Her debut single Paper Roses reached the #1 spot on two Billboard charts, a feat that not only placed her among an elite class of musical royalty, but instantly catapulted her into international superstardom. She is a multiple gold and platinum selling artist and Country Music Award winner, garnering numerous Billboard chart-topping singles and albums, and three New York Times Bestselling books.
She has entertained millions throughout the world through television, radio, film, literature, live concerts, and Broadway performances.

Marie was recently awarded “The Secretary of Defense Medal for Outstanding Public Service” by 4-Star General Bob Brown, US Army Pacific (representing Secretary of Defense James Mattis), during her birthday concert in Hawaii. In 2019 the Hollywood Beauty Awards gave Marie the “Timeless Beauty Award” which is an honor bestowed upon a public figure that has maintained their grace and remained a positive influence and role model to their fans throughout their career.
In August of 2019 Marie and Donny received the Key to the Las Vegas Strip and in October 2019 they cemented their legacy with a star on the Las Vegas Walk of Stars. Marie was previously a co-host on the award-winning daytime show “The Talk.”
Since Marie and brother Donny ended their 11-year residency at the Flamingo in November 2019, she travels the US with her sell-out Symphonic shows. Her performances receive rave reviews. She has also starred in three Lifetime Christmas movies: “The Road Home for Christmas” (2019), “The Christmas Edition” (2020) and most recently “A Fiancé For Christmas” (2021).
Marie’s Top 10 Billboard Country Chart album, “Music is Medicine,” has been the perfect set up for her recently released “Unexpected” studio album which pushed her voice to remarkable heights and debuted #1 on Billboard’s Classical Crossover Albums Chart following its December 2021 release. It spent 24 weeks in the Top 10, having re-entered and re-entered the charts - Marie appropriately named the album because it was such an ‘unexpected’ surprise for her. She says she did it for the fans who allowed her to reach this high. “Unexpected” is dedicated to her father who encouraged Marie to follow her passion and sing every style of music she loved. Marie continues to perform and raise money for children’s hospitals, research, and awareness. She has influenced countless audiences and benefited an innumerable amount of lives worldwide.
