"To because it was that first moment. You know where I just kind of gobsmacked by her talent and I was so happy when I heard that it was making the high women record this is actually like sounds like a humble brag, but I was in the studio watching the high women doing some recording and Dave Cobb was there the producer of the record and he told me that it was on there. And I think I literally like well done. I was so excited. I know, it's just some really genius writing. Yeah, it's a great song. Great. Well, so as unique as Marin is, Mickey guyton, even more unique. Yeah, she is Mickey guyton same, you know, came from Texas, moved to Nashville around ten years ago. Mickey was not in bands growing up. She sung in shirt. And she moved out to LA for a while because she felt like she wasn't, you know, country music wasn't a place for a black woman. But she grew up loving LeAnn Rimes and Dolly Parton. And her sound, I think, is so interesting to look at in the context of the other two because it's very, I think it could exist alongside, you know, Carrie Underwood on country radio. Powerhouse vocals, you know, appeals to a mainstream or a pop country fan. But on her album that just came out last year, I've lost track of time. I think it was last year. You know, really pushed the limits of songwriting and her own sort of activism in place. And agency is a black woman in country music. And I saw her sing this song. What are you going to tell her at the rhyming during a country radio seminar showcase about a month before the COVID shutdown? And this was after, you know, she had been in Nashville for almost a decade and feeling like nothing was ever going to happen for her. And she said in the song, what are you going to tell her about the lyrics? What are you going to tell her when she's wrong? You know, this little girl with dreams that she can be anything. And realizing that, you know, she might be wrong because this country still hasn't changed enough. And she sung this to a group of, you know, 90% white male radio programmers. You know?

"Country that's in a minute on sound opinions. And we are back. If you're a regular listener to this show, you probably know plenty about the many, many amazing female artists that are making country music today. We certainly are fans of many of them. But if you're only getting your information from the country music industry and the radio establishment in that genre, you might not even know these artists exist. That's right, Jim, our guest today, Marissa moss, has a great new book on the phenomenon called her country. In that book, she focuses on three artists maren Morris, Mickey guyton, and Casey musgraves, three artists that we've talked about extensively on the show. She discusses the challenges they face in overcame in the last decade. And I began our conversation by asking why she chose those three artists in particular to focus on. I chose this three because they all have very different paths to unconventional success in country music. But they're also all three from Texas and kind of a relatively close geographic area. And that gave me a kind of fine tune way to examine their careers in ways that were kind of like comparing and contrasting with the common denominator of being Texas artists. And making that same journey in Nashville around the same time. And also in Texas, you have Miranda Lambert coming from Texas. You have the chicks. You have, I mean, how you Beyoncé and lizzo. Some going on there. And my dad lived in Texas for many years, and I have, you know, I spent summers there, you know, so I have a connection kind of a fascination with it. Well, in Texas with the reputation, right, Marissa of being the alternative Nashville. The anti Nashville, the outlaw. It doesn't come out exactly where it's, you know, the first half is Texas in the second half of Nashville, of course. But, you know, I wanted to have a bit of that dual life and I kind of wanted to say and have this subtext in there of talking about talking about Texas in a way that is really reflected in what's going on kind of a nerd conversation right now. You know, if you even politically in the way that people will kind of dismiss Texas and say, you know, these terrible bills or something will come across and people will say, oh, you know, will everyone in Texas deserve that, you know? Yeah. And I wanted to kind of have that exploration into Texans and southerners and country music fans being far more than people often dismiss them as being. Yeah, we all have loved ones in Texas who are not thinking like the people in the Texas state House. Right. Exactly. And same here is Nashville, you know? Yeah. Yeah, these are iconoclastic artists, no doubt. And Texas is known. I mean, let's go back to Willie Nelson, right? You know, I mean, iconoclasts seem to grow there. Despite what people may think they know about Texas. But it's interesting to me your book sort of addresses a subject that I think is, you know, there's a systemic problem in country music. And it probably could be said just about anything on our society, but it's certainly true in country music. The good old boys club is going to run things. And there are moments. You begin the book in a moment where there seem to be a breakthrough. There had been a number of a cluster of women artists, then Dixie chicks, now the chicks, Faith Hill, LeAnn Rimes, who are big country hits, Shania Twain, and then it went away. The bubble burst, and now we're back to the good old boys club. And guyton and Morrison musgraves are sort of fighting through that. A startling statistic, the Marissa reports that should frame this entire conversation. A mere 16 percent of the country airwaves is devoted to female artists. 16%. And that's actually the high estimation. So sometimes it's different. There's been a bunch of different statistics mostly done by a really great data scientist at a canon and named doctor Jada Watson. She found a lot of times it's 10%. But I'm interested in that fluctuation. Like there be times where it's proven that women can have hits that'll cross many genre lines and become embraced by the public in a massive way, but it doesn't stick. It should have proven that women more than deserve their place at the table, right? And yet that never really seems to happen. Why do you think that is? Man, I mean, it's a lot of reasons. I mean, I think when that period was happening in the late 90s, mid to late 90s. You know, when most people think of country music of that era, you think of women, you know, with the exception of maybe Garth Brooks. If you don't really, if you're not a super country fan, you think of the women you mentioned, fatal Shania Twain, the chicks. I mean, I think it was scary for a lot of people. And I think, you know, there are a lot of elements. It's a really long answer, and I guess in part why I wrote the book, but I mean, you have consolidation happening around, you know, rampant consolidation. Happening around that time, you lead into 9 11 when you have sort of this emergence of patriotic nationalistic country songs that jingoism female ballot doesn't really work up against a song about putting a boot in a terrace ass on a playlist. It's just, you know, it's kind of weird programming. And then you have what happened with the chicks and speaking out against the war in Iraq, there are a lot of elements that were just kind of stewing to make people skeptical of women. To let them indulge their already preexisting misogyny. But I mean, in a more concrete way that the more that you reduce the amount of times that people hear women on country radio, the less familiar, it becomes and therefore people don't react as well to women's voices when you actually do hear it. So we have kind of created this myth that, you know, programmers will tell you a women don't like listening to women or people turn the dial when they hear women on country radio and to some degree we've created that scenario to be true because radio is all about what's familiar. You know, you're in the car, you're like vacuuming, whether you're earbuds in or whatever you want to hear. Stuff that's familiar. And if you're not familiar with women's songs, then you're not going to maybe respond as well to it. It's not like some predisposed genetic disgust towards like high pitched women's voices or like whatever people want to tell you. But it is like that we, you know, we've created this culture scarcity. So much that, you know, women aren't getting those results that maybe make people feel empowered to play them more.

