Loretta Lynn's Granddaughter Emmy Russell Breaks Her Silence After Getting Eliminated On 'American Idol': "Thank You So Much"

Loretta Lynn's granddaughter Emmy Russell is speaking out after getting eliminated from American Idol. The singer failed to make the top 3 in the competition.

Well, Russell is just thankful for the experience. In an Instagram video, she shared her appreciation to fans for helping her to make it as far as she did in the competition. "Thank you so much for all the love, all the voting," Russell said in the video.

Ultimately, Emmy Russell said that she has faith in God and his plan. She believes that what was supposed to happen will happen. "I didn't make Top 3, but that's part of — that was God's plan," she said. "Before I got eliminated, I think God told me, he was like, 'Emmy, you're not gonna be chosen by America, but I chose you."

She reiterated her love and appreciation to fans comparing her failure to make the top 3 to a rejection from a lover. "I know I'm chosen," she added. "It's like whenever a boy is like, 'I don't wanna go out with you anymore.' And you're like, 'OK, but I know I'm loved."

However, Russell said she's embracing the rejection and going to learn from it. She feels inspired."Don't run from rejection or pain, and facing hard things ... " she said. "I sang 'The Climb' from Miley Cyrus, and I really think that she says it best. Sometimes you're gonna have to lose ... it's the climb. The climb is Abraham's promised land ... the promise is the climb with God."
