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.
In 2002, Teea moved to Nashville, where she began working a variety of jobs before her husband encouraged her to begin writing songs and singing demos for other writers. She began working on the Ray Price show at the Ryman Auditorium in 2006, who asked her to run talent for The Opry warm-up show. Later, she hosted the show Inside The Opry Circle, giving her a fan’s perspective from backstage after the Grand Ole Opry’s Saturday night shows. She first interviewed Garth Brooks and Vince Gill. In January of 2010, she made her Grand Ole Opry debut.
In 2010, she released her debut album, The Way I Remember It. The album is a collection of eleven cover songs. It features songs like “Walking the Floor Over You,” “I’m Still Not Over You,” “I Didn’t Mean to Love You” and “Lying in My Arms.” Her second album, That’s Just Me, features both covers and original material.
