Born Emilie Sunshine Hamilton, Emi was raised in a musical family in Madisonville, Tennessee. She started performing at age four, wrote her first song at age five, recording two albums by the time she turned seven.

A “mind-bogglingly” talented singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, EmiSunshine is “one of the 10 new country artists you need to know” according to Rolling Stone Magazine.

This teenage musical Phenom writes “intense Appalachian folk tunes in the Carter Family tradition and sings them with wisdom and ferocity.” Influenced by country music trendsetters Bessie Smith, June Carter, Loretta Lynn and Hank Williams and The Louvin Brothers, EmiSunshine is a throwback to an earlier era of country music. Her charismatic stage presence, honest lyrics and gutsy voice evoke comparisons to “a modern-day Janis Joplin.”

This is a family friendly Christmas themed show with opening performance by Etta May.

Etta May is a seasoned performer with national appeal. Winner of the prestigious American Comedy Awards “Comic of the Year,” a Kentucky woman, is a comedy icon hailed as the “Polyester Princess,” and the reigning queen of southern sass. This trailer park goddess has appeared on, Oprah, Showtime, CMT, CBS Sunday Morning, ABC, Columbia Pictures, and NBC. She headlines the hugely successful Southern Fried Chicks Comedy Tour and touts a huge fan base on SiriusXM comedy channels.
