There’s no doubt that talent runs in Loretta Lynn’s family. This couldn’t have been clearer when her granddaughter, Emmy Russell, auditioned for American Idol. This performance solidified the fact that she’s not only a fantastic singer but an amazing songwriter, too. That’s because she chose to sing an emotional original called Skinny. From there, Emmy went on to deliver one killer performance after another.

Although Emmy was quick to become a fan-favorite, and her final American Idol performance is sure to go down as one of the best of that season, she ultimately didn’t win. She did, however, make it to the top five. Best of all, though, it’s clear that she’s garnered devoted fans who are eager for her to release new music. If you’re one of them, it seems you’re in luck! Emmy is working on music, and she’s sharing snippets on social media. Her newest, called strong face, can be heard in the video below.

Like always, Emmy stuns with her beautiful voice and heart-wrenching lyrics. According to Emmy’s caption on this video, both she and some friends played a part in writing it. Together, they were able to capture the feeling of an all-too relatable scenario — acting like you’re okay after a breakup when you’re actually falling apart.

Emmy Russell’s Heartbreaking Song Resonates Deeply With Fans

This heartbreaking scenario is one that so many of Emmy’s fans have been through themselves. As a result, folks can’t stop raving over how much they adore it. Although the song isn’t available in full on any streaming services, her fans are begging for her to change that!

“So many will identify with those lyrics,” one fan writes in the comments section of her video. “You need to record it!”

“Amazing voice and such a poetic way at story telling while singing,” someone else shares with another person adding, “Beautiful. That resonates with my soul so much right now.”
