Many fans first became familiar with songstress Emily West via America’s Got Talent Season 9, but she’s actually a veteran artist with a long and impressive resumé that includes an eight-year stint with Capitol Nashville, an Academy of Country Music Vocal nomination, a collaboration with Keith Urban, appearances on Body of Proof, Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?, and Celebrity Apprentice, and tons of critical acclaim to her credit.

Now, despite her single’s title, Emily isn’t “Bitter” about her past near-brushes with mainstream success. After her star turn on AGT (she placed second) in 2014, she landed a new deal with Sony Masterworks, and this August she’ll finally release her debut album, featuring numerous special guests, including a cameo by Cyndi Lauper.
