Emi Sunshine first blew us away with her rooster Tom Cruise at CXCW2013, back then she was eight-years-old, so that makes her 10 now (Happy Birthday by the way Emi, sorry we missed it). She then blew us away again at CXCW2014 with two original tunes, jumping around on her greatgrandma’s couch while Little Pig ran around it. We then started seeing things like Emi Sunshine appearing on The Today Show, and getting a standing ovation during her debut appearance on The Grand Ol’ Opry. Speaking of the Grand Ol’ Opry, that’s where Emi joins us from tonight, backstage at the Grand Ol’ Opry…maybe one of our coolest CXCW locations yet. She is joined by her Perfect Joy Revival band (Emi’s Brother John Hamilton on mandolin, Emi’s Dad, Big Diddy Randall Hamilton on bass, Uncle Bobby Hill on Drums, and Lucas Garner on banjo), her BFF Kayla, and the “Empress of Appalachian Rock And Roll” Chelle Rose. Here she is, from Madisonville, Tennessee, playing live from the backstage of the Grand Ol’ Opry….Emi Sunshine!
Emi sent us another video saying she had so much fun with the other one. Here she is joined again by her BFF Kayla as they head South East back to Madisonville, I’m guessing. Here she is with an outstanding performance of “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry” from the rear view mirror. We hope this is not Emi’s way of saying she is putting CXCW behind her! Please don’t forget us on your way up Emi!
