Wanted a genre-based thread to discuss the women of country as a whole. I will add more to the OP as the thread goes on, but this should be a good rounded start. I'm still trying to discover more and more artists. 

 

It remains an utter shame how stuck in their ways country radio is. GIRL hitting #1 and then dropping 13 spots the next week is evidence enough of someone at the top saying "there's our female #1 for the year, you can stop playing her now". Really sad. Although it's good more and more artists are speaking out about it. The genre and its amazing women deserve so much more cry8 

 

Excited for Miranda's new album next month. This year, I've liked The Highwomen (The Highwomen) and Stages (Cassadee Pope) the most as albums. I know there's a lot more to listen to but... too much to do, too little time. Also wanting to explore more older artists like Tammy Wynette. Currently, Ashley McBryde (One Night Standards), Kelsea Ballerini (Homecoming Queen) and Lady Antebellum (Pictures) are releasing awesome new singles legend1

Why did you choose Platinum (her worst album)? @RihannaRTT

i hate The Weight of These Wings dead2 I have tried and tried and I can't get into ANY of it. I think Vice is really good but the others, I'm really struggling dead2  (I'm replacing it with Wildcard in a month anyway lol2 ). 

 

Platinum is hit or miss for me. But imo has some of her best songs to date like Girls legend1 The talent THAT has legend1 

 

PS did you have a previous username sis, i been wondering dead2

Not even sure atm dead2 At one point it was BA, then Storyteller, then Carnival Ride. I really don't know but somewhere between CR-PO-BA I suppose. (PO is weird coz I used to think it was her worst dead2 ). 

I had tickets booked for her in July but wasn't well and couldn't attend. I'm... cry8

I wish I could get into it but its just so different from the rest. dead2 Love all her other stuff tho, mostly her Pistol Annies work. Solo wise, I'd go Crazy Ex Girlfriend maybe. Not sure, her solo albums aren't that consistent for me, they just all have big standouts.

She has 6 fantastic albums. The reason I got into country music really (that and Speak Now). I'm so glad I did giveup1 

 

the amount of missed hits she could have had on EACH album omg; Songs Like This, Starts With Goodbye, both would have been a 30 week #1 giveup1
