Meghan Trainor is the new face of Skechers

By Sarah Kelsey

It looks like Meghan Trainor is all about the bass – and Skechers! The multi-talented singer-songwriter has just been announced as the footwear company’s latest brand ambassador.

"I’m very excited to work with Skechers!” the 21-year-old said in a statement. “I’m proud to get behind a company that celebrates style and being true to yourself! The shoes are so comfortable and stylish too. I know my fans will love this campaign.”

Originally from Massachusetts, Meghan began performing in front of crowds at the age of 12. By 17 she had self-released three albums and had won several songwriting competitions and signed a deal with Big Yellow Dog Music to write ballads for Hunter Hayes, Rascal Flatts, R5 and Sabrina Carpenter.

The blond beauty rose to superstardom after releasing her first record-label-supported album, Title. Hits like "Lips Are Movin" and "Dear Future Husband" have since gone platinum and her biggest hit, "All About That Bass," debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 in 2014. She’s currently on tour across the U.S., where she's likely rocking more than a few pairs of Skechers!
