A smooth fast singing soul filled voice fills the air when “Good Intentions” starts playing through my laptop! “”Can’t get to heaven on good intentions” but you sure can try. This song from start to finish is overfilling with energy and god time vibes. Emily Hackett recently performed her new single at the CMA Festival in Nashville and fans went crazy over it.
This song is unique for me because it’s not just my story,” Emily expressed in a recent interview with Paste. “I pulled real-life snippets from a bunch of my friends. One used to get their car towed from the bar all the time, one kept swearing off boys but still flirting her way through life, one has definitely had some serious retail therapy. It’s a little bit of everyone because that’s the idea – we all have good intentions.”
