The baritone voices of Southern men like Josh Turner, Johnny Cash, and George Strait are nice, but sometimes a country song needs a woman’s touches.
We pulled together a playlist of our favorite female singer-songwriters from legends like Dolly Parton and Loretta Lynn to newcomers Holly Williams and Bonnie Montgomery. And don’t worry boys, we even threw in a couple of sultry duets, just to even the playing field. Stream the mix below through Spotify, and tell us your favorite women of country in the comments.
