    In Today's Country, Women Roar While the Menfolk Whimper

    You don't have to see the numbers to get that country radio skews female these days. The hatted hunks who a generation back might have had ramblin' fever now sing of sunny-forever fidelity that would be right at home on the last page of a Harlequin.

    I disagree. There's still a huge gap in the way men and women are treated in country music. All you have to do is look at the number of men nominated for huge awards vs. women, the number of men in big awards categories and so on.

    There's a reason why Carrie and Taylor are the only females who have broken through to be huge artists in country music.
    I think it's sad that the industry always brings up this problem, but yet they are a large part of why this has happened for so many years.

    ^I agree with you. There may be women at the top more often, but they are the same women over and over. New female artists don't get nearly the break that the new males do.

    Thanks so much Danielle!
