Chapter 251: Acid Tongue

Female-fronted country & indie country

Women in country music have long fought against a good-ol-boys club mentality; country radio is mostly male, and the female artists that break out tend to be treated as tokens. That outsider status can empower women to take risks the dudes won't; Margo Price sets her classic country kiss-off against a subtle disco backdrop, while Kacey Musgraves skewers traditionalist values on “Follow Your Arrow.” Emmylou Harris, one of country’s strongest feminist voices, brings tremulous compassion to the grief ballad “Boulder To Birmingham.”
