Listen to the Most Powerful Women of Country Playlist
It’s no secret that country music is full of trailblazing women that have created timeless songs, but rarely do they get the attention and credit deserved. We’ve put our favorites together in one playlist: Country Music’s Best Female Singers: Songs From the All-Time Greatest Women of Country.
From Dolly Parton and Loretta Lynn to Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert, all generations of women are represented here. Each song selected represents the best of each artist and proves why they’re a force to be reckoned with. For the legends, there’s Patsy Cline‘s “Crazy,” Reba McEntire‘s famous rendition of “Fancy,” the classic “You Ain’t Woman Enough (To Take My Man)” by Lynn, “Stand by Your Man” by Tammy Wynette and Parton’s iconic “I Will Always Love You,” just to name a few.
These legends paved the way for ’90s icons like Faith Hill, Shania Twain and Martina McBride, who are all represented on this playlist. These leading superstars opened the doors for modern-day powerhouses like Underwood, Taylor Swift, Kacey Musgraves, the Dixie Chicks and many more to have their own unique platforms that launched them into stardom. Lambert’s striking “The House That Built Me” and Underwood’s fiery “Church Bells” both make the list, along with Musgraves and Swift’s groundbreaking debut singles. RISERS Runaway June, Farewell Angelia and Kalie Shorr also appear on the playlist.
These are just some of the revolutionary artists whose tunes inspired fellow artists and fans alike. Check out the full playlist of great female country singers above!
