A new all female country group is headed our way and Maren Morris is leading the pack!
She teased the newly-formed group on Twitter. The group is called the Highwomen. Brandi Carlile, Amanda Shires and Natalie Hemby are also part of this group.
Brandi said the group just finished recording their first album, and that the idea for the Highwomen stemmed from the lack of female artists on country radio. She said, “We wanted to get together with compassion, and love, and tackle the problem of country music not being an amplifier for women, and we intend to do that.”
Joey Chestnut won Nathan’s annual Fourth of July hot dog eating contest for the 12th time yesterday… He ate 71 franks and buns on the Coney Island boardwalk in Brooklyn. He did, however, fall short of the 74 hot dog record he set last year.
