If you haven’t heard Andrew Combs‘ “Emily”, you’re missing out on one of the best alt-country tracks that has been released in recent years. Within seconds, this foot-stomping and infectiously catchy tune is sure to put you in a good mood.
The video shows a live performance from Combs during a set at Music City Roots, a showcase based out of Franklin, Tenn. hosted by Jim Lauderdale. Though a transplant from Dallas, Combs calls Nashville home. He released his first EP, Tennessee Time, back in 2010 and signed a publishing contract with Razor & Tie two years later. His debut album, Worried Man, earned him a lot of buzz in the singer-songwriter genre. Soon after, he was tapped to play the Newport Folk Festival and gained even more traction after supporting Americana darlings Shovels & Rope on tour.
Combs released his second full-length album, All These Dreams, early 2015. It’s an expertly arranged piece of art that bridges multiple genres to create a unique, vintage sound that’s all his own.
If you head to any Andrew Combs show, it’s likely you’ll hear “Emily” as the closing song for the set. As a result, there will be multiple fans, like me, dancing and singing along like there’s no tomorrow.
