There will definitely be something for everyone,” says Shaky Boots founder, Tim Sweetwood.

Rooted in three-part vocal harmonies, southern twang, and pop hooks, Honey County is a female country trio featuring the stacked voices, songwriting and layered guitar work of bandmates Dani Rose, Devon Jane and Katie Stump. As one of Rolling Stone's “Top 10 Artists You Need to Know,” the band has maintained a busy schedule both onstage and in the studio, sharing shows with artists like Lady Antebellum, Brett Eldredge, Jake Owen and Easton Corbin. With a prestigious placement of their song “Love Someone” featured in an episode of CMT's “Nashville” this past summer, and the remix of “Los Angeles” on the NFL Network, the band is continuously working on new music fresh off the release of their EP, High on the Radio, in February.
Trio Auburn Road is sure to mesmerize you with their collaborative harmonies. Comprised of lifelong friends Alicia Paulson, Paxton Martin and Kristen Brown, the trio isn’t afraid to express their true selves and beliefs in their music. In fact, Auburn Road often pushes the boundaries of the modern genre. Releasing their debut album Fancy in 2016, Auburn Road is making waves in California. This year Auburn Road was given the chance to open for the Rascal Flatts at the Toyota Amphitheater. Their latest release “Outlaw” can be found on all streaming platforms and stay tuned for Auburn Road’s sophomore EP “Mustang Vol 1” coming soon.

Although we don't do this often, our overall mission is for gender equality in country music. Here's our picks for the Top 20 Male Artists of 2019:
Originally from Connecticut, JuJu Rossi entrusted musical theatre to strike her passion for music. Deciding to attend Indiana University, it took only a month for JuJu to realize she wanted to pursue a career in music. JuJu finished up the semester and made the move to Nashville, where she lives now.
Off on a new journey, JuJu began writing her own music. Her songs often begin with a hook and tell a story. Her latest single “Kissing Strangers” was written after a breakup. About discovering yourself rather than being seen as the victim, “Kissing Strangers” is a relatable song to most. While JuJu has become an expert at songwriting, her passion stems from performing on stage with a full band. Recently she has had the opportunity to perform at the Whiskey Jam and Doghouse Saloon.
You can watch JuJu’s music video for “Kissing Strangers” and hear her music on all streaming platforms.
I am currently a student at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles as a marketing major. Upon realizing that I wanted to change the way people perceive country music and to help women have a voice, I began The Women of Country in 2015 promoting new female artists and sharing their stories with the world.
