Just the other day, I posted praise for Phoebe Bridger’s gentle but blunt diss.
Today, I want to appreciate another woman who is a master at asking someone to take a hike: Emily Nenni, a rising honky tonk star that comes from Nashville.
Her Spotify bio is wonderful:
Here is the first rack of hers that I heard. It’s called “I Owe You Nothin'”:
Ask me for something,
Well get in line,
I owe you nothin’,
You can get with the times.
She has another great song along the same lines called “Hell of a Woman”.
I drank some te-kill-ya,
They said it would heal you,
But I nearly lost my reigns,
And Lord how I cried.
I’m a hellllll of a woman. x2
I’ve been disrespected,
But they’ve been corrected,
It’s expensive to own how you feel,
Cause talk is cheap,
And that’s not me,
Maybe once in a while when the liquor’s flowin’ free.
Anywho, this wonderful gal came out with a new EP called Long Game today. If you are into some honky tonk or girl power tunes, I definitely recommend you check her out.
