Girls’ Night Out: Superstar Women Of Country
Carrie Underwood summed up the Girls’ Night Out: Superstar Women of Country concert perfectly when she told the audience – “I don’t know what country music would do without them, and I don’t know what the world would do without them.”
More after the jump.
Indeed, eight of country music’s most prominent women — the Judds, Miranda Lambert, Loretta Lynn, Martina McBride, Reba McEntire, Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles and Underwood — were given a night to shine on Monday (April 4), just one night after the ACM Awards. Taped at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, the special will air on CBS on April 22.
I have so musch respect for these women of country music. Each of them have had an impact on my life, one way or another.
When I think of country music, I think of Loretta Lynn, who overcame poverty and used sheer determination to become a country superstar who paved the way for other women.
I’ll never forget the first time I saw the Judds in concert. It was 1989 and I was on my first date with the man who would eventually became my husband.
Then there’s Reba. The beautiful red-head from Oklahoma with the unique voice and ‘twang’ that could use her voice in so many ways. My favorite song of Reba’s is ‘Whoever’s In New England.’
Country fans set your DVR’s and don’t miss this special.
