Nashville, Here I Come

August 7, 2020

I just found out that I’m going to Nashville, Tennessee, next month and having my song recorded professionally by a producer who has worked with Keith-freaking-Urban and several members from the show “Nashville.”

When this picture was taken back in April, 2019—when my song was first performed locally—I never dreamed that anything like this was ever possible. And yet, here I am.

I’m going to Nashville!!! I think my husband might have to come peel me off the ceiling now.

About Marie de Haan

Marie is a gifted pianist, playing since the age of nine. As a teenager, she composed mainly instrumental piano music. She released her powerful debut single, “I Am Broken,” on October 22, 2020, a song whose creation drew heavily upon the trauma she endured as a victim of childhood sexual abuse. Marie held a benefit concert on September 10, 2021, in Skagit County. A portion of the proceeds went to CrossRoads Youth Ranch; this local organization—through equine therapy—empowers “at-risk and sexually exploited youth to heal, grow, and thrive.” She has continued to write music: Christian, folk, and country. Marie loves hiking, gardening, and photography. The Pacific Northwest—where she lives with her husband—is the backdrop for her favorite activities.