". Ten O three on WTO Monday morning. It's the 4th of July, sunny and 77 now, as we head to the low 90s. Good morning and happy Independence Day. I'm Morris Lewis, with the top local stories where following this hour, America's birthday is here, and this year the celebrations downtown at the national mall are back to normal after two pandemic years. With crowds soon to gather for the events many road closures and parking restrictions in the district are already in effect, the National Park Service is putting on a full firework celebration just after 9 tonight. And if you're planning to head down to the national mall for the fireworks, you're encouraged to take metro, but you'll probably want to leave home earlier than you were planning. Metro's rail capacity will be lower than a typical July 4th holiday. And that means after the fireworks end, you should expect long lines entering stations near the mall. To help handle the crowds and manage the long waits on metro, the system's transit police will be in key positions. It's all hands on deck. Metro's interim general manager Andy off tells our news partners at NBC four, the July 4th celebration is a huge event for the agency. Pre-pandemic, you know, we'd have 400,000 people or so, whether we'll get to that point or not, not quite sure. But it's going to be big. And off says you will see metro transit police at the Smithsonian and other busy metro rail stations near the festivities, it may even get to the point where police will have to stop people before they enter a crowded station to make sure they're not putting too many people on the platform. We're setting folks expectations that it is going to be very busy. Sarah Jacobs, WTO news.

