Teea Goans At Grand Ole Opry Country Music Show - Nashville
Growing up in the rural town of Lowry City, Missouri affected the musical career of country singer Teea Goans. By the time she turned three, she was singing in her church. At eight years, she performed in a local contest by the Truman Lake Opry and, a year later, she was a full-fledged member. She played there every week until she turned seventeen, when she began opening at the Grand Ole Opry for acts like Bill Anderson, Little Jimmy Dickens and Grandpa Jones. She has listed her grandmother as her primary musical influence. The late Della Lee Faulkner was a locally popular singer in the 1960s who chose to take care of her seven children over a career in Nashville.
