Fresh off of hosting CMT’s Next Women of Country on Tuesday morning (Nov. 8), Raelynn headed over to the BMI songwriters awards that evening to continue spreading the word about females in country music.
One Country‘s Kelly Sutton caught up with the “Love Triangle” singer and asked about the camaraderie of the females in country music.
“It’s just like going to church—you go every week, you know you love the Lord, but to be able to be around the people that believe in the same thing that you do is awesome. We need to have these events every year to be able to honor each other and love each other and support each other. It’s not about if it needs to happen or not, it’s just about the community of it and I think it’s really important.”
A big supporter of females herself, the Texas native was once shown that support from one of the biggest females in country music, Miranda Lambert, who not only championed the Raelynn and her music, but invited to be a part of the all female lineup of her Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars tour.
“I got mentored by one of the best, Miranda [Lambert], growing up and going on tour with her,” Raelynn said to One Country. “She’s an amazing person and to be able to have a format where they have that community is awesome.”
How’s that for girl power!