"I'm surprised that I'm surprised that you were looking for the bagels because you know you spent a lot of time in Ohio. Well, you know, again. I'm a little upset with the rams. I will tell you Peter, I was just in St. Louis on Saturday. The day before the Super Bowl game. So I'm being driven from the airport to my hotel, and I asked the driver, what does he think about the rams being in the Super Bowl? He said, you mean the scrams? Short conversation. They are not pleased. They're not mad at the team. They're mad at the owner for in their opinion lying and rooking them, leaving them with a stadium that now is empty. And then bucking out as soon as they could back to back to LA. So there's a strange dynamic in St. Louis about the rams being in the Super Bowl. I see LOL. Yeah. Anyway, so I thought that was a really good game, but I gotta say, I didn't really like the halftime show. It wasn't like princes the weekends or Katy Perry. I mean, the rap songs perform were super fast and not disgusted by some of the lyrics. The N words, the strong sexual content and the anti police lyrics. If I were the NFL next time around, I would make Mickey guyton, Jason aldean Kid Rock, Lee Greenwood and Luke Bryan, the halftime show host or host because I'm because you know I'm pretty disgusted with those songs, not single and then New England give me a break. I'm not single hip hop and rap songs are bad during clean ones, but you know it's a double standard for the NFL, which held ray rice David Pearson accountable through domestic violence, but overlook the previous domestic violence in criminal records of some those performers. And you know, let me just say, let me just say that, you know, I think I feel like you know they have time show got a bit too woke and you know this is why I'm looking for lots of novel entertainment, like the puppy bowl and shows like the show, a good cop on NTD. Thanks for taking my call. You got it. I remember when singers used to do something very novel. It's called singing. That didn't seem to happen very much anymore. Regarding Eminem taking the knee. And he did the knee thing during the performance. And I didn't know that it was taking the knee as in taking the knee against the American flag, a la Kaepernick until somebody else told me that. I thought it was part of the act. But apparently that's what the gesture was for to show solidarity with Kaepernick taking the knee. Which is sweet again giving that the police are all around the stadium. Defending people and defending these performers and given the fact that because of this false assertion that the police are engaging in systemic racism. And the assault on crime DAs and releasing a whole bunch of criminals before their full terms are up. And cashless bail and people out who shouldn't be serving their who should be serving their sentences, crime going up in LA, where the Super Bowl took place shootings homicides up 41%. Over the same number, a couple of years ago. And here you have the people that have been using anti cop lyrics at the Super Bowl halftime show. By the way, what do they get paid? Do you have any idea what they get paid for that for the performance? I would imagine I would imagine they get at least three Pepsi and free face masks, but I'd like to know if you have any idea what they get paid. I mean, it seems to me if I'm a performer. And this is one of the most watched things ever. I do it for nothing. But let me know, let me know if you can.

"I was in the Super Bowl, enjoyed it, go rams, just wanted to let you know on an international setting. Los Angeles is the absolute crown of hypocrisy. That Super Bowl had not a single person wearing a mask, including the mayor was on video as well doing the same thing. All the movie stars, Hollywood is on display. Nobody wearing masks, the employees were forced to wear masks at SoFi Stadium, but that was it. I just want to let you know hypocrisy was on the big screen and the whole world was watching.

"Elizabeth Reese is here, and she's brought us all the dirt street from Hollywood. It's a dirt alert. Hi, guys. We're gonna stop in Nashville first show. Okay, Fine. I've never bean Oh, you haven't You know, you seem to love it, right? I'm a big Nashville fan. Yeah, I think it's really wonderful. It's a great town. I've been there several times over the last Two years. I tended the Tivoli have a plan trip planned for June. But, alas, we will see you know what we'll see. But I can hold on to a little bit of hope. Don't you think? Of course. We'll see that being said there is quite the controversy in Nashville Brewing with the country music community. Being called out for not always being great, And that would be an understatement. So there was a country artist named Morgan Wallen, who was just dropped from his label and is taking a lot of public heat after a neighbor videotaped him outside of his home, yelling and used a very inappropriate racial slur. Um, when referencing another person, And so what happened? Was this neighbor shot? This video made it public. This happened Sunday night. Morgan Wallen goes on and issues an apology saying, you know, he's so sorry he promises to do better. And now country music The community is weighing in so Kelsea Ballerini, who's the country artist, she said. The news out of Nashville tonight does not represent country music. And then another country singer Maren Morris took issue with that and said it actually is representative of our town because this isn't his first quote, scuffle. And he just demolished a huge streaming record last month. Regardless, we all know it wasn't his first time using that word. We keep them rich and protected at all costs with no recourse for her. It is interesting. You know, this has been a long problem. Racism within country music. I mean, it's a problem in this country. It's a problem. Particularly within country music, and I think, um In a certain culture of the South. Right I think is northerners. We can sometimes go. Well, we're better than that. Not true. It's embedded within our country. It displays itself differently, just gonna say differently, having lived in both places for a number of years. Where I lived in the South. People said things out loud, They wouldn't say here. But that is not to say that people here would not say those things. Um they think them they just don't say them or they say them into in a in a more private sector. Yeah, right. Um, it's interesting because then black country artists, which there are very few, I mean, you can like count the number of black country artists. On one hand, Um, a woman named Mickey Guyton, who's a black country artist, spoke her piece about it and said, when I read comments, saying, this is not who we are a laugh, because this is exactly who country music is. I've witnessed it for 10 G de years. You guys should just read some of the vile comments hurled at me on a daily basis. It is a cold, hard truth to face, but it is the truth. She says she's often questioned why she fights to stay in an industry that has shown it hates her at times because of the color of her skin, but went on and explained that she does it because She loves it, and she wants to fight for it. And then she just listed a huge list of country music artists who are great people and ambassadors of the genre and who embody what Chris? What country music should be about part of making a change is acknowledging. The wrong that you have done. And I say that you know in this conversation, but there's multiple other, you know areas of life where where change begins with Just being real right about reality, right? That is so much harder to do than it is to say, because we all tell ourselves a story about everything right? And I hear that Nobody wants that to be the way it is. You know, That's what I hear in that first. Who was it that made that first? This is not who we are. That was Kelsea Ballerini e. I hear I hear What Kelsea Ballerini is trying to do right is trying to say is I don't want this to be who we are right? But But change will never come from that change comes from saying this is exactly who we are. And yeah, I want to be an agent of change in country music has had a long problem. You know, they don't want to isolate or, you know, they don't wanna make. Look what happened to the Dixie Chicks with right? I mean, when they got political, it gets very tricky. The country music fan base. Is, um, passionate about things in a different way than maybe other fans of other musical genres. Also, you'll see Dave Matthews Band fans doing this kind of stuff. They're just high. I also Featherstone hope will begin to change the paradigm that talking about racist political yes. The fact that it is that is not a normal thing that is the way that it manifests itself right now, But that also seems like an excuse or a crutch, right? Because it allows people to say like, Oh, we're not going to talk about politics well, Um okay, but Don't think that I think this actually transcends politics could also argue that everything is polish. I was just gonna say what I wish is that we could understand the nuance.

