September 13 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm$10 - $20
Emily Hackett speaks the truth. The singer/songwriter raised in Atlanta, GA pulls these emotions into her music, stirring in an authentic blend of self-deprecation that is both unique and refreshing. What poises her against the rest is the soul of a fiery artist ready to light up the stage, all the while still as honest as her Southern roots.
The result of Emily’s insatiable passion is undeniable. In the last few years, Emily has made a splash in the music scene releasing two EPs – As It Comes and Fury, Fear and Heartbreak. In 2013, Emily released an acoustic cover with Megan Davies of Lorde’s hit “Royals.” The response has brought in over a million views on YouTube, was featured on Buzzfeed, won “Best Coffeehouse Cover of 2013” on Sirius XM and reached the final round of “Best Royals Covers” on Ryan Seacrest. In 2014 Emily won the national Belk’s Modern Southern Music Showcase where she played tour dates with artists Lady Antebellum, Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan and Rascal Flatts. In the same line, her duet with Parachute frontman Will Anderson, “Take My Hand (The Wedding Song)” reached over 50k streams on Soundcloud in less than two months and peaked at the No. 4 spot on the iTunes® Singer-Songwriter chart. The music video for the single sits at over 13 million views. The recent and “insatiable” single “Nostalgia” was premiered on Taste of Country and CMT as part of their Artist Discovery program, charted in their 12 Pack Countdown and is in rotation on Radio Disney Country.
