Emily Hackett was recently named one of CMT’s Next Women of Country 2019, as well as one of The Boot’s Artists to Watch in 2018, and Rolling Stone’s 10 New Country Artists You Need to Know earlier this year. She also released her By the Sun EP to rave reviews and appeared in dozens of interviews with top-tier country sites. Needless to say, Emily crushed it this year, and we think her soulful, classic cover is the perfect way to send off 2018.
She has re-released her 2017 cover of John Lennon’s “Happy XMAS (War Is Over”). No matter what genre’ you like best, this is an awesome song. And, country artist Emily Hackett has certainly done a great job with both the song, and the heartwarming lyric video.
Emily recently released her debut EP, By The Sun. “[By The Sun] are the songs that take full and honest ownership of who I am and how you’d meet me on the street,” said Emily in a recent interview with Ladygunn Magazine. “They all encourage authenticity and staying true to yourself and what made you, including the times you have to laugh at yourself a bit.”
Her EP, By The Sun, is a smart meeting-point between early-Aughts pop, country’s current genre playfulness and the one-name women of the Nineties (Faith, Trisha, Shania), with plenty of room for both tender and tongue-in-cheek confessionals.” – Marissa R. Moss, Rolling Stone
