“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!

Podcast Participants:

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


  • RaeLynn talks about being a military wife.
  • RaeLynn talks about getting support from her group of girlfriends, including Maren Morris, Lindsay Ell and Cassadee Pope.

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.
