You would think that we would be farther along in the thinking about women in country music, but then I see stats like [the one cited above] and realize that women really do seem to get the short end, Underwood told Billboard.
There is certainly not a shortage of talented ladies out there that want so badly to get their fair shot in this business, but there seems to be only room for only a few.
In the interview, the Checotah-raised megastar also said she doesnt believe shed be where she is if not for American Idol and women cant get away with singing partying, beerdrinking, hung-over, truck-driving kind of music.
And you know what? She kinda has a point (though wed love to hear her version of Beer for My Horses).
really have to hand it to Underwood. Between her womens equality

hot-button issue will she tackle next? Filibuster reform? Marijuana
legalization? Climate change? Were on pins and needles here, Carrie.
