Life and career[edit]

Sajak grew up in the Severna Park, Maryland area. She began playing the guitar at age 12. In 2011, she released her first single "First Kiss", an upbeat country pop song.[3] The music video for "First Kiss" was directed by CMT Music Award winning director Trey Fanjoy in Nashville, Tennessee.[4] Sajak's video was featured on the January 3, 2012 episode of Wheel of Fortune as a tribute to her 17th birthday. Maggie Sajak recently recorded a song in Nashville called "Live Out Loud" to honor Muriel Walters, a teenage girl in Maryland currently battling terminal cancer.
