Getting to know Emily Scott Robinson

Singer-songwriter, Emily Scott Robinson, a 2009 Furman University Spanish and history alumna, is featured in Yes! Weekly, a publication out of her hometown of Greensboro, North Carolina.

The track “The Dress,” took the No. 13 spot on Rolling Stone’s 25 Best Country and Americana Songs of 2019.
