CMT first launched its “Next Women of Country” campaign in 2013 as a meaningful effort to support developing female talent, both signed and unsigned, in a male-dominated format. The initiative has grown significantly since its inception, showcasing emerging female artists across all CMT screens, including CMT and CMT Music, various digital series, performance showcases and seven tours anchored by acts including Jennifer Nettles, Martina McBride, Sara Evans, Tanya Tucker and Maddie & Tae. As of January 2023, a total of 111 female artists have been inducted into the program, with members earning more than 50 major awards, including nine Grammy Awards.
