“Women Want to Hear Women With Elaina” Featuring Kalie Shorr

“Women Want to Hear Women With Elaina” Featuring Kalie Shorr

Kalie Shorr has been carving out a name for herself since moving to Music City five years ago . . . and she hasn’t let a little thing like the lack of a record deal stand in her way.

Since 2016, Kalie has released three EPs, and as one of the co-founders of the all-female, singer-songwriter collective Song Suffragettes, the talented 24-year-old has been an incredible champion for women, not only in country music, but in all genres. The group’s 2018 song, “Times Up,” which Kalie co-wrote, addresses issues of gender inequality and sexual misconduct in relation to the #MeToo movement.

We talk about Kalie’s journey, shocking ways she’s been told “no” in the industry, her music and so much more. Hope you enjoy!

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde’s This Town Talks tour gets rolling next month in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Then for the next 7 months she’ll be crisscrossing this nation playing shows from Georgia to Montana and everywhere in between.

So, with all that travel, and different locations, packing for a tour can present some challenges. Ashley shares one basic piece of advice when it comes to preparing for the road, “At first, learning how to pack for on tour…I really didn’t do a good job. I guess maybe I thought I was leaving for summer camp. So, I would spend a couple of weeks where I overpacked, and a couple of weeks where I under packed. Just let me tell you…if you have to choose between the two – overpack. You can put those clothes away when you get back.”
