Issue 5 is all about the girls who love country, and we have a fantastic line up of interviews including Anita Cochran: “You Gotta Fight Like a Girl,” Karen Waldrup: living her full potential with Justified, Jessica Lynn “Let’s Don’t, Makes You Wanna Let’s DO!” and our special Featured Artist Lindsay Ell, the Canadian country music artist with a rock, blues, and pop flare, just to name a few.
We have some fantastic “Women in Music” stories, proving once again that behind every successful endeavor…you’re likely to find a Woman! Let’s take Martin Guitar, for instance, the iconic brand that has been a leader for over 100 years and continues to set the standard for acoustic guitars. We share a story with our readers about the women of C.F. Martin & Co. and how they are changing guitar manufacturing.
We have a special treat from a historical perspective which rose from a visit GGM made to a very special museum in Chattanooga named Songbirds Guitar Museum. What a great day that was. To our surprise, we were not only treated to a spellbinding tour of vintage guitars that represented all types of genres including the British invasion, blues, country, bluegrass, and surf music, but we were overwhelmed with the “Six String Queens” exhibit, a dedicated hall of female musicians who brought the guitar to the forefront of the band era. These women carved out their own identity and left their indelible marks on the music landscape.
I know you will enjoy all of this plus our regular gear reviews, lessons and tips, and all the mind games we offer up just for fun. So, let’s dig in and have some fun…music is awesome and being a part of it in any way is indeed a thrill and a privilege…ENJOY!!
