In a recent interview with The Washington Post, Jason Aldean was asked about women in country music.
More specifically, the difficulty female singers have breaking into the country music scene. Aldean offered his own theory on the matter…
“I feel like a lot of times female singers, to me, when they’re singing – and I’ll probably kick myself for saying this – a lot of times, it just seems like I can’t distinguish one from the other sometimes if I just listen to them, you know? A lot of times they just sound really similar to me. And then you have some that come out like a Carrie [Underwood] or Miranda [Lambert] or somebody like that, that really has a different, distinctive sound to their voice, then it’s like, oh, okay, you can tell them apart all of a sudden. They go on to be obviously big stars, but I think it’s because you can distinguish between them.”
Hmmm. The complaint I’ve actually heard most is that the new guys often sound too much alike, not the women.
You agree with Jason? Disagree? Let us know.
