Emily Herring simply sings purest country music. Gliding, her fourth record, produced by legendary instrumentalist Steve Fishell and released Oct. 2017, delivers all raw emotion with a voice branded at birth for honkytonks. 
As Emily says“Gliding's a movement with a certain stillness attached,” the You're at the mercy of the wind along with the extreme force of gravity. The title track leads you off the ledge and into a moment where time stands still, your thoughts slowly moving through what could have been with only the implication of the inevitable.”

She loves floating through Western swing, gypsy jazz and traditional country influences to combine into her own signature sound. Her soaring vocals set her apart from the rest. She pulls no punches. Her hard-hitting-no-frills crooning is sung with a distinctive twang that pays dividends: Fresh off the heels of her Swedish tour and a residency at McMenamin's Crystal Hotel in Portland, Emily received a 2015 Ameripolitan Award Nomination for her CD Your Mistake. The album also won her the Carl T. Sprague Award from the Texas Music Awards, an honor she shares with only one other recipient, Michael Martin Murphey.

Your Mistake was featured in several publications including No Depression and CMT Edge. In turns dazzling and stark, Your Mistake is a love letter and a warning, a honkytonk when the lights come up, the ring of the last change in your pocket as you spend it on the only beautiful girl in town. Her songs are poetry, wrought with pedal steel, dobro, telecaster, a careful reverence, and an honest eye. Stretching across Texas and the new West, the songs recall the last fifty years of country music in a sound all their own. Now, with Gliding and her producer and now lifelong friend, Steve Fishell, she's able to  take her music to a new level.
