Unless you live under a rock, like a really f*cking big one, you know there is a huge disparity on country radio between the amount of men and women that get radio play.
For example, right now, there are only 5 women in the top 60 on the Billboard Country Airplay Chart. We can get into the details about why another time, but the other night, Miranda Lambert, whose incredible single “Tin Man” has only peaked somewhere around the mid 30’s, dedicated this solo performance “on behalf of all the girls that are not being played on country radio right now.”

Naturally, we do our best at Whiskey Riff to promote as much good music as possible, especially female artists. So we made a playlist of over 60 female artists that you can discover, listen to and share the sh*t out of.
As Martina McBride once sang, “This one’s for the girls.”
