Emmy Russell’s experience on American Idol and Luke Combs’ favorite albums | Music City Minute

May 22, 2024, 4:58 PM | Updated: 4:59 pm

Even though Emmy Russell, Loretta Lynn’s granddaughter, didn’t make it to the final three on American Idol, she learned a lot from her experience on the show. For example, how to overcome her nerves to perform. She admits that she’s learned to toughen up, not run from rejection and pain, and face hard things head-on. Now, post American Idol, Emmy isn’t slowing down. She recently released a new single called “Redemption.”
If you were stuck on a deserted island and only had one album to listen to for the rest of your life, what would you choose? It’s a hard question to answer, even for superstars like Luke Combs. Overwhelmed, Combs said there are too many to pick. When pressed, he admitted that he would pick something that would give him the most bang for his buck, like the Eagles or Tom Petty’s greatest hits.
