"Badger High grad on her way to Hollywood for 'American Idol'"

TWIN LAKES -- Growing up in Twin Lakes, Megan Pflueger became a talented fixture on the local Idol circuit.

The 2004 Badger High grad competed in the Walworth County Fair's Country Idol contest, in the Geneva Idol contest sponsored by the Geneva Lake Women's Association and even auditioned in 2008 for NBC’s “Nashville Star.”

And it's no surprise that Pflueger used all of those experiences as a tune-up for the big one, Fox's "American Idol."

Pflueger, who now lives in Nashville, made the first cut of auditions and is on her way to Hollywood in season 10 of the show.

"When I was about 16 years old was when I decided that OK, this is for real," Pflueger said in a video posted on

Pflueger admits Nashville is a tough, but she also admits she's not the average singer is this famously country town. Although Patsy Cline is her favorite singer, she has a little Guns N' Roses, AC/DC and Joan Jet in her repertoire

Not only does she credit her family -- mom, dad, grandma and her brother -- for encouraging her career, but some younger kids have inspired her, too. Pflueger began babysitting when she was 11, and has found inspiration in those you faces, too, she says.

"American Idol" continues Wednesday at 7 p.m. with auditions from Austin, Texas.

Home town: Twin Lakes

Local celebrity: Since she was a little girl, Pflueger has competed in singing contests in the area. She's appeared in the Walworth County Country Idol contest and performed at Country Thunder. She has competed in Geneva Idol since its inception in 2004, when she sang Patsy Cline’s “Crazy.” She placed every year until capturing the Geneva Idol title in 2006 with “Blame it on Your Cheating Heart,” by Patty Loveless. Pflueger is chasing down her dream of becoming a country music star, and the local contests provided her much-needed exposure, she told the Gazette in 2008.

Favorite songstress: Pasty Cline.

"'American Idol' Nashville contestant Megan Pflueger lets her singing do the talking"

Megan Pflueger didn't have a lot to say after she left the American Idol auditions in Nashville Saturday, though the fact that she left through the "winners' door" spoke volumes.

And Megan's got a pretty big digital footprint. She was a veteran of talent contests in her native Wisconsin before moving to Nashville. She now has a MySpage page with original tunes and a YouTube channel with several performance clips. She even got to sing Patsy Cline's Crazy (one of her favorites) while sitting in with the Charlie Daniels Band, and you can watch that performance below:

Megan will also be performing this weekend at Roxy's Live at Sam's Town Hotel & Gambling Hall in Tunica, Miss.

Currently working on tracks.....TBA



My name is Megan Pflueger. I am the lead singer of the band. I moved to Nashville four years ago to pursue my singing career and quickly became a popular entertainer on Broadway. I have really been focusing on writing and co-writing songs to release on a cd as soon as possible. I would consider my genre as pop/rock but I definitely love more 80's rock type style. I play with a great group of guys that play with established artists primarily. I love performing on Broadway in Nashville and other various bars but would love to travel more!! I play alot of cover band gigs in Nashville but love performing my originals that rock. In the meantime, just trying to get by as a broke musician doing what I love. I have such an amazing following and supportive fans, friends and family. I am a truly grateful, down to earth person and entertainer and I am thankful for every day that I get to play music.
