Childhood and youth

Meghan Trainor was born on Nantucket Island, located in the US state of Massachusetts on December 22, 1993. Her father Harry Trainor and Uncle Burton Tony had a direct relationship with music - one worked as a church organist, the other as a recording worker, so the girl from an early age showed interest in musical instruments. At the age of 7, Megan began playing the piano, a little later - on the guitar, ukulele and percussion instruments. The future singer wrote her first song as a child - at 11 years old.

When her intentions became more serious, her parents gave Megan software that allowed them to record their songs. At that time, the girl moved to high school, and she had to combine general education and music - playing the trumpet in a jazz band, singing in the local Island Fusion band, honing her guitar skills.

For two consecutive years - in 2009 and 2010 - Megan was invited as a participant to the 5-week concert program of Berkeley College of Music, where she entered the finals of the songwriting contest.

Thanks to high ambitions and efficiency, Megan recorded a couple of albums with her songs by the time she turned 18 - "Only 17" and "I will sing with you." Parents strongly supported the singer, often drove her to regional conventions for songwriters. Such events allowed young talents to heard, and one of them led Trainor to the first big step in his musical career.


Officially, the singer's creative biography began at the age of 18, when Megan Trainor signed a contract with Big Yellow Dog Music in Nashville. After the deal concluded, the girl's first big dream came true. She realized that she could make a career on her music and lyrics. Big Yellow Dog began offering songs to Trainor to such performers who subsequently won a Grammy award as Rascal Flatts, Sabrina Carpenter and many others.

This track, dedicated to all women whose bodies differ from the ideal parameters of the Barbie doll, in the first month took the top lines in music charts around the world, and the clip gained 1.6 million views on YouTube.
