Biwabik Songwriter Featured On Carly Pearce’s Upcoming Album
If you've ever listened to country radio, you've definitely heard a song written by Emily Shackelton. She's a Biwabik native turned major Nashville songwriter and she's written some of the biggest hits in the format the past few years!
Now, it looks like her hot streak is going to continue into 2020: she co-wrote two of the songs on Carly Pearce's upcoming sophomore album!
The country star recently announced details about her new self-titled record, due out on February 14th. With this, she released a track listing of songs she cut for the record, along with who wrote them and what listeners can expect.
The first song Emily will be featured on is called Call Me and it was written along with busbee and the men from Little Big Town. According to Carly, the song is fun and sassy, sang from the viewpoint of a girl going after a guy with confidence.
The second song Emily wrote, along with Victoria Banks and Sara Haze, is called Dashboard Jesus. Carly says this song is for "all of the dreamers out there" and sounds like a record you'd hear from a female artist in the 90s.
Wow! I can not wait to hear these two cuts.
Both Carly and Emily scored their first number one country song together with Every Little Thing back in 2017. The song went on to become Carly's debut single, which skyrocketed her to fame. Emily also wrote a few other songs for Carly's debut album.
(By the way - I had the chance to talk to her right as the song was peaking on the charts. You can check out our full interview here if you missed it!)
Emily has also written songs for and with many other amazing artists like Lauren Alaina, Jana Kramer, Cassadee Pope and Sara Evans, just to name a few.
