Victoria Banks has been nominated for 11 Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA) Awards and was named CCMA Female Artist of the Year and Songwriter of the Year in 2010. She has been labeled “one of the best songwriters in the business” by Nashville’s MusicRow magazine. Victoria -who hails from Muskoka, Canada -co-wrote 3 songs on the ground-breaking 2020 EP Bridgesby the Grammy-nominated Mickey Guyton, including “What Are You Gonna Tell Her” (which made history as the first original song performed by a Black woman on the ACM Awards). Guyton delivered another ACM Awards performance in 2021 with Victoria’s song “Hold On”
Emily Shackelton has been writing in Nashville for over a decade, and in that time she has seen some high highs, including writing the number one hit “Every Little Thing,” as well as some low lows that left her on the verge of leaving it all behind. We sat down with Emily to discuss her inspiring journey to the top of the charts.
