Local artist of the week Emily Hackett seems to be all the buzz these days. From CMT to Billboard, the young singer, songwriter is beginning to establish herself as one of Nashville’s most prominent up-and-coming artists. “Easy” is the lead single from her latest EP By The Moon.
“‘Easy’ was written as a letter to myself when I was coming out of a really dark time,” Hackett tells Billboard. “The human in me learned that once I could get away with something, it wasn’t as hard to imagine doing it again. I referenced Eve in the Bible, picking the apple off the tree because once she did, it opened the floodgates. Cheating can go the same way. It’s not okay to treat someone like that–but it is okay to talk about it.”
Listen to “Easy” below and all week long on Lightning 100. Don’t miss Emily Hackett this week at Nashville Sunday Night at 3rd & Lindsley.
