CMT will continue to spotlight pioneering women in Country music with the addition of five new artists to its Next Women of Country initiative. Angaleena Presley, Lindsay Ell, Lucy Hale, Natalie Stovall and The Drive, and Nikki Lane are the latest to join the multi-platform initiative that recognizes women making an impact on Country music.
Since the campaign launched, the network has named 21 major label, indie label and unsigned female artists to its ‘Next Women’ list, providing support on-air and online with exclusive video premieres, live performances and more.
Since CMT’s Next Women of Country launched in January 2013, several alumnae — Kacey Musgraves, Brandy Clark, Cassadee Pope and Ashley Monroe included — found success ranging from commercial and critical acclaim, to Musgraves’ two Grammy wins for best Country song and best Country album.
