Newcomer Teea Goans is Faithful to her Faith and Traditional Country [VIDEO]
Teea Goans has just released a song that got my attention, because she is singing about her beliefs and faith. As of late, a lot of country’s top singers and songwriters are doing the same. It appears the country fan base wants to hear more and more of what, I refer to as “vertical lyrics”, meaning that they could take a dual meaning.
But not Miss Teea Goans, she goes straight for faiths heart-strings. Her new song is called Letter Form God, take note of the art-work taking place in the back ground it’s pretty cool. Check it out, what do you think?
Miss Goans grew up in rural Missouri, where she says, “we listened to an AM radio station that only played classic country music. When I started to school in the 80s, I didn’t even know who Michael Jackson and Madonna were.” Teea was singing in church at the ripe old age of three and when she turned nine she became a full-fledged member of the nearby Truman Lake Opry where she worked until she turned 17. Goans recalls opening for Bill Anderson, Little Jimmy Dickens and Grandpa Jones.
In September 2002, she says, “I remember the day vividly, it just hit me like a ton of bricks that it was time for me to go to Nashville. I moved into my apartment on Halloween night. I didn’t know a soul in town.” Because she had been a life-long fan of WSM radio the radio home of the Grand Ole Opry, Goans volunteered and worked for free. “The first thing I worked was the Ray Price show at the Ryman Auditorium in I sold T-shirts for him in the lobby.
One frozen day in early January of 2010, Goans got a call from the Opry. Some of the scheduled performers were snowed in. Could she possibly come in and sing on the 7 o’clock show? Goans rushed to the Ryman and stood at the side of stage until Opry matriarch Jean Shepard called her name. She sang “Walk Out Backwards” and “I’m Still Not Over You,” and the crowd loved her. Today you’ll hear her on WSM and KSLI and KEAN and hopefully hundreds of other radio stations across this great country of ours. Teea Goans has stayed true to her beliefs and faith and I truly believe that God is leading her. You go Teea, take this one to the tops. Listen to her sing like an angel.
