Feminist Country Anthems

Miranda Lambert is the most-nominated artist for the 2014 Country Music Awards, including nominations for entertainer, album, song and single of the year. And in each of those categories, she’s the only female nominee.

Miranda has certainly been a leader in winning big-ticket awards, scooping up back-to-back wins as the Female Vocalist of the Year since 2010, but a win as Entertainer of the Year would cement her status a woman to be reckoned with in the country world. She'll be in good company: country music has a rich history of lady power anthems and a new wave of women stepping up to call the country boys out on rampant objectification. We take a look at the power players, and the songs the CMAs should be playing if they want to raise the women in their ranks.
