Female Country Artists— Old and New!

As a kid, my favorite artists were female country singers— Miranda Lambert, The Dixie Chicks, Faith Hill, etc. As a I got older, I recognized the lack of representation on radio, which is why this podcast is so important. Elaina has introduced me to SO many female artists that I otherwise would have never known, but she also has great conversations with the women we already love. I can’t recommend this podcast enough to those who love good music and women’s empowerment!!
