Emily Myers Strikes a Chord with Vulnerable New Single "Marilyn"


Nashville, TN (April 12, 2024) - Get ready to be captivated and moved as Emily Myers, the rising Americana star on the music scene, unveils her emotional new single, "Marilyn." Released on April 12, this compelling song takes listeners on a journey of self-discovery and empowerment, challenging societal norms and celebrating inner beauty.


Drawing from her own battles as a woman navigating the cutthroat music industry, Myers fearlessly confronts the toxic culture of body shaming and self-doubt with her new music. 


Through thought-provoking lyrics like 'might not be as stylish as Audrey, the image of envy and grace, if that’s what it means to be a woman, I’m always gonna feel out of place,' Emily challenges listeners to embrace their flaws and reclaim their power.


"My song, 'Marilyn,' was born out of a raw, intimate conversation with a friend struggling with an eating disorder," shares Myers.


"If Marilyn Monroe questioned if she was beautiful, what is the average woman supposed to think when she looks in the mirror? At some point in their life, every woman will feel that they cannot live up to the world’s unachievable high beauty standards. That lonely feeling leads women to struggle with eating disorders and body dysmorphia, mostly because they believe they are the only ones. Marilyn is a song that challenges our society by saying if all women struggle with body image, then maybe it’s a world problem and not a women problem." 

 

With its gripping blend of vulnerability and resilience, "Marilyn" promises to strike a chord with audiences worldwide, offering solace and inspiration to those struggling to find their voice in a world obsessed with perfection.
