Women of Country Music

Women's History Month: Women in Country Music

From cowgirls to "redneck women," women have been performing country music since its early days. The style was the same but the subjects were often different from men's songs. While men sang about hard-drinking and honky-tonks, women sang laments about the rough choices facing the women who love hard-drinking men.