A Conversation With Country Star Mickey Guyton

"Star Mickey gotten about the state of the genre, and her new single black like me. So, Mickey, we have this tweet from Ric Ward, Who says, I think the lines of country music get blurred. What makes it country I thought the little Naz Exxon Old Town Road was country, but it was kicked off the country charts and before you answer, let me just remind listeners. The old town road Song was a major hit, and it debuted on Billboard's Hot 100 chart and the Hot Countries Songs chart. But then Billboard removed Old Town Road from the list of hot country songs and informed Columbia Records. That's laws Exes label that his Inclusion in that list was a mistake. What do you make of that battle over what is and what is not country music like an answer you that question right now, the whole over the last Eight years I have been hearing Trot beats an army melodies and country music and I've seen men wearing flat billed hats and Timberlands. And Doing a lot of what black culture does. So that is where the lines have gotten blurred and It has been Kind of frustrating for me because As a black woman who has grown up on that music. It was just very odd to me that they would call Little Naz Exxon, not country, but everything else is country. From other men, and that was a huge Dilemma for me. I had a really hard time. Writing songs myself because What was considered country for some people wasn't considered country for me. And that's where the lines have been drawn are blurred. Do you think that line has been drawn based on race that if a white artist had done old town road, it would have stayed in the country charts. I am. Because it wasn't an artist. I don't want to say absolutely. Yes, but I think that would have been a huge factor. Yes. This is something that you have without naming names. You have called out others in your industry for and I again want to go back to this interview that you did You said. I've been called the n word within this industry on DH. If you don't say something, it's saying that you don't care about me that I don't belong. Here is what that says to me. Yeah. What? What do you want your fellow artists in country music to say, I want them to say that they support black lives. Period. Saying you support black lives isn't saying you don't support Blue lives. It's not saying that you don't support all lives. When you don't say that there are black people. There are very few black people within this industry that air trying to find their footing within this industry. And if you're saying your acceptance of us You're not. And you're not saying that. That's how I feel. And I was very nervous when blackout Tuesday happened. I was terrified. I didn't know. If anybody was goingto say they support black lives because I understand that it's scary, especially with in country music because we don't typically express Our opinions on anything. And at that moment, it was more important. To rock the boat and say that you support black lives to let people know within the industry that we matter. Because there's been so many times that we haven't There's been times where I've been at a concert in Sol Confederate flags. Flown waving in my face. And I felt very alone in those moments. And this was a moment and a chance in a time for them to show that racism is not accepted within the country Community period. This is something that you have been grappling with. For most of your life. It seems like you grew up in mostly white neighborhoods in Texas. Yeah, why did you end up going to private school? I went to private school because I grew up and lived in Crawford, Texas. And where I lived in Crawford, Texas. Former Gore governor at the time was Governor George Bush's ranch was right next to my subdivision. And the school that I was supposed to go out there didn't want black kids to go to that school. So my parents had to work to put me in private schools and even in private schools, I still experience racism. There was a time I remember the map of Africa was pulled down and one of my private schools Trinity Lutheran. And two little white kids were saying In a different way. And I remember looking at my teacher and I still don't even understand what that meant. But I knew it was a word that we're not supposed to say. And the teacher didn't chastise them. She just said it's actually pronounced and that was it. Yeah, that's a lot. Luke Tweets. Keep doing you, Mickey. Music is beautiful, and so are you. You're just adding to that beauty of it. Don't stop. Don't ever
