A country mile

EmilyPeterCongratulations to Season 9’s winner, the amazing Jordan Smith, and outstanding runner-up: Emily Ann Roberts.

Emily, working with you and coaching you through the Blind Auditions was a defining moment for you as an artist and I’m honored to have been a part of that for you.  I look forward now to seeing you writing more country/bluegrass music because that is truly You, and who you are.

Bring it! You’ve just run a country mile, and beautifully. How far you go is in your heart, your art and your truly exceptional voice.


Cue the music

You made it to the Final 9 of Season 9!

How amazing! Working with all 3 of you through The Blind Auditions was a special time of growth, and watching you reach new levels of openness was inspiring.

Congratulations on coming this far. This is not goodbye. I can’t wait to hear more from all of you.

Well done!
