“Women Want to Hear Women With Elaina Smith” Featuring Tegan Marie

“Women Want to Hear Women With Elaina Smith” Featuring Tegan Marie

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.
