Emerald is a touring fiddle player, songwriter, & entertainer.
Some may say her job description is to simply play music, but what she really does is… jump on tables and dance on bars all while fiddling around, perform her authentic original songs, and coordinate everything in between. Emerald helps people remember who they are and what they are going through or she helps them forget. Whichever they prefer. Above all else, Emerald is genuine and original in her Americana style, Country soul, and Rockabilly performance.
In summer of June 2017, Emerald Butler independently released her first all original album titled “I Am Me.” Emerald graduated from Middle Tennessee University in May of 2018 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Business. During her time at MTSU, Emerald interned at Nashville based roots label, Compass Records. She has worked with legends like Bob Kingsley, Bobby Osborne, and Alison Brown.
From Broadway to Beale, Emerald has performed at many music festivals and venues including the Opry City Stage in New York City. Emerald has performed with multiple artists including the Queen of Bluegrass Rhonda Vincent, Becky Buller, Jason D. Williams, and hit songwriter Roger Alan Wade. She has also accompanied various bands and opened for acts such as John Anderson and David Allen Coe.
