“Women Want to Hear Women With Elaina” Featuring Delta Rae

“Women Want to Hear Women With Elaina” Featuring Delta Rae

A few weeks ago I mentioned that I really wanted to start involving more men into the Women Want to Hear Women conversation, because the only way to change the conversation is by working together.

I thought the perfect guests would be the men and women of Delta Rae. The group, composed of two women and four men, released a female empowerment anthem on Oct. 19 called “Hands Dirty.” In a bit of a plot twist, band member Ian Hölljes was the initial writer of the song before his sister Brittany stepped in to work with him on it.

This band is an example of how men and women can work together to better champion the WWTHW movement.

I absolutely love this conversation, and I hope you do too! ​Plus, wait until you hear Delta Rae cover Cam’s “Diane.” It will blow you away.

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
