With CMA nominations out, the Female Vocalist category was getting some attention. Mostly because Taylor Swift was nominated again and people argued the age old argument that she isn’t even country.(Side note, the nominations were before her official announcement of a pop album) but what this really brought to attention was the fact that Taylor was most likely thrown in there because of the lack of other options. But here’s the thing, we DO have options. We have lots of options.
Two popular female country singers that didn’t make the CMA cut were Danielle Bradbery and Cassadee Pope. Of course they haven’t seen much radio hype or chart success as of late, but they’ve proved their worth with some solid vocals and songs. I’ve often wondered if their stigma of being “young” country women has hurt them. Or the fact they are constantly lumped together.
Do YOU think they should’ve been included?
