Megan Danielle grew up in Douglasville Georgia with 2 sisters and a brother where they did everything together. From watching their Grandpa and Uncles at the racetrack, playing ball, corn hole, and spending lots of time together. Megan says, “I am really big on family, we are all so close and do just about everything together. My grandparents mean everything to me; they have always been there. I lost my Grandpa about 2 years ago and miss him greatly. He really influenced me to become a better version of myself and pursue music.”
Growing up, Megan had always heard about God but didn’t really know who He was. Her faith became real and a vital part of her life when she was 18 years old and started to attend church on a regular basis.
Music has always been a strong presence in Megan’s life. Megan says, “since I was a little girl I have always enjoyed listening to music and singing along to anything I’d hear. I was always so shy to pursue it but eventually around the age of 15, I booked my own show at a restaurant in Douglasville. Then at the age of 18, I was singing anywhere I could…in bars, venues, and any place that would have me. I always knew I wasn’t living up to my full potential and then one night at a show, my Grandpa really influenced me to follow my calling. It was at that time, ironically, I quit performing altogether to learn more about myself, about God and what plans He had for my life.”
About a year ago, Megan received a message from a producer on Instagram asking if she’d want to audition for American Idol. While hesitant at first, with the encouragement from friends and family she auditioned and ended up placing 2nd in the final competition which has certainly changed her life and trajectory for the future. Megan’s performances throughout the American Idol experience showed a vast array of musical styles and influences including Miranda Lambert, Lauren Daigle, Chris Stapleton, Zach Williams, Patty Griffin, Fleetwood Mac and more. Although just 21 years old, Megan is a deep soul with a lot of life experiences to draw upon which will make for an exhilarating journey as she develops as an artist for years to come.
Megan’s first official single post-American Idol, “Dream Girl” is available now. Megan is writing with some of the industry’s best writers preparing for more music releases and will be touring throughout the summer and fall of 2023.
