This song is proof of that. “This song is unique for me because it’s not just my story,” Hackett explains. “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.”
Emily, a rising star on the fast track is took Nashville by storm with her last hit “Nostalgia” and given her undeniable talent and passion “Good Intentions” is sure to take the spot light and shine it right on her. The fun and energetic music video is just as catchy as the song and paired together is a formula for something epic.
