Why Is Everyone Pitching In To Help Women In Country Music Except Radio?

Ahead of the ACM Awards Sunday night, the Annenberg Inclusion Initiative dropped a report on women in country music. We already knew they were being shut out on the radio (and we heard it from Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood, Kacey Musgraves — basically, the most influential women in the genre are pissed about the lack of play time they and their peers are seeing).Now, we're seeing the results of icing women out of country as the ACMs have no women up for their biggest award, Entertainer of t...

The $39 Volumizing Spray Behind Kacey Musgraves' Country Hair

If Gretchen Wieners were real, she'd probably be jealous of Kacey Musgraves' hair. And, to her credit, there is one secret the Grammy-Award winning country singer is hiding in that astonishing bouffant: hairstylist Giovanni Delgado."Her interests have always been hyper-glamour," explains Delgado, a Tennessee native who's helped Musgraves develop her signature voluminous look over the past four years. That "hyper-glamour" was on full display for her fourth studio album, Golden Hour. "Her vibe is...

Before Universal: Kacey Musgraves And Triple Pop

Even before sweeping four major GRAMMY's Kacey Musgraves, the past year saw the contemporary country artist explode in popularity, and though many think of her as a new artist, Musgraves' recording career can be traced back quite a ways, and to a much smaller label than UMG. _________________________ Guest post from Triple Pop Last week, Kacey Musgraves won a total of four (4) GRAMMYs for Album of the Year for her latest album, Golden Hour, which she can add to her growing list of a...

Sounds Of Music 2018 From Pandora's Music Genome Project

How did music change in 2018? It's not an easy question to answer, but the data gurus at Pandora have crunched the mountains of data that power the Music Genome Project to find out. _______________________________ By Emily Blake and Sergio Oramas of Pandora Most of us can likely recognize an ‘80s song from three cars away. Nowadays, those signature sounds — the heavy reverb, snare drum and extravagant power ballads - come off, well, so ‘80s. Chances are, our music will sound just as ...

The 10 Best Country Albums of 2018

None No contemporary music genre gets dumped on like country. Despite country's widespread popularity, the common critical argument is that modern country, at least whatever gets played on the radio, is often like fast food: It's taste-tested, mass-produced, and predictable; it goes down easy, and all of it is identical in flavor. Indeed, it is true that a big majority of country radio is made up of interchangeable white male singers: You would be forgiven for not knowing the difference between...

The 10 Best Albums Of 2018 All Have One Thing In Common: They're Made By Women

Commercially speaking, 2018 wasn’t a great year for the representation of women in music. Once again, the top 10s – Spotify, Billboard and the like – are dominated by men. But some of the most interesting, most boundary-pushing, and best music of this year came from women. In our opinion, women made all the best albums this year; from Ariana Grande, who made the best album of her career thus far, to Cardi B, whose star shone brighter than any man in rap, to Camila Cabello, whose solo debut surp...

Keith Urban creates a memorable Stagecoach moment, strong winds kick up extra dust

It had been eight years since singer-songwriter Keith Urban has headlined an evening at the Stagecoach Country Music Festival and he more than made up for lost time during his set Saturday night at the Empire Polo Club in Indio. Urban, who just dropped a brand new album, “Graffiti U,” on Friday, mixed a little of the old with the new in front of a rowdy and attentive audience. People were ready to party as he came out straight away with “Somebody Like You,” his hair majestically whipping in the ...

Kacey Musgraves Would Rather Be Herself & Have 10 Real Fans Than 10,000 Fake Ones

Kacey Musgraves has released the best album of her career, but you're unlikely to hear any singles from it on country radio. If that begs the question of whether a musician can be a superstar and be ignored by their radio format, you need to catch up on the history of Loretta Lynn. Listeners of the podcast Cocaine & Rhinestones got a history lesson in an episode about Lynn, who had no less than 14 singles banned from radio play. In fact, it became her business model to sell records when she and...
