Monday (8/29) with “Lucky Me” on ABC’s Good Morning America airing from 7-9 a.m. EDT/PDT. A native of Flint, MI, the burgeoning philanthropist continues to donate 100% of the proceeds from the song to the kids in her hometown directly affected by the water crisis. Prior to Tegan’s TV appearance, she can be seen on the Hess Stage, hosted by Radio Disney, at the renowned Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day in Flushing Meadows, NY, on Saturday (8/27).

Tegan stunned listeners this summer when she released her breathtaking rendition of Florida Georgia Line’s #1 smash-hit, “H.O.L.Y.” Within three weeks it garnered over 15 million views on Facebook, made Florida Georgia Line “misty-eyed” and was featured in Us Weekly’s “Buzzzz-o-Meter” column. She has also been incredibly well-received by critics. Country Rebel noted, “At only 12-years-old, Tegan Marie is proving that she could not only be the next young star in country music, but the next big star period.” RARE Country added, “If you remember the shock we all felt when a 13-year-old LeAnn Rimes first hit the country scene with ‘Blue’ back in the mid-‘90s, then you’ll appreciate how rare a talent we’ve got in Tegan.”

Her exceptional talent also recently 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. Tegan rose to the occasion and didn’t let her home team down. RARE Country hailed, “The national anthem is considered by many singers to be one of the hardest songs to perform, but it was a piece of cake for Tegan.”
