I could not think of a better person to kick off this new Country Music Chat feature, #OneToWatch other than Social Media Sensation Mary Sarah! I have been following her career for a couple years now and even eView’ed her back in August 2010. She has also been with #CMchat since DAY 1 (May, 9 2011)! Personally, she is one of my top 20 favorite artists of ALL TIME…and she’s only 18!!
If you are on Twitter? You should definitely follow Mary Sarah aka @marysarahmusic! I can’t tell you how many times I was having a bad day, only to see her sweet tweets in my stream and felt the sunlight of her kind spirit.
Know someone you think we should feature? Let us know by submitting your suggestions here.
It would have been Patsy Cline’s 80th birthday on Monday and I love Mary Sarah’s version of Crazy.
ABOUT MARY SARAH
Not many just-turned 15-year olds are invited on stage by a legendary group like the Oak Ridge Boys to sing acapella. The captivated audience in Galveston’s prestigious Opry sat enraptured… then came thunderous applause and a standing ovation for Mary Sarah’s rendition of the 1961 Connie Frances hit, “Where the Boys Are,” a song that most artists of her tender age would not even attempt, much less, know.
At 12, Mary Sarah toured the U.S. for 6 months as a featured lead vocalist and dancer in KidzBop®, a Razor & Tie Records and Vee Corporation production, produced by Michael Anderson in Los Angeles. This was an 18-song rock concert from Kidz Bop albums, which to date have racked up 7 Gold albums, with “kid-friendly” cover versions of hits. The experience from performing in front of 4-6,000 kids per show defined her stage presence and earned her national and global popularity.
After the Kidz Bop tour, Mary Sarah returned to Texas and began performing in local and regional Opry Theatres, Town Squares and Charity fundraisers.
Like many top country artists, Mary Sarah’s first performances were in church at age 8. One advantage of living in Texas is the presence of hundreds of country radio stations and numerous regional Opry Theaters and Mary Sarah has performed in almost all of them multiple times, paying tribute to her heroes – the legends of country music.
