Rising Country Star EMILY MINOR grew up on the coast of North Carolina in a family full of engineers who never thought of music as a career.  Emily followed their lead and went to college and graduated to become an elementary school teacher.  But her passion to sing country music took over just as she stepped out the doors of her alma mater.  Instead of starting her teaching career she and her boyfriend (now husband) John took off to Nashville to follow their dreams.

Since then Emily auditioned and made it through several of the rounds for American Idol before being voted off the show.  But that set back didn't stop her and she and John (her lead guitar player) are following their dreams of becoming the next big thing.

Hear Emily's new single "Funky Feel Good" below.
