1. She's a Friend to Animals

If there's one thing Tegan loves more than making music, it's animals. Dogs, cats, horses, rabbits—you name the cuddly creature, Tegan probably adores it. A friend to animals is a friend to us.


2. Her Covers Are Beyond Compare

Tegan's original tracks are great, but she's also the queen of covers. She's shown her incredible range by taking on songs by Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan, Hunter Hayes and more. Her cover of Florida Georgia Line's "H.O.L.Y." has got to be our ultimate fave. Did we mention it has over 10 million views on Facebook? Insane.


3. She's Always Helping Out Her Community

Tegan uses her platform for all sorts of good. Proceeds from her song "Lucky Me" went to benefit the Flint Water Crisis, which is a cause  near and dear to the Flint native's heart. Recently, Tegan teamed up with Radio Disney and other country stars on a track that supports St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.


4. She's as Obsessed With Unicorns as the Rest of Us

You may think you love unicorns, but Tegan's obsession with the mythical creature is beyond anything else. She even dressed up as one for Halloween one year. Isn't she the cutest?


5. Every Country Star Adores Her

From Kelsea Ballerini and Cassadee Pope to RaeLynn and Cam, just about every major country star on the planet is a huge fan of this girl. How could you not be? She's amazing.


6. She's Straight-Up Fashion Goals

Tegan is a total trendsetter when it comes to the outfits she rocks. We want to own literally everything in her closest.


7. She Has a Brand-New, Catchy Song Coming

This Friday, Jan. 19, Tegan's song "Keep It Lit" will take over. A catchy tune about living your best life, the second you hear it you won't be able to get it out of your head. And why would you? Seriously, this is about to be one of 2018's top hits. Get ready, world!
