Rising Female Artists to Watch in Honor of International Women's Day

March 8th is International Women's Day; a day to celebrate and honor women everywhere. In fact, the month of March is dedicated to Women's History. Country music in particular wouldn't be what it is today without the impact of its female talent. Musicians such as Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton, and many others paved the way for women currently wanting to make their own stamp on the genre. In honor of International Women's Day, here are some notable rising female artists to look out for.

Ashley Cooke

Cooke has been making a name for herself in Nashville for a while, but recently signed her first record deal. Her songs "running back," "it's been a year," and "back in the saddle" offer a newfound perspective on popular country themes. In 2022, she performed her duet "Never Till Now" with Brett Young on The Bachelorette, which opened Cooke up to a wider audience. She will be joining Luke Bryan as a special guest on his summer tour as well as making appearances a several festivals.

Carter Faith

Faith offers emotive lyricism akin to Taylor Swift, as well as honesty and candor to match Kacey Musgraves. In many ways, Faith feels like a breath of fresh air in today's country music. Her debut EP Let Love Be Love showcased her unique voice to plenty of new fans. Her songs and ability to express herself have stuck a chord with a growing loyal fanbase. Her song "The Devil's Still Down In Georgia" and her appearance on the remix of Corey Kent's "Wild As Her," have helped her revel even more in her creativity.
