Jason Aldean recently told the Washington Post that, “… a lot of times, it just seems like I can’t distinguish one from the other sometimes if I just listen to them, you know? A lot of times they just sound really similar to me,” about female country music singers, so we’ve put together a quick guide to female country music singers for him.
Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood
Miranda is on the left, Carrie on the right. And to be fair, he did say he could tell these two apart.
First female country music singer to have a debut single reach No. 1 since Carrie Underwood did it in 2006. She’s tall, like Carrie, but they don’t sound alike.
Kacey is a singer-songwriter with two GRAMMYs, a CMA Song of the Year award winner and she wears boots that light up.
Reba McEntire stands out because no one sounds like her or has fiery red hair like her.
Yes, Cam looks like Kimberly Schlapman of Little Big Town, but she’s a solo artist with a single, “Burning House” tearing up the charts right now. Not the same person.
Kimberly Schlapman and Karen Fairchild
Yes, these two are in the same group. The voice you usually hear on tracks is Karen, the brown-haired beauty. These two are best friends. Karen is married to Jimi, he’s the one with short hair that isn’t blonde.
Hillary is the only female member of Lady Antebellum. She’s the one who has the longer brown hair. She’s good friends with Kelsea Ballerini, but doesn’t look or sound like her.
This one is tough, because Jana Kramer also has long brown hair, like Kacey Musgraves. But, they sound nothing alike. Jana used to be on “One Tree Hill.” Kacey has never starred in a TV show about any sport (Jana was also in “Friday Night Lights).
Every single thing about Dolly Parton is unique to her. Her look and sound is all her own.
Surely, Mr. Aldean knows Trisha. He opened for once in Georgia, many, many years ago. Just in case– she’s married to Garth Brooks.
Faith is married to Tim McGraw, but has sold 40 million albums all on her own.
Admittedly, it took us longer than it should have to finally figure out who was who in this duo, but we’ve got it down now! And if they sound alike it’s because they are trying to harmonize. Tae is on the right and plays the guitar left-handed; Maddie is on the left.
Mickey does sound like someone else– an angel from up above. She’s been touring with Brad Paisley all summer and no, no one else in all of country music looks like her.
