Emi Sunshine – Carry Me Home / I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry

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!

  1. Hey Matt, This is great … thanks for sharing.
    btw, that’s not “Uncle John” in the backstage at The Opry on the couch video, that is Emi’s Brother John (Johnathon Letner Hamilton)on the mandolin. Emi’s Dad, Big Diddy Randall Hamilton on bass, Uncle Bobby Hill on Drum, and newest member of The Rain, Lucas Garner on banjo. Stoked to see my friend, Chelle Rose, joining in on the backstage couch jam!

  5. Emi Sunshine is the real deal. A true Talent to brighten up your day. Chelle Rose ain’t no slouch either! Her group, “the Rain” should be called “the Blue Sky” instead, because they bring so much to the music, they don’t rain on Emi, they contrast beautifully and brighten the already shining sounds of Emi Sunshine!!.
