Reba, Shania Twain, Trisha Yearwood, Martina McBride, Dolly Parton, The Dixie Chicks, Sarah Evans, the list goes on and on of women in country music who have made a huge impact on our lives. If Shania Twain's "Man I Feel Like a Woman" brings out the karaoke queen in you chances are you and I would make the best of friends! One thing that is beautiful about women in country music is their support and admiration for one another. Maren Morris who just recently had a #1 with "I Could Use a Love Song" would crash on Kacey Musgraves Couch when she first made her way to Nashville. Now they're busy planning weddings together and preparing for album releases. The sisterhood that these talented artists share is second to none. In honor of National Women's History Month, here are 3 FEMALE artists to look out for in 2018!

Lindsay Ell: The "Criminal" who has been spotted playing guitar for Carrie Underwood is not just a queen when it comes to slaying the guitar. She is a lyrical genius, and it always helps when the cute blonde who can sing and slay the guitar has a heart of gold and is the sweetest person ever! Hoping her touring with Brad Paisley means we will keep hearing more singles from her.

Ashley McBryde: "They told me I was too old to try and start a career but here I am, not bad for a girl going nowhere!" When I saw her in concert opening for Luke Combs I was blown away. I guess if you could soak a voice in bourbon, throw in some lyrics that hit you in the gut, and add some twangy guitar you would make Ashley McBryde's type of music. "Little Dive Bar in Dahlonega" is her first radio single, and her album comes out the end of March.

Carly Pearce: I remember the first time I heard "Every little Thing" I thought, well talk about taking a horrid feeling, bottling it up and putting it in a song. Carly Pearce can run with the best of them, when she toured with Blake Shelton for the Country Music Freaks Tour, she killed it! Her energy, her voice, her connecting with the crowd, it all was splendid. Cheers to her next radio single!
