Emily West releases new single

Wednesday, March 25, 2009 – Emily West will release her new single That Kind of Happy to radio Monday, April 6. Sherrie Austin, Mallory Hope and Will Rambeaux wrote the song produced by Mark Bright.

"The first time I heard it, I was totally sold," said West, who released Rocks In Your Shoes last summer. "The melody terrified me in all the right ways, and it does all these acrobatic twirls and what nots."

"That Kind of Happy says all the right things a girl in her late 20s wants to say if she was once, or twice, bitten by a love gone bad more than she'd like to mention. I love singing it! It makes me 'happy,'" said West.

West, who records for Capitol Nashville, is slated to release a CD this summer, although no date has been set.
