There's no issue with the quality of music women in country music are putting out. Country hitmakers like Pistol Annies and Lauren Alaina have released anthems recently, while an exciting group of newcomers are stretching the genre in the spirit of the legends that came before them.

We added 12 new songs from country girls like Jillian Jacqueline, Cassadee Pope, Maggie Rose and Runaway June to our previous list of 17 songs you need to check out. Margo Price is for traditionalists. Larkin Poe are unlike anything you've seen or heard in country music. Molly Tuttle just flat out breaks our heart.

Heather Morgan, Lucie Silvas and Maggie Rose are three more unique female voices that deserve a chance. The country community celebrated women on Wednesday night (Oct. 17) at the CMT Artist of the Year ceremony, but true change is going to require active fan participation. Choose a new artist you're not familiar with and spend two minutes listening. Share with a friend. Help the next generation of country women in the fight for equal representation. Be a part of the women in country music solution.
