Emmy Russell Slays Once Again on “American Idol”


“American Idol” Season 1.267 (or something like that) is well underway.

Honestly? I haven’t watched since 2011 when Scotty McCreery won.

BUT every now again, a video from the show surfaces, and I’m all like, “Damn, that’s pretty good.”

Like the legendary Loretta Lynn’s grandaughter Emmy Russell…

She wowed in her audition with an original song called “Skinny” about her former srtuggles with an eating disorder. She’s now in the Hollywood Round, and she slayed with another super-personal original song called “Like That.”


Both original songs are so relateable, and something a lot of young women go through.  Her songwriting is on point, and her voice is super unique… and her bloodline? Well, I’m sure Loretta is cheering her on up in Heaven.

She almost makes me want to check out “American Idol” again.

Loretta Lynn’s Grandaughter Emmy Russell Auditons on “American Idol”

“American Idol” Season 22 is back in full swing!

One of the big stories from last night’s auditions is Loretta Lynn’s granddaughter Emmy Russell took to the stage to perform an original song that she wrote about eating disorders.

Of course, she was fantastic, because she’s got Loretta Lynn’s legendary blood running through her veins.

Ok, I know “American Idol” is totally staged, like all “reality” shows.  Believe me, I know these things. But still, I always enjoy watching great talent and stories, and I just find Emmy very likeable. It’s refreshing to see someone seemingly authentic, unlike so many out there. Plus, Emmy was a Christian missionary travelling the world before returning to music, whcih I have mad respect for.

Of course, she made it to the next round. I might actually have to tune in now and see how she does!
