About Emily Ann Roberts

They say the path to the grandest stage is paved with relentless practice, and Emily Ann Roberts embodies this mantra. From humble performances on small Knoxville stages to gracing the illustrious Grand Ole Opry platform almost 20 times, Roberts has diligently earned her place in the spotlight. Her journey began on Blake Shelton's team on The Voice, a remarkable feat achieved even before completing high school. Roberts has accumulated a wealth of performing, songwriting and recording experiences.

This dedication has translated into over 40 million streams, solidifying her status as a prominent artist. Nine years later, her growth and hard-work prompted an invitation from her former coach Shelton to join his 2024 17-date arena Back to the Honky Tonk Tour. Notably, CMT, Country Now, Music Mayhem Magazine, All Country News, and others have earmarked her as a significant artist to watch in 2024.

Rooted in East Tennessee, Roberts draws inspiration from the rich tapestry of Smoky Mountain music, bluegrass virtuosos, and country legends spanning generations—from Loretta Lynn and Dolly Parton to Miranda Lambert and Cody Johnson. This diverse upbringing uniquely positions her to reintroduce authenticity to country music, a mission evident in her debut full-length record, Can't Hide Country, released on September 22.

Recorded at Starstruck Studios in Nashville and produced by GRAMMY-winning maestro Trent Willmon, Emily Ann's lyrics, brimming with honesty, coupled with her exceptional vocal prowess, have garnered widespread acclaim from both the media and her devoted fanbase. Country music stalwarts, Grady Smith and Saving Country Music's Trigger, each bestowed her album with a top-three ranking on their 2023 Best Albums lists. It is undeniably evident that country music is in capable hands with Emily Ann Roberts steering the ship.
