Why Are There No Women on Country Radio? | Kacey Musgraves

Hey, Country Radio! Here Are Six Women Whose Music You Should Be Playing

Originally posted 05/15/2014 10:00AM

Spend any time at all listening to country radio these days and the gender gap becomes clear. With the occasional exception of Miranda or Carrie, you'll be hard pressed to find a female voice on the air – or a song about something other than drinking on a dirt road/in a field/on the beach/in a truck.

And that gap on country airwaves seemed all the more vast after listening in at Keith Urban's All 4 the Hall benefit for the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum last week. From hard-rocking Brantley Gilbert to Reba McEntire's traditional twang; from Urban's pop stylings to Mary Chapin Carpenter's Americana vibe; from Underwood's pipes to Kacey Musgraves's storytelling, the lineup was a reminder of how big a tent country music can be.

Country Singer Holly Williams Gets Married

How much fun did Holly Williams have at her Nashville wedding Sunday evening? Her dress tells the story, the country singer says.

"I'm looking at my Vera Wang exclusive gown on the hotel room floor and it is covered with mud and ripped to shreds," she tells PEOPLE with a laugh. "The grandkids will think I was a wild one."

Despite the couture carnage, the nuptials between Williams, 28 – the granddaughter of country legend Hank Williams and daughter of Hank Jr. – and drummer Chris Coleman, 29, were all southern elegance.

Held at Cedarwood, an 1830s farm estate in Nashville, the ceremony took place outdoors where guests, including Kid Rock and Rascal Flatts' Jay DeMarcus (who sang a solo version of "Bless the Broken Road"), were seated on church pews decorated with lavender sachets. Antique chandeliers hung from nearby trees.

VIDEO: Holly Williams (Hank Jr.'s Daughter) Keeps It Country

Originally posted 06/16/2009 09:30AM

As the daughter of Hank Williams Jr. (more than 70 albums), and the granddaughter of Hank Williams (country music legend), it's safe to say that Holly Williams feels a little pressure as she releases her second album, Here With Me, with this exclusive first-look video of "Alone."

But, says Holly, 28, "It's a healthy amount of pressure, enough to keep me working hard, but not enough to make me sleepless." Plus the security of home is never far away – her mother, Becky, joins her on the song "Mama" on The Tonight Show on Friday – and the album, which comes out Tuesday, stays comfortably true to her authentic country roots. "I love sitting down with just me and a piano and a guitar," she says. – Katie Kauss
