Today’s cover of Billboard features Little Big Town. Kimberly Schlapman, Phillip Sweet, and Karen Fairchild and Jimi Westbrook open up about how divided they believe our country is, what it means to be a woman in country music, their hit song “Girl Crush”, and more.
“There’s probably not a house in America that’s not divided right now, disagreeing about things going on in the country,” Karen says. “If you can’t learn to look across the table and go, ‘I love you and I totally disagree with you, but hey, let’s have a glass of wine…’”
Karen also talked about being a woman in country music in 2017 saying,
“Being Southern doesn’t mean you’re stupid,” says Fairchild, who was born in Gary, Ind., but like the rest of her bandmates has spent most of her life below the Mason-Dixon line. “And being a woman in country music doesn’t mean that you’re simpleminded. You can be a complex, powerful businesswoman — and there’s a lot of that in this business. We have a lot of role models.”
