Meghan Trainor is an American musician, singer-songwriter, and producer who has won a Grammy. Her biggest hit was “All About That Bass,” which came out in 2014. She has had a very successful career since then.
Meghan TrainorEarly Years
Meghan Elizabeth Trainor was born on December 22, 1993, on the island of Nantucket in Massachusetts. Kelli and Gary Trainor are both jewelers, and they are her parents. Ryan and Justin are her brothers. Her father was also an organist, and when she was six, she started singing at the Methodist church where her family went.
Her family helped her follow her interest in music and encouraged her to do so. She started writing and recording her songs with the software GarageBand.
Trainor started playing music with the cover band Island Fusion when she was 12 years old. Her father, aunt, and younger brother Justin were also in the band. Her family moved from Nantucket to North Eastham, Massachusetts, when she was in middle school. There, she went to Nauset Regional High School, where she played guitar and trumpet and sang in a jazz band for three years.
Meghan Trainor Career in Music
Trainor put out the music she had written, recorded, produced, and performed herself between the ages of 15 and 17. During this time, she put out three different albums of her work: “Meghan Trainor” in 2009, “I'll Sing with You” in 2011, and “Only 17” in 2013. (2011). She also released the song “Take Care of Our Soldiers” in April 2010. She gave all the money from the music to the United Services Organizations (USO), and Cape Cod Cares for Our Troops.
After going to the Berklee College of Music's Summer Performance Program in 2009 and 2010, Trainor got a full scholarship to go to college there after she graduated from high school in 2012. She instead chose to sign a contract with Big Yellow Dog Music, a music publishing company based in Nashville.
Al Anderson, a former member of NRBQ, told her about Big Yellow Dog after meeting him at a music conference and showed him how good she was at writing songs. Trainor used her songwriting skills with Big Yellow Dog and started her career as a paid songwriter.
One of the main reasons she started as a songwriter instead of a recording artist was that she didn't think she could be successful as a singer. During this time, she moved from Nantucket to Nashville and wrote songs for Hunter Hayes, Sabrina Carpenter, and Rascal Flatts.
Trainor and producer Kevin Kadish wrote the song “All About That Bass” together at the end of 2013. They sent the song to several record companies but all turned it down. Then, Trainor sang the song for L.A. Reid, the head of Epic Records, and almost right away, he signed her to the label. When “All About That Bass” came out on June 30, 2014, it was a big hit.
Not only did the music video go viral, but the song itself was No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for eight weeks. The RIAA called it a diamond after it sold 11 million copies around the world. “All About That Bass” was number one in an incredible 58 countries worldwide.
Trainor's first EP, “Title,” came out in September 2014, right after “All About That Bass” became a hit. Then, in October 2014, she published “Lips Are Movin,” her second single. It had a retro sound like “All About That Bass,” and it got as high as No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100. Before her first studio album with a major label came out, Trainor's three self-released albums were taken off the market.
Her album “Title,” which came out on January 9, 2015, took the place of her EP of the same name, which had been out since 2013. Even though critics gave the album mixed reviews, it went straight to No. 1 on the US Billboard 200 and was later certified triple platinum by the RIAA.
Trainor went on her first headlining concert tour in February 2015. The Australian band Sheppard opened for her on That Bass Tour. Trainor had trouble with a vocal cord hemorrhage for the rest of 2015, and in August of that year, she had surgery to fix it.
Trainor won the Grammy Award for Best New Artist at the 58th Annual Grammy Awards in February 2016. “Thank You” was her second major studio album, which came out in May 2016. The album's first week on the US Billboard 200 chart put it at No. 3 and earned it a platinum rating. “Treat Me” (2020) and “A Very Trainor Christmas” are her other albums (2020).
Meghan Trainor Personal Life
In 2014, Daryl Sabara and Meghan Trainor met at a house party in Los Angeles. They started dating in July 2016, and on December 22, 2017, they got engaged. The following year, on December 22, 2018, Trainor's 25th birthday, they married. The couple found out they had their first child on October 7, 2020.
Meghan Trainor Got Fired?
Trainor made headlines in February 2015 when she told a British tabloid that she was “flat broke” and getting money from her record label. This was shocking news, primarily since her song “All About That Bass” had sold over 6 million copies, and her new song “Lips Are Movin” had just reached No. 1. Trainor just hadn't been paid yet; that was the truth.
Under a typical recording contract, artists have to wait nine months after releasing a song or album before they get their share of the money made. In April 2015, Trainor most likely got an extensive check.
As you'll see in a moment, she made enough money in a year to buy $7 million worth of Los Angeles real estate.
