"The melody is stunning and country to the bone," - Emily Ann Roberts
One of Nashville's best kept secrets is now stepping into the spotlight. With a dash of Music City magic and a voice as buttery smooth as her twang Emily Ann Robert teams up with country music titans, Ricky Skaggs and Vince Gill for one of the best songs of the year in Still Searching off her latest album Can't Hide Country.
In a genre we’re all too often are ladies of country music or bogged down by overproduced tracks and lackluster meaning, Still Searching breaking through the noise! Filled with classic country instrumentation the track immediately takes you back to the days of Patsy Cline and Loretta Lynn. The fiddle ridden track shares the universal story of searching for meaning and acceptance. Whether it be a lover or someone else to belive in your dreams, the track strikes a chord with everyone. Perhaps this may be a favorite topic of songwriters on music row, yet Emily delivers it in such a fashion that it feels refreshing in new.
Let’s not ignore the fact that the harmonies of those country music titans Vince Gill and Ricky Skaggs offer up this homie feeling that makes you feel warm and cozy. It’s not often a song can make you feel like this, yet once again Emily and Roberts finds a way to make her music thoroughly engaging to listen to, and taps into acute moments of every day life making them accessible to everybody.
"Still Searching" is the only song on this album that I didn’t write," Emily Ann told All Country News. "Jerry Salley pitched it to me and I was blown away from the very first time I heard it. The melody is stunning and country to the bone. Most of all, the lyrics spoke to how I had been feeling for years in Nashville. I was searching for people who still believed in the country music I wanted to make. If that’s not enough to make this song so special, Ricky Skaggs and Vince Gill sang on this song and took it over the top. Every time I hear it I have to pinch myself because it’s my country music dream come true to hear their voices on my record.
They say that patience is a virtue
Lord, I pray every day that it's true
Waiting's hard when you really don't want to
Is there someone out there I can give my heart to?
Highlighted through powerful lyricism and brilliant melodies, Still Searching is a song you simply won't want to walk away from! Allowing fans to get lost in your artistry is something this genre so desperately needs and damn does Emily Ann Roberts delivers.
