Megan recorded her inaugural CD under the production of the multi-talented, Grammy award winning John Carter Cash in August of 2007. "The rush of recording at the famed Cash Cabin Studio and actually singing into the microphone that the Man in Black recorded on was a very powerful and humbling experience," said Megan.
When Megan is not writing songs with some of Nashville's most talented songwriters, she is either performing at one of the city's landmark venues or traveling with her talented band where she is delivering spirited, dynamically-packed performances while showcasing her strong vocals and captivating audiences with lyrics that are relatable. After a recent NASCAR concert, a new fan made this comment, "I have been going to NASCAR races for years and haven't seen many singers I liked. Your songs and music matched a lot of things in my life." After every single performance, visibly moved fans tell Megan how they personally identified with the songs that she delivered. On several occasions, confessions have been uttered from "newly won" fans that they were touched so deeply that they were moved to tears...and if you are thinking that only women have made this confession, you may be a bit surprised to learn that even a few men have unabashedly shared this after experiencing one of her shows!
Megan's songs are being played on radio stations around the world and she has been featured in several publications including CountryStarsOnline.com, Today's Country Magazine and in the "Listen Up!" section of Country Weekly Magazine. Megan's show schedule includes fan concerts, anthems and performances for groups of as few as 30 people to over 17 million televised viewers. She is as equally at home in a "listening room" experience as she is in a Nashville honky tonk or performing in front of tens of thousands of animated NASCAR fans.
Her shows include performances with; The Cincinnati Reds, The Indy 500, Atlanta Braves, Watkins Glen International NASCAR, Daytona Coke Zero 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, The Allstate Brickyard 400 Sprint Cup Series, The Kansas City Royals, Tioga Downs Resort and Casino, The Chicago White Sox, and the famed Eddie's Attic in Atlanta, Georgia, where the careers of many notable artists, including Sugarland and John Mayer, were launched. Megan has also performed main-stage with well-known country artists Jason Aldean, Phil Vassar, Heidi Newfield, Julianne Hough, Trent Tomlinson, Travis Tritt and many others.
Whenever her schedule allows, Megan is also quick to accept performance requests for benefit concerts such as those for The American Cancer Society and The SMA Awareness Society. Each year, she also commits time from her busy schedule to planning, co-hosting and securing the entertainment line-up for the annual Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) Pickin' Party Benefit that is held outside of Nashville, Tennessee.
While not on the road, Megan is currently working on a Sophomore album that will be comprised of songs that she has written, as well as a few that she has "discovered" from some well-known writers in Nashville. The album will be available this September.
A wave of momentum has been building for this talented singer/songwriter. If you have a few moments, please look at the 2010 calendar's past and upcoming events and I think you may also want to catch that wave!
