Vol. 1: “Women Want to Hear Women” With Elaina Smith

Nash Nights Live co-host Elaina Smith has teamed with Nash Country Daily for an ongoing conversation that we want you to be a part of.


“Women don’t want to hear women.”

It’s a phrase that you may be familiar with in 2018. It’s something that has been said in country music for years. I can’t tell you how many female artists have told me they’ve heard this from bosses, program directors and industry friends. It’s a phrase I have heard in reference to female radio personalities, like myself. In fact, it’s been said to my face on multiple occasions.

I want to reclaim this narrative and prove that women do want to hear women. I want to be a part of moving this conversation forward . . . with YOU!

I want to highlight strong, talented female artists and give them the attention and love they deserve. Female artists have an underrepresented voice in our industry—their messages and representations are important to me, and hopefully you.

So here’s the deal: I’ll be checking in regularly with Nash Country Daily to highlight female country artists through my interviews, podcasts, playlists and opinion pieces. I want to share the reasons I love these artists and help you “discover” them.

This is going to be a group effort, people. Tweet @ElainaDSmith or @NASHCntryDaily to let us know who we should highlight and what questions you want answered. Make sure to use the hashtag: #WomenWantToHearWomen.

To get the conversation kicked off, I’ve curated my first “Women Want to Hear Women” playlist, which is packed with 13 powerful women: Cam, Ashley McBryde, Clare Dunn, Abby Anderson, Maren Morris, Cassadee Pope, Kacey Musgraves, Stephanie Quayle, RaeLynn, Leah Turner, Lindsay Ell, Caitlyn Smith and Kassi Ashton.

Watch Tim McGraw Announce That Nashville Will Host the 2019 NFL Draft

The NFL Draft is coming to Nashville in April 2019.

NFL owners approved Nashville as the host city, besting bids from Las Vegas, Cleveland, Kansas City and Denver.

The three-day event on April 25–27 will mean a multi-million-dollar boon for Music City, as the Draft draws around 20,000 tourists and is watched by more than 45 million people via television and streaming.

Tim McGraw, who has been a vocal supporter of bringing the Draft to Nashville, teamed with former Nashville Titan Eddie George to make the NFL Draft announcement via Instagram.

“The 2019 NFL Draft is coming to Nashville,” said Tim, in part. “The future is now.”

More Info on Jake Owen in the Nashville Golf Open

THE OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE:

Country music star Jake Owen to compete in

Web.com Tour’s Nashville Golf Open

benefiting the Snedeker Foundation

Award-winning country music artist to compete in 2018 on unrestricted sponsor exemption

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Web.com Tour’s Nashville Golf Open Benefiting the Snedeker Foundation announced today that Jake Owen will compete in the 2018 event, to be contested at Nashville Golf & Athletic Club the week of May 21-27. Owen will maintain his amateur status in the event and will compete on an unrestricted sponsor exemption.

Owen is the second high-profile name to earn an exemption into a Web.com Tour event this year, joining 2017 NBA champion and Golden State Warriors All-Star guard Stephen Curry, who competed in the Ellie Mae Classic at TPC Stonebrae in August.

“It’s so cool to have been awarded a sponsor exemption to play in the Nashville Golf Open,” said Owen. “I am truly honored to have this opportunity to play golf with guys whose work ethic I admire so much, like my buddy Brandt Snedeker. I know how hard everyone works to get to play in these PGA TOUR tournaments. I’m really grateful, and I can’t wait for this week in May 2018 to get here.”

Owen has participated in several PGA TOUR Pro-Ams, including The RSM Classic last week on St. Simons Island, Ga., where he played alongside tournament host and World Golf Hall of Fame member Davis Love III. He has partnered with 2015 FedExCup champion Jordan Spieth at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am each of the last four years, receiving “The Arnie Award” during the 2017 event alongside Peyton Manning and Phil Mickelson, as part of Golf Digest’s “Golfers Who Give Back” event.

“I’m very excited to have Jake in the NGO field next May,” said Snedeker. “He’s shown that he has the ability to compete on this level with his play at various TOUR events in the past. Mandy and I were thrilled to learn of him winning an ‘Arnie Award’ earlier this year for work done by the Jake Owen Foundation and it’s only fitting that we recognize his charitable work as much as we do his golf skills. He’s a great fit for the NGO on so many different levels!”

Owen, who resides in Nashville, has released five studio albums, including AMERICAN LOVE in 2016, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart and No. 4 on the Billboard 200 all-genre chart. The album’s lead single “American Country Love Song” topped the Billboard Country Airplay chart on September 17, 2016.                                                                                                     

In 2008, Owen was a Grammy Award nominee in the category of Best Country Collaboration With Vocals. The Vero Beach, Fla., native was named Top New Male Vocalist at the 2009 Academy of Country Music Awards, and earned Breakthrough Artist of the Year honors at the American Country Awards in 2012.

“It’s really exciting to be able to include Jake in our 2018 event,” said Nashville Golf Open Executive Tournament Director Patrick Nichol. “He will be a great addition and we look forward to a great event in May. Having Brandt, Jake and the Snedeker Foundation involved is quite an accomplishment for a tournament in only its third year. We have been very pleased with the support and our growth of the tournament in the market. Our goal is to be the best event on the Web.com Tour, and this certainly elevates our tournament.”

