“Women Want to Hear Women With Elaina” Featuring RaeLynn

“Women Want to Hear Women With Elaina” Featuring RaeLynn

Since launching Women Want to Hear Women in June, RaeLynn has been one of the show’s biggest supporters. Every time I’ve bumped into her around town, we’ve talked about finding enough time for her to stop by the podcast to share her story and insight. Thankfully, we were finally able to make it happen—she’s a busy and successful woman!

Texas native first RaeLynn caught our ear as a 17-year-old when she was on The Voice in 2012. Since then, she has moved to Nashville, released her debut album, toured with a number of A-list artists, gotten married and so much more. Some of her biggest supporters include Blake Shelton and Florida Georgia Line, so she’s definitely in good hands. But why aren’t some of her singles gaining more traction at country radio? We get into that and a lot more. Hope you enjoy!

  • RaeLynn
  • Elaina Smith, host of Women Want to Hear Women

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.”
