CMA Fest 2019: 20 Best Artists and Shows We Saw
From emergent superstar Luke Combs to rising talent like Kassi Ashton, the highlights of Nashville’s annual country music festival
Knoxville, Tennessee, native Emily Ann Roberts drew a standing-room-only crowd to her Sunday afternoon performance at the indoor Acoustic Corner stage, likely thanks to her time on Season 9 of The Voice. With support from a scaled-down band, Roberts showed off some serious vocal firepower, stretching out stratospheric notes and tossing in tricky runs with the easy confidence of a pro athlete. But with clever, hyper-melodic songs like “Stuck on Me & You,” Roberts also showed she’s got plenty of other weapons in her arsenal. J.F.

Emily Ann Roberts made her way back to The Voice. The 2015 runner-up returned to the singing competition on Tuesday night (May 14) to perform her new single, "Someday Dream."
The country darling stunned in a sparkling gown as she belted out the inspirational lyrics, fitting to her journey from The Voice competitor to full-blown artist and performer. To add to the nostalgia, scenes of Roberts' time on the show flashed on the screen behind her. The performance was met by a standing ovation from the judges.
“Emily Ann totally killed it on the Voice stage last night," Blake Shelton, Roberts' former coach on The Voice, said in a statement. "I couldn’t be more proud of all the work she has put in and she continues to be an awesome vocalist.”
“Someday Dream" is the first release off the songstress' upcoming debut EP, slated for release this summer. Watch her performance below.
EMILY ANN ROBERTS, ‘SOMEDAY DREAM’ [EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE]
Singer-songwriter and The Voice runner-up Emily Ann Roberts is premiering her new single "Someday Dream" exclusively for readers of The Boot. Press play below to listen to the uplifting new track.
Roberts remembers the exact date on which she penned "Someday Dream" alongside Jason Saenz and Seth Mosley: Aug. 29, 2017. It was a pivotal moment for her.
"I had been off The Voice for almost two years, and I was going through this rut of wanting my career to happen and develop more quickly than it was," Roberts tells The Boot. "I started hearing myself saying things like, 'Someday when I write the perfect song, then I'll be content.'"
"Someday Dream" is a song about respecting where you are in the journey while still working to pursue your goals: "When I'm lookin' back, I'm a whole lot further down that old narrow road," Roberts sings. "Broken record, try to break me / Daddy said don't let it phase me / Well, honey, I'm just pickin' up / See, this just ain't some someday dream."
For Roberts, that "someday dream" was finding her place in the music world. "I always wanted to be a country music artist, songwriter and entertainer at the largest level God wanted for me," she shares. "I was so hung up on all I wasn’t achieving that I was missing all that I had accomplished, and I was so focused on where I was trying to get to that I missed where I was in the moment.
"I realized," Roberts adds, "I was living in my “Someday Dream” all along."
A Tennessee native and finalist during The Voice's ninth season in late 2015, Roberts was snapped up by The Voicecoach and country star Blake Shelton during her blind audition. Since her appearance on the TV singing competition, she's signed with the management company that handles Shelton's career and is working on new music.
"Someday Dream" is officially due out on Friday (April 19); fans of Miranda Lambert, Kelsea Ballerini and Maren Morris will definitely want to add it to their playlists. To learn more about Roberts, visit her website.
