What makes it so frustrating that so call country radio and award shows won't play the women of country music but they will play any artist from any other music and treat the women that are already in country music like 3rd class citizens, Women vote , They have flown into Space, in 2012 the 1st female members in 80 years were allowed at the Augusta Golf Club - home of the Masters , this year the NFL will have it's 1st female referee and in 2016 we could elect the 1st woman president, BUT country music still won't give the women of country music the respect they have earned and deserve, Country music as a business is as sexist as it gets,, I think a lot has to do with it is male dominated , maybe it is pass time to get some women calling the shots.

Dale... I agree with you about the pride in every other enterprise you mention.. going to space. The masters.. Yeah Girl power! I am not even against more women on the radio. Its just when we play more than 15% ratings go down. So you have what I would call (and I think I'm right about this) disconnected logic. I had to explain this to someone who used it in reverse. When ice cream sales go up there are more murders...so ice cream sales cause more murders. No summer time is the connection.. people are out hot.. and eat ice cream and well get into angry hostilities more. Thats a correlation! Ice cream and murder is not a correlation. The numbers track the same. I have no acrimony to women running the worldm A woman president, an all woman congress, an all woman supreme court, every lawyer, doctor, anything be a woman. Its just when you play more than 15% of them on country radio ratings go down.

^^^ Hey! You are so welcome! :) :) :)

By the way, if you don't mind my asking. how do you feel about the tomato shirts that Martina McBride seems to be getting out there? Because there are so many talented guys in country no matter what's going on with the girls, I would love to have one that says "country music lettuce lover" on it. :D :D :D

Sadly though a lot of my favorite males are not played as much as they used to be either.

James Otto
Trace Adkins
Darryl Worley
Brad Paisley
Kenny Chesney
Toby Keith
Hal Ketchum

God bless you and them and Martina always!!! :) :) :)

Listen to my most favorite singer here sometime, James Otto! (big smile)

Holly... I am fine with the Tomato Shirts. This whole issue has died down.... because I was correct about the metric I suggested.

After an on-air discussion about women in country music that’s popped up over the last couple of days, Bryan/College Station’s KVMK-FM Maverick 100.9 will be going all women for the entire 9A hour tomorrow morning.

“I’ve always been a fan of great female country artists,” says Adam Drake, PD/Mornings for Maverick. “It’s been baffling to me why more great female artists aren’t pushed to the extent that they could be. With our on-air discussion this morning and great feedback from the listeners, we figured we’d show our love to the amazing women who shaped country music.”

The topic has been a hot button all over social media and most country music fans. In Bryan/College Station, TX, the listeners seem to be on board with hearing more female artists.

One listener responded to the conversation with “I love all country music, but there’s a trend in the male music that’s portraying drunk females and partying, showbox apk the female artists aren’t all about that. I’d rather my daughter listen to music that makes her feel important and not where she feels she has to go get drunk.”

Drake says he hopes this conversation will move the music trend to trying to break female artists that have something to say.

With the rich history of women in country music, Patsy Cline, Reba, Loretta, Tanya Tucker, Lorrie Morgan, Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood, etc. tomorrow’s 9A hour can shape up to be an hour of some amazing music! Take a listen for yourself by listening online at maverickradio.com.

Carrie Underwood, Loretta, Alison Krauss and LeAnn Rimes are my most favorites.

I'd like to see some country stations play Runaway June. They have released several good songs, in my opinion, and the 3 country stations in this market have not played them.

Advise a site where you can listen to songs online and there are free music download series, without registration or for a fee, but a cheap one. How does this site differ from a hundred others the same thematics? It is desirable that it doesn`t contain awful ads, and not to be needed to wait for 30, 60 or whatever seconds to download a song. Nowadays, of course, it is not a problem to download mp3. But these tracks are not quality everywhere and downloaded fast.

" I’d rather my daughter listen to music that makes her feel important and not where she feels she has to go get drunk.”

Don't let her listen to Gretchen Wilson.

I'd like to see other genres of music have this discussion. How many women do you hear in alternative rock?
