    "I was on tour with the band this summer. They invited me actually on Twitter," Emmy said Thursday on the syndicated radio show "Valentine in the Morning." "That's how we met – on a dare. They dared me to come sing with them a song that I'd never sung before … So I ended up on tour with the band, and it was very, very fun."
