The Women’s Music Business Association held its June Membership Meeting via Zoom on Tuesday (June 23).

Almost 50 members were in attendance during the meeting, where WMBA President Kelsey Wise led an in-depth discussion with artist/songwriter Mickey Guyton, singer/songwriter Victoria Banks, songwriter/producer Karen Kosowski, and singer/songwriter Emma-Lee about their stirring song, “What Are You Gonna Tell Her?” Guyton shared the inspiration behind the song, and her realization that females have to put on a front with their male counterparts to develop professionally left a profound impression on her three co-writers that inspired them to turn that truth into a brutally honest, impactful song.

The discussion highlighted topics ranging from the ratio of male-to-female talent on country radio to formative career moments for each speaker to advice on how to encourage oneself as well as other females to take control of their careers in the music industry.
