The Women Of Country Make A Splash On Music Row With August Installment of The Women Of Country Presents: Carolyn Miller & Friends
The Women of Country made a splash on Music Row Tuesday, August 23rd with two all-female powerhouse rounds during their August installment of “The Women of Country Presents: Carolyn Miller & Friends”. The lineup featured Miller, Kasey Tyndall, Grace Leer, Ava Suppelsa, Sarah Morey and Sydney Mack.
Miller hosted the event, quickly grabbing the audience’s attention with her charm and New York accent. Sarah Morey, Ava Suppelsa, and Grace Leer made up the first round. Rockstar, Sarah Morey, filled in last minute due to an illness and kicked off the show with “Harley.” Her songs and smile were infectious throughout the night. Songwriter Ava Suppelsa followed, sharing songs she’d written including “Salt, Lime, and Tequila” (Ryan Griffin), which went number 1 on SiriusXM The Highway. American Idol sweetheart, Grace Leer performed her recent singles “After 1” and “The Ones Before Me.” The third round consisted of covers by the female country artists who inspire them. Morey selected Morgan Wade’s “Wilder Days,” Suppelsa singing Maren Morris’ “The Bones,” and Leer honored Jo Dee Messina with “Heads Carolina, Tail California.”
Round two followed with host Carolyn Miller, Sydney Mack, and Kasey Tyndall. Miller started the round showcasing her range with “T-Shirt”. Warner Chappell Music signed artist, Sydney Mack gave us a taste of new music and her soulful sound. Kasey Tyndall brought the energy with a strong performance of “Babies” and hard-hitting country sound. The round also consisted of Miller engaging the audience in a fun round of trivia, testing the room’s knowledge on the women of country. The night ended with a cover round, Miller performing Sugarland’s “Stay”, Mack doing a cover of Bonnie Raitt’s “Angel From Montgomery”, and Tyndall drove us home with Loretta Lynn’s “You Ain’t Women Enough (To Take My Man).”
The Women of Country will host their September installment during Americana Fest at 6pm on Tuesday, September 13th at Live Oak. Miller will be joined by the talented Harper Grae and Zandi Holup. Hear songs from the August and September installments on Spotify here.

Off the heels of two recent music releases and the second installment of our new Nashville-based female showcase series “Women of Country Presents: Carolyn Miller & Friends”, Carolyn Miller delivers a soaring power ballad, “Why Do I,” available now on all streaming platforms. This is the second of four original songs set to release in 2022. Listen here.
“Why Do I,” penned by Frank Legeay, McCall Chapin, and Nicole Croteau, with production by Legeay and Michael Mechling, showcases a raw and emotional side of Miller, while putting her powerful and pristine vocals on full display in this heartbreaking track.
“So often, heartbreak songs are about a person being left or broken up with” says Miller. “Instead, this song puts the spotlight on the other person and gives the perspective of someone having to be the 'heartbreaker' and how difficult of a struggle it truly is."
Miller was seen last month on tour with Eli Young Band (joining them on stage for "Even If It Breaks Your Heart") and will be headlining Mercury Lounge in New York City on September 17th. The third installment of "The Women Of Country Presents: Carolyn Miller & Friends" will be at 6pm on Tuesday, August 23 at Live Oak in Nashville, TN.
Today, Nashville singer-songwriter Hannah May Allison releases her debut album, “Thank God For All The Boys”. The title track of the album, “Thank God For All The Boys,” was written as a thank-you to all of Hannah May’s ex’s for teaching her a little more about what love is, through showing her what love isn’t.
When asked about the idea behind the album, HMA responded, “It’s pretty clear through my music that I love writing about love- what it is, what it isn’t, and all the highs and lows it can bring. I love writing about it because it’s something that we all experience, and something we continue to learn more about through every relationship we have. When I wrote this song, I knew it was the perfect way to tie together my album. It might sound strange to thank your ex’s, but I thank God for all the boys who taught me a little more about love, and what I deserve. The songs on the album represent all the different lessons I’ve learned about love so far through dating in my 20’s.”
The album was produced by Zachary Manno, who Hannah May credits for playing a key role in the evolution of her sound through her past single releases. The same releases that started an exciting run that included a Mediabase charting single, over a million streams, and features on popular playlists like Spotify’s New Boots & Women of Country. Hannah May is now looking forward to sharing a larger project with her fans. “Thank God For All The Boys” is out now, and can be found on iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, and wherever music is streamed HERE.
Rising Country artist Ashley Cooke ushers in a new chapter of music with the honest and relatable track “getting into,” available everywhere today. After her head-turning introduction to the genre with her freshman project Already Drank That Beer, “getting into” signifies a new era of music from the artist destined for a “bright future ahead in the Country music genre” (CMT) as the first song since the release of her current radio single, “Never Til Now,” with Brett Young. Co-written by Cooke, Emily Weisband and Will Weatherly, “getting into” lays out everything her future love interest should know before taking the next step. Watch the visualizer here.
“'getting into' serves as my roadmap of all the twists and turns of who I am. It's a fun disclaimer to whoever that future someone is, and lets them know what they're signing up for - the good, the bad, and everything in between. It's been wild to see so many people relating to it and knowing every word already - I'm so pumped for everyone to finally have it!"
The new song comes just weeks after the budding talent's biggest month yet, as she was recently named the only Country artist as part of YouTube's coveted Foundry Class of 2022. Making her way into American households nationwide during her television debut on ABC's “The Bachelorette” with “Never Til Now,” the “tender, romantic ballad” (Billboard) with Brett Young continues to resonate with listeners far and wide. Penned by Cooke and hit songwriter Matt Roy, the “wonderfully romantic” (MusicRow) song about finding love when you least expect it topped Sirius XM's The Highway's Hot 30 Weekend Countdown. Going on to become the most added song on impact date, “Never Til Now” has notched over 57 supporting Country radio stations across the nation.
As her stacked festival season winds down, Cooke gears up to continue building out her stout fanbase on the road this fall as direct support on Cole Swindell's Back Down To The Bar Tour. With momentum and critical acclaim like never before, the recent Big Loud / Back Blocks Music signee readies new music to be released soon.
