Format: 2CD

Cat No: NOT2CD761


There is a strong argument for calling country music ‘white man’s blues’, but that denies the fact that so many of the best country records were made by females. One of the most famous country songs after all is Stand By Your Man, but don’t be misled by the title. These were largely tough, feisty females making their way in a man’s world. Decades before the Spice Girls, there was girl power in country music!
