“Women Want to Hear Women With Elaina Smith” Featuring Kacey Musgraves

“Women Want to Hear Women With Elaina Smith” Featuring Kacey Musgraves

Need a refresher on what #WomenWantToHearWomen is all about?

I want to thank everyone for the amazing support and feedback since launching this concept on June 15 with Nash Country Daily, not only from the best fans in the world but also from some of the best female artists, including Cam, Runaway June, Stephanie Quayle, RaeLynn and more. I’m so excited to be doing this with all of you, and your suggestions have been perfection.

We definitely have a long list of powerful and talented women to shine the spotlight on, so let’s get things rolling.

The inaugural #WomenWantToHearWomen feature is . . . Kacey Musgraves. Not only did I get a BUNCH of tweets about Kacey, but she also happens to be one of my personal favorites. Honestly, she’s the first artist who sparked my interest regarding women not being played on country radio—and that was back in 2013. I couldn’t wrap my head around the fact that this talented, unique, SUPER country woman wasn’t getting the love she deserved.

Kacey is an amazing songwriter and singer. She’s a voice of our generation. Her albums have perfectly encapsulated where my friends and I are—and have been—in our lives. From love-and-acceptance anthems like “Follow Your Arrow” to everyday-problem songs like “Lonely Weekend,” Kacey can translate any thought into a country BOP!

While you might not hear much of Kacey’s music on country radio nowadays, that doesn’t mean she’s going unnoticed. Some of the biggest stars in the world have professed their love for her, including her current tour mate, Harry Styles. I caught up with Kacey to find out how her tour with Harry is going and to talk about the recent trend of female country stars opening up for male popstars.

For your continued listening pleasure, I’ve curated a Kacey Musgraves playlist that you can enjoy while making the most of this first weekend of summer 2018.

Don’t forget to tweet us your suggestions regarding who we should highlight next: @ElainaDSmith and @NASHCntryDaily. Make sure to use the hashtag: #WomenWantToHearWomen
