The big announcement earlier this year for the Thrasher-Horne Center was that we were bringing Jay Leno to our mainstage on January 14th. But what seemed to slip through the cracks was Jay’s opening act: Emily West. Signed to Capitol Records Nashville, she debuted on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs charts in early 2008 with the single “Rocks in Your Shoes”. This song peaked at No. 39 early in the year, and is the first single from a self-titled EP. She entered the country charts a second time with “Blue Sky”, a duet with Keith Urban, in 2010.
In 2012, West guest-starred in Body of Proof. In 2014, she competed on the 9th season of America’s Got Talent, where she finished as the runner up to magician Mat Franco. Since her success on the show, West has toured extensively throughout the United States, first with her one-woman show and then with America’s Got Talent Live: The All-Stars Tour! Now she’s hit the road with Jay Leno, bringing you a delicious appetizer of sultry songstress prior to your comedy main course.
Check out these incredible torch songs that prove why Emily West is quickly becoming a household name!
