COUNTRY MUSIC TELEVISION (CMT) hosted its "NEXT WOMEN OF COUNTRY" event TODAY (11/4), which celebrates the rising female artists in Country music. The event was co-hosted by LEE ANN WOMACK and CMT SVP/Music Strategy LESLIE FRAM.
The four new females being added to the "NEXT WOMEN OF COUNTRY" list are: KELSEA BALLERINI, MICKEY GUYTON, MADDIE & TAE, and RAELYNN. JEWEL will be mentoring the acts.
"Our mission remains as critical as ever now in our second year of NEXT WOMEN," said FRAM. "As champions of music, we have to ensure these incredible female voices are heard. It's time for a change in the male-dominated format, and CMT is proud to celebrate and empower the female voices that are making an indelible mark in Country music."
