Monday night (June 11), Nashville’s all-female singer-songwriter showcase Song Suffragettes hosted their fourth anniversary show at Analog at the Hutton Hotel in Nashville. Ten female songwriters were invited to play two rounds for the sold out crowd: Kelleigh Bannen, Candi Carpenter, Alys Ffion, Tegan Marie, Kalie Shorr, Nora Collins, Erin Enderlin, Madison Kozak, Hayley Orrantia and Tara Thompson.

The ladies also hosted a panel consisting of Red Light’s Tracy Gershon and MTSU’s Beverly Keel that discussed the underrepresentation of women in country music, specifically in radio, at music festivals and behind the scenes. The panel was moderated by Billboard contributor Phyllis Stark.
