January 16, 2013 at 2:16 PM (PT)
CMT has announced a new year-long platform to showcase new up-and-coming ladies of Country music. The “NEXT WOMEN OF COUNTRY” will feature one new artist each month, and has announced the first 10 ladies that they plan to highlight for 2013.
The 2013 “NEXT WOMEN OF COUNTRY” are ASHLEY MONROE, HOLLY WILLIAMS, JANA KRAMER, KACEY MUSGRAVES, BRANDY CLARK, LAUREN ALAINA, SARAH DARLING, ROSE FALCON, RACHEL FARLEY and KELLEIGH BANNEN. Additional artists will be included throughout the year as well.
The ladies will be promoted across all CMT platforms including CMT, CMT.COM, CMTEDGE.COM, CMT PURE, CMT RADIO NETWORKS, CMT social networking sites (which include over 4 million followers), and NEXTWOMEN.CMT.COM.
“Women are the cornerstone of Country music. We want to recognize, support and expose the next wave of authentic female artists, signed or independent, who are writing, recording and making it happen on their own in a crowded, male-dominated format,” said SVP/CMT Music Strategy LESLIE FRAM.
