The Grammy Museum is rolling out the red carpet for a brand new exhibit.
Officially dubbed ‘The Power Of Women In Country Music’ according to their website, it will highlight women throughout the decades who have made a significant impact on the genre of country music:
“The immersive new exhibit highlights the past, present and future of women superstars in country music.”
It will include names like Dolly Parton, Reba, Miranda Lambert, Loretta Lynn, Rosanne Cash, LeAnn Rimes, Shania Twain, Taylor Swift, Mickey Guyton, Carly Pearce, Maybelle and Sara Carter, Patsy Cline, Emmylou Harris and plenty more:
But there was a massive name that was noticeably absent from the exhibit: Carrie Underwood. Carrie won a Grammy just this year for Best Roots Gospel Album for her incredible 2021 My Savior album.
They also left out Alison Krauss, who has a whopping 27 Grammy Awards to her name.
It is extremely odd (and confusing) that they didn’t include Carrie, who has been one of two female superstars in mainstream country music for the last decade plus (along with Miranda), and fans on Twitter took notice:
Where is Carrie Underwood, Tammy Wynette, Martina, The Chicks…? But mostly where is 8x winner CARRIE UNDERWOOD?! Maybe you (@RecordingAcad) should get someone else to do a better job rather than a biased one. Yes, I’m talking about … pic.twitter.com/DspjLjnIYA

Umm…whoever curated this did a poor job with their “research”….. @carrieunderwood 👀

Where is @AlisonKrauss, the bluegrass/country artist with the most Grammys? She’s earned 27 as a solo artist and another 14 with her band Union Station. Combined, that puts her well over George Solti’s 31 awards. How disappointing you would forget about her! #PowerOfWomen

Pretty embarrassing that the one woman consistently breaks barriers & records in Country Music isn’t mentioned in here? Why isn’t Carrie Underwood, the leading woman of Country Music, not in this?

@GRAMMYMuseum that’s just disrespectful. You have Taylor Swift & newer artists that haven’t won yet, but not @carrieunderwood, who is a 8x Grammy Winner & the only female to have won the Academy of Country Music Entertainer of the year award, a record breaking FOUR (4) times.

No Carrie? No credibility 😌

With all due respect why isn’t @carrieunderwood part of this so called “power of women in country music” exhibit? I think it’s kind off disrespectful not to include her in such thing, Carrie is one of the biggest stars in country music and she deserves the recognition! pic.twitter.com/nd1KmOMv9D

Just another reasons the Grammys are a joke. I could go on and on. But I won’t

The exhibit launches on May 27th and will run through October 2nd. I don’t think there will be any Carrie fans there, though…
She is gearing up to release her next studio album, Denim And Rhinestones, on June 10th.
The lead single is “Ghost Story,” which, she literally just performed live… on the Grammys.
