CHEERS


I’ve had this concept in my head for such a long time and just never got around to executing on it, until now. Inspired by the announcement of CMT’s Next Women of Country Class of 2021, welcome to the inaugural edition of the Morning Hangover’s new tipsheet devoted to the many women of country music. This tipsheet will come out once-a-week, on #WCW, and will feature content exclusively focused on the women of country music. This tipsheet will cover the full spectrum of female artists from icons like Carrie Underwood to superstars like Maren Morris to the next generation of stars like Ingrid Andress and Gabby Barrett to diamonds in the rough like Ashley McBryde, to the unsigned artists trying to realize their potential. I’ve always believed talking about change isn’t enough, you have to do everything in your power to help realize the change you believe in. This is my small way of trying to help change the tide and promote equality and raise awareness about the women of country music. Special shoutout to bad-ass women like Leslie Fram, Cindy Mabe, Kerri Edwards, who have inspired me to celebrate and advocate the women of country music.
