Emily Nenni releases "Drive & Cry" in May and tours Europe in Aug/Sep


Emily Nenni will release Drive & Cry May 3, 2024 via New West Records. The 12-track set was produced by John James Tourville of The Deslondes at Creative Workshop in Nashville, TN and mixed by Matt Ross-Spang (John Prine, Jason Isbell) at Southern Grooves in Memphis, TN. Nenni has quickly emerged as one of the freshest and most electrifying voices in Nashville. Her sound is rooted in classic honky tonk and spiked with serious country, soul, and rock ‘n’ roll fire, with sweet-and-sassy lyrics that chronicle hard living, hot nights, heartbreak, and other universal truths about the human condition. Drive & Cry follows her critically acclaimed 2022 long player On the Ranch, which Holler said put “her firmly in the ring with any other heavyweight country contenter looking to lift that title belt.” No Depression called the album “a barnburner” while the Nashville Scene called it “an irresistible vintage-country masterwork.” 

Whereas On the Ranch saw Nenni uproot herself to lend a hand —and write—while assisting at a ranch in southern Colorado, Drive & Cry drops the listener smack in the middle of her boisterous and bustling Nashville world. Over the past several years, she has enraptured audiences across Music City (and the nation with near-constant touring alongside Charley Crockett, Orville Peck, and more) with sizzling sets in smoky bars and clubs, honing her command of the stage. She has perfected her skills as a band leader and sharpened her already astute world view, all of which are on full display on Drive & Cry

Following the release of the album Emily Nenni comes over to Europe for the first time in August / September, with her backing band Teddy & The Rough Riders supporting on the majority of the dates. Club dates go on sale on April 19th.
