Steve Cropper has signed Emily McGill  from Jackson, Tennessee to “Play it Steve” as a writer and has released her first single ” I’m Writing You Out Of My Memory” on Sneaky Animals Records.

The talented and country-inspired artist from Humboldt, Tennessee is the daughter of the late great Chuck McGill, a local hero in the West TN music scene, who in 2017 had part of Highway 186 named after him.

She grew up singing and playing in her family band with her mom Paula and sister Katie, and worked in her father’s music store, The Bandstand. McGill has worked and written with noteworthy artists such as Bud Lee, Irene Kelley, Steve Mandile, Jonathan Singleton and others.
