In light of all the recent #tomatogate controversy, there’s never been a more appropriate time to highlight and celebrate the weekly writers round Song Suffragettes.
Song Suffragettes is a show held at The Listening Room Café in Nashville every Monday at 6:30pm. The show represents everything needed in country music at the minute; it’s definitely not easy to be a woman in country these days and the show focuses on showcasing the latest and greatest of Nashville’s upcoming female country singer songwriters. Song Suffragettes is providing an outlet for women to get their name into the mainstream in a supportive and encouraging environment – all the girls are enthusiastic about the future and possible changes in country music and it’s endearing to witness.
Here’s some of the girls explaining what Song Suffragettes stands for and what it means to them:
The round often features special guests with previous acts including RaeLynn, Kelsea Ballerini, and Natalie Stovall as well as regular artists and show leader Kalie Shorr. Other frequent guests include Karli Chayne, Morgan Dawson and Hannah Ellis. The show features a wide variety of individual talents for every taste and there’s quite literally something for everyone.
The show just celebrated their first year anniversary yet they’ve already made such a significant impact in Nashville. Since then the round has already upgraded venue size, performed at CMA Fest and even gained the sponsorship of Country Outfitter.
