Tegan Marie Facebook
Florida Georgia Line‘s latest single “H.O.L.Y.” is one of the hottest songs in country music right now, resulting in a string of covers from other artists and fans as well. But one young girl just blew every other cover out of the water, and it seems like you’ll be hearing her name a lot from now on.
Born in Michigan, Tegan Marie had a gift for music from early on. She started writing songs by the time she was eight years old, and has gathered a large following on her YouTube channel. She frequently covers country hits, and has wowed in the past with her covers of Carrie Underwood, Sugarland, and The Dixie Chicks, just to name a few.
Through her talented covers, Tegan has had millions of people watch her videos and has a following of approximately 270,000 on Facebook alone. Now, the talented 12-year-old is set to gain even more fans after her cover of Florida Georgia Line’s “H.O.L.Y” went viral.
Standing in a room with the camera focused on her face, your jaw will drop the second you hear Tegan sing the first note. Beyond the raw beauty of her voice, Tegan has so much control over her tone, something that takes even the greatest singers years to master. She’s also conquered another key aspect of performing, and that is being able to put emotion into the song you sing. As you watch Tegan, it’s clear that she’s connected to every single lyric, making her performance truly remarkable.
Tegan’s cover has touched so many people since she shared it on Thursday, and it has since gone viral. The Bobby Bones Show wrote a short article about it, and even Florida Georgia Line themselves shared the young star’s beautiful cover.
“Talk about gettin misty eyed,” they wrote as a caption to the video.
Since Tegan first posted the video, it has generated over eight million views on Facebook and counting. You can check it out yourself in the video below.
Tegan is not only set to become one of country music’s next big stars…she already is!
