Tegan Marie is a very busy 12-year-old girl! She's singing with Kelsea Ballerini, shooting music videos and recording covers of country hits, which she then uploads to the internet and impresses everyone with. In this video, she tries out Maddie & Tae's song "Downside of Growing Up" in her bedroom.

It's a casual cover, with Tegan Marie just sitting on her bed, a simple track behind her as she sings. But her voice flows effortlessly. The Maddie & Tae cover is perfect for her sound, and it even suits her age. It's obvious from just one listen that she connects with the track on more than just a vocal level.

Outside of covers, Tegan Marie, devotes a lot of time to writing her own new material. When she posted this cover to her Facebook page, she told fans she would be traveling to Nashville to record a new single. We can't wait to see what's next for the little girl with a big voice while she gets to work in Music City.

You may remember Tegan Marie as the pre-teen who covered a Kelsea Ballerini song and then got to actually sing it alongside the rising star. Tegan Marie spends time performing on stages nationwide, and she's worked hard to get there. All that hard work is paying off — she's earned more than 770,000 views just on YouTube alone. Keep up the good work, Tegan Marie, we can't wait to hear what you come up with next!
