“‘As simple as it sounds, we all must try to be the best person we can: by making the best choices, by making the most of the talents we’ve been given.’” A quote by Mary Lou Retton is what Megan Conner lives her life by. “A firecracker,” “raw emotion,” “pure energy,” all of these have been used to describe Megan Conner's writing and performing. The story of how she found herself in the music industry is an interesting one for sure… Megan was born in North Carolina, grew up in Texas, and then headed to NYC after graduating from Baylor University with a degree in Theater Performance. She moved to New York for theater, but quickly found a job in the fitness business and fell in love with that industry. “To see people changing themselves from the inside out and being a part of that is such a blessing.” Megan began training and teaching all over NYC, eventually managed a gym in midtown, created a triathlon club, and competed in triathlon, marathon and duathlon races. She is a nationally recognized fitness instructor and has been featured in Elle magazine, Private Clubs Magazine and was just dubbed one of Nashville's Top Personal Trainers in The Nashville Scene's Best Of 2015. When in NYC, the spin class that she developed was dubbed “spinertainment” where she used her performance skills to entertain as well as give people a great workout. Music execs took her classes noticed her as a natural entertainer and motivator, and encouraged her to move down to Nashville to pursue her dream. Megan hit Nashville running, and hasn’t stopped since! She has had songs recorded by Rascal Flatts, Chris Young, The Swon Brothers, Danny Gokey, Jonny Diaz and numerous independent and international artists. Megan is also in the rock/rootsy duo Paperhouse with duo partner Shane Hines. She has a personal philosophy on which she is building her life and her career. “I hope to continue to grow while touching the lives of others through my music and my life. No matter if there are 5,000 people or 5 people in the room that I’m performing in or sharing songs with – if I connect with just one person, then I consider my job done.” Megan has had publishing deals in New York City and Nashville and now is happy to join the Demolition family!
