Emily Ann Roberts is set to release her first full-length album, Can’t Hide Country, on Sept. 22.
Recorded at Starstruck Studios and produced by Grammy winner Trent Willmon, the project features collaborations with Ricky Skaggs and Vince Gill, among others, and shows Roberts’ dedication to crafting authentic country music that mirrors what she grew up on. She co-wrote 12 out of the 13 tracks, which reflect on her journey as an artist and a young woman navigating life’s ups and downs through a mix of modern and classic country elements.
“My debut album, Can’t Hide Country feels like finally stepping into who you are. For years I tried to ride the line and please everyone with my music and now all I care about is being honest and sharing stories and moments that mean something real to me,” says Roberts. “If someone needs to know who I am, this record makes it plain and clear. From celebrating the little things in life, to a love beyond my wildest dreams, to anthems for all the ladies in my life about standing up for what they deserve in a relationship, to songs of encouragement to know you’ve got a reason to keep on going, this album takes you through so many emotions and seasons we face in life. I could try to be someone I’m not, but at the end of the day, no matter what I do, I can’t turn it off and I just can’t hide country.”
Additionally, The NBC’s The Voice season nine runner-up graced the Grand Ole Opry stage for the 17th time on Friday (July 14), and stopped by MusicRow in May to share her story as well as some songs featured on the forthcoming collection.
