    CMT 2018 Artist of the Year Oct 17

    CMT honors only women at annual Artists of the Year show - Herald-Whig -

    By KRISTIN M. HALL Posted: Sep. 11, 2018 7:00 am


    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — CMT is changing their Artists of the Year show to honor only women, including Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert, Kelsea Ballerini, Maren Morris, Karen Fairchild and Kimberly Schlapman of Little Big Town and Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum.
    The move comes as female artists in the genre have been outspoken about the lack of opportunities for them. Women have been shut out of nominations for major country awards, such as CMA's entertainer of the year category for two years in a row, and men overwhelmingly dominate country radio charts.
    CMT senior vice president of music and talent Leslie Fram said she hopes dedicating the entire show to women in country music — past, present and future— will spark a "much-needed change in the industry." The show airs on CMT on Oct. 17 at 8 p.m. Eastern/Pacific.
    "This year, we're evolving the special to reflect what's happening right now in culture and in the lives of our fans," Fram said in a statement.
    The network started a "Women of Country" campaign in 2013 as a way to bring more airplay to female artists, including Ballerini and Morris, and has expanded it into a tour. The network is also doing a day-long "Women of Country Music" takeover across all CMT platforms leading up to their show.
    Three years ago, a radio consultant garnered national attention for recommending that stations limit the number of female country artists they play to boost ratings, using the analogy of tomatoes in a salad.
    Many female artists including Morris, Cam and Underwood have all spoken out against a prevailing opinion in the industry that female fans don't want to listen to female artists. Underwood also recently announced a national tour next year that will include only female opening acts, including Maddie and Tae and Runaway June.
    Additional performers for the Artists of the Year show will be announced at a later date.

    Carly deserves it over Miranda, but I guess they can't have their first ever all-female edition and leave Miranda out. Carly probably deserves it over Kelsea too. Or Hilary Scott. Or the women from LBT. So, yeah, Carly should have been in it. Maren had a huge crossover hit this year, so she deserves to be included.

    One could legitimately say ‘what about so and so’ about several women but I’m going to celebrate the fact that they are choosing to celebrate women.

    I can’t say I’m surprised but it does kind of blow my mind that people on twitter are saying the equivalent of ‘what about the guys’? Seriously, in country music complaining that men aren’t getting enough recognition is just laughable.

    I've been trying to ignore that kind of thing on twitter. Just like I skip over all the negativity in the Cry Pretty Thread. Way too much to celebrate to spend time on negativity.

    Congrats to all the honorees. I think it's funny when people say Carrie doesn't deserve it when she's literally the face of country music for women. The only one who keeps her opry commitments.

    Carrie could of done what Swifty did and use Country music as a stepping stone to an even bigger career in pop.... But she stayed true to Country music and is now taking Country to a new level...Instead of using Country music to get to a new level.. I’m proud to be a fan of such an incredible person!

    Kacey should've been in this mix as well.

    I think it's great they're doing all females! However, I was surprised that Carrie's team posted only a photo of her for it and not the picture with all of them like all of the others did.

    Was it Loretta Lynn who first fought for the Women of Country Music?

    That’s awesome! I’m really looking forward to this show. Both of those groups are really talented. I’m so glad Carrie choosing them is garnering them the attention they deserve.
