CMT executive Leslie Fram hosts this showcase and discussion featuring artists involved in the media brand’s Next Women of Country campaign, which highlights up-and-coming female country artists. Priscilla Block wrote and recorded “Just About Over You,” which went viral on TikTok and landed in the Top Twenty on both Billboard’s Hot Country Songs and Country Airplay charts, leading Block to a recording contract with Mercury Nashville. She released her first full-length album, Welcome to the Block Party, earlier this year. Ashland Craft released her debut album, Travelin’ Kind, in 2021 and has collaborated on tracks with Brothers Osborne (“I Smoke Weed”) and Hardy (“So Close”). She was also a top ten finalist on the thirteenth season of NBC’s The Voice and has opened for Luke Combs, Ashley McBryde, Morgan Wallen, and Zac Brown Band. After a hiatus from music, Miko Marks released her first record in thirteen years, Our Country, in early 2021 and quickly followed it with her Race Records EP, a compilation of covers of early country, bluegrass, and folk-rock songs. This year, Marks is opening for Ron Pope and Tedeschi Trucks Band on tour. Lily Rose’s song “Villain” gained popularity on TikTok and helped her land a record deal in early 2021. She released her seven-track project Stronger Than I Am later that year and in 2022 is an opening act on Chris Lane’s Fill Them Boots Tour. Hailey Whitters released her breakthrough album, Living the Dream, in 2021 and followed with her album Raised in 2022. She co-wrote the Grammy-nominated song “A Beautiful Noise,” which was recorded by Brandi Carlile and Alicia Keys, and her songs have also been recorded by Alan Jackson, Little Big Town, and Martina McBride. Whitters has opened for Luke Combs and Midland.

Stream on-demand on the Museum’s YouTube channel, Facebook page, and website starting with the premiere on Tuesday, July 19, at 7:00 p.m. central.
