Emily traveled and performed with Taylor for two years before she made a career change and chose to go to the University of Tennessee Law School. She is a Belmont University Graduate.
Back in February 2011, Emily spoke to the students of the Maryville Intermediate School Orchestra and shared her experience touring with Taylor.
It is widely believed that the song “Breathe” from the Fearless (2008) and Fearless (Taylor’s Version)  albums was actually written for Emily. Whether that’s true or not, Taylor has never confirmed it. The song’s hidden message is “I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m sorry”.
