OPRY NEXTSTAGE PRESENTS TEGAN MARIE: IN THE MAKING, a four-part docu-series, which traces the path of Warner Music Nashville and Sweety High Country sensation TEGAN MARIE’s launch to stardom, is officially out. 

Created as part of the Grand Ole Opry’s latest year-long collaboration with four hand-picked rising Country artists (Riley Green, Tegan Marie, Tenille Townes, Travis Denning), the in-depth series was filmed over the last two years and features many of Tegan’s milestone moments to date – including the day she signed her record deal with Warner Music Nashville (making her the youngest major label artist in over 45 years), her Grand Ole Opry and NBC’s TODAY debuts, as well as her Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade appearance.

The 4-part series rolled out over the last month, with a new installment debuting each week.

•  Part 1 – the day she signed with Warner Music Nashville + her first trip to Music City
•  Part 2 – her Grand Ole Opry debut + the exciting release of her debut song, “Keep It Lit”
•  Part 3 – her NBC’s TODAY debut + her iconic Empire State Building rooftop performance
•  Part 4 – the day she was asked to be an Opry NextStage artist + her acting debut
The series depicts Tegan as both a regular teenage girl and an emerging Country talent, while giving fans just a taste of what’s to come – and there’s a lot more where that came from. 

The 15-year-old will hit the road later this month, opening a series of shows for HUNTER HAYES on his CLOSER TO YOU  (see dates below). She has also been working with Nathan Chapman (Taylor Swift) and Scott Hendricks (Blake Shelton) on new music and is set to release a fresh tune later this month.

With a larger-than-life voice, Tegan Marie, 15, was discovered by girls’ media platform Sweety High and went on to become the youngest female to sign to a major Country label (Warner Music Nashville) in 45 years. Since first breaking out onto the scene, she’s catapulted into the national spotlight with performances on ABC’s Good Morning America, NBC’s TODAY and PBS’ Smokey Robinson: The Gershwin Prize, in addition to appearances on the Radio Disney Music Awards (2017-18). As her videos continue to gain a wide audience (over 200 MILLION views), Tegan Marie has performed at the Grand Ole Opry, Ryman Auditorium, StagecoachCMA Music Fest, and shared the stage with artists such as Cam, Hunter Hayes and Kelsea Ballerini while partnering with Pepsi MidAmerica for a tour across the Midwest. Critics took notice of the young star’s talent with BillboardHuffPost and Rolling Stone naming her in their 2018 watch lists and 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’.”
