Maggie has released quite a few songs, including "If I Was Gonna Go," and "Pretty on the Inside," as stated in her personal website.

SHE LOVES BOTH FIELDS

When asked if she prefers one field over the other, the aspiring country singer said that neither medicine nor country music is her fall-back plan.

She said she loves both fields and that she is excited where each will take her. She added that she would focus on her music for a while before going to medical school.

Pat Sajak, who gained global recognition as a "Wheel of Fortune" host, shares Maggie and a son with his wife of three decades, Lesly Brown.

Sajak married his first wife, Sherrill James, in 1979, but the relationship deteriorated over lack of quality time and conflicting personalities until they divorced in 1986.

He married his second wife Lesly Brown three years later, and together they have two children: son Patrick, born in 1990, and daughter Maggie, born in 1995.
