New York City - On January 31, rising country singer Tegan Marie performed a remarkable set at Opry City Stage in the heart of Times Square in New York City.
This event was hosted by her record label, Warner Music Nashville. NASH FM 94.7 radio personality Katie Neal made the opening remarks and introduced Tegan Marie.
She kicked off her mini-concert with a medley of The Band Perry's spitfire "DONE." and Bruno Mars' "24K Magic." She went on to introduce her new song "Roots," where she showcased her ability to yodel towards the end.
The infectious "Hallelujah Boy" was this journalist's personal favorite song in her set since it haf a retro vibe to it, where the listener could recall Trisha Yearwood ("Xxx's And Ooo's") meets Patty Loveless' "(She Drew a Broken Heart)," and that ought to be taken as a major compliment. It is evident that although Tegan Marie just turned 14 years old, she has an old soul.

Tegan Marie showed her sassy side thanks to her latest radio single "Keep It Lit," which resonated well with her Big Apple audience.
After "Smash My Guitar," she delivered a superb cover of Daya's pop hit "Don't Let Me Down," where she made this song her own. Tegan Marie performed this song acoustic, where the listener was afforded the privilege to enjoy her atmospheric voice in its purest form.