In May of this year, the Snedeker Foundation was named as official charitable beneficiary of the Nashville Golf Open, marking the first time a Web.com Tour graduate had lent his name to a Web.com Tour event. Founded in 2012, the Snedeker Foundation has raised more than $1 million for several different charities across Middle Tennessee. The Foundation supports a variety of efforts on both the social and athletic fronts, including Our Kids, which provides expert medical evaluations and crisis counseling services in response to concerns of child sexual abuse, while also working to increase community awareness, education and training about child maltreatment.

Carrie Underwood, Shania Twain & Karen Fairchild Share Sweet Mommy Moments for Mother’s Day

Carrie Underwood, Shania Twain and Little Big Town’s Karen Fairchild shared some sweet mommy moments in honor of Mother’s Day on May 13.

“There isn’t anything that means more to me than sitting on the bench and eating a grilled cheese sandwich with this little guy who calls me Mama. There isn’t anything better than that. He’s just a little miracle. I went from dreaming about him to eating grilled cheese sandwiches and ketchup with him, and I could never have dreamed this up—how good it could be, and it just gets better every day.”


Shania Twain, mother of Eja Lange, 16

“It’s such a joy to be a parent. So, I relate to all the mums out there who are getting all their love and appreciation from their kids, and I hope, when you’re a kid, a child of somebody, show your mum you love her, because it means everything.”


Carrie Underwood, mother of Isaiah Michael Fisher, 3

“We don’t really have like any Mother’s Day traditions. I feel like I remember me and Dad making breakfast for Mom like once as a kid. I’m pretty sure we just made a giant mess in the kitchen and we never did that again, so. Being on the other side of things, I obviously don’t expect anything from my 3-year-old, but my husband’s really good at getting presents from, quote unquote, Isaiah. It’s really sweet, because he likes to bring me things. He’s such a sweet little guy, and anytime he’s outside, he’ll pick me flowers and things. So, I’m like, ‘You’re learning. You’ve already got me wrapped around your finger, and then you do stuff like that, and it’s even more so.’”

Watch Chris Stapleton’s Surprise Performance of “Tennessee Whiskey” at Justin Timberlake’s Nashville Concert

Justin Timberlake treated fans at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena to a two-hour set during his Man of the Woods Tour on May 9.

The set included a not-so-surprising—but still electrifying—appearance by Chris Stapleton, who launched into super stardom on the very same stage during the 2015 CMA Awards as he collaborated with Justin on “Tennessee Whiskey” and “Drink You Away.”

During the second hour of the Man of the Woods show, an unannounced Chris joined Justin to duet “Say Something,” a tune the pair collaborated on for Justin’s 2018 Man of the Woods album.

After the song, Justin let the fans know that Chris’ night wasn’t over yet.

“Now you know I can’t let you leave without playing this song,” said Justin as his band began jamming “Tennessee Whiskey,” which prompted Chris to unleash his vocals.

Watch Chris and Justin sing “Tennessee Whiskey” below.

Dolly Parton Makes a Surprise Visit at Dedication Ceremony for Hometown Senior Center

Dolly Parton was in her hometown of Sevierville, Tenn., on May 7 to take part in the dedication ceremony for the My People Senior Activity Center, which features activities for seniors that include exercise classes, quilting, wood-carving and more.

According to the Knoxville News Sentinel, Dolly surprised guests at the center by touring the facility and performing a song. The center was dedicated in honor of Dolly’s parents, Robert and Avie Lee Parton.

“Now of course, when I started Dollywood and the employees there, I thought of them as my family, and they became my people,” said Dolly to the ceremony attendees, according to the Sentinel. “[When we] got involved in the fires up here in the heart of the Smokies, we call that My People, so I was just thinking, you know, I’m looking out at you, and I think you are, all of you, you’re my people, and this is great, and I’m so proud and so honored that I’m a Smoky Mountain girl, and I’m so proud of my home, and I’m so proud of my family.”

Formerly known as the Fort Sanders Sevier Senior Center, the facility was re-named in celebration of its 15th anniversary to reinforce its objective as a place where seniors can stay active and intermingle.

Jason Aldean Drops Lyric Video for New Single, “Drowns the Whiskey,” Featuring Miranda Lambert [Watch]

Jason Aldean’s “You Make It Easy,” the lead single from his eighth studio album, Rearview Town, is the No. 1 song on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart for the second consecutive week. It’s also the only country song released in 2018 that has achieved Gold certification from the RIAA.

As Jerry Reed once said, “When you’re hot, you’re hot.”

Jason is hoping to continue his hot streak with the release of his new single, “Drowns the Whiskey,” which features vocals from Miranda Lambert. Written by Brandon Kinney, Jeff Middleton and Josh Thompson, “Drowns the Whiskey” has the chance to become Jason’s 21st No. 1 single after it hits country radio on May 14.

“The way fans and radio have responded to this record has been really cool for me,” said Jason. “‘Whiskey’ has always been a favorite of mine, but when Miranda came in and knocked out her parts in only a couple takes, I knew it was special.”

Watch the lyric video for “Drowns the Whiskey.”
