I was so happy to hear Carrie Underwood say this. We all have been saying this a bit under our breath for years but I am glad someone of Carrie's clout has spoken up on a national platform and said we need more woman in country music.
For years when I was first getting into radio, I was told woman don't want to hear a woman on the radio and that men were being hired because woman would develop crushes on them that would keep them listening. It would drive me batty. Give us woman more credit than that! I am happy to report things in my line of work have gotten better so hopefully the powers in Nashville will start giving woman more of a chance to be heard.
