Billboard and CMT are excited to announce that Caylee Hammack, Ingrid Andress, Lauren Jenkins and The Sisterhood Band will headline the second annual Billboard Live Featuring CMT Next Women of Country showcase on June 3 at Analog at the Hutton Hotel in Nashville ahead of June 5’s CMT Awards.

Caylee Hammack’s powerhouse lead single “Family Tree,” from her forthcoming debut album, received rave reviews upon its release this Spring. Hammack will soon be on the road with Dierks Bentley, Miranda Lambert and Brothers Osborne and can be seen at country music’s biggest festivals including CMA Music Festival, Country LakeShake, iHeartCountry Festival, Faster Horses Festival and more.

Ingrid Andress continues to chip away at expectations of herself and her sound with the release of her latest anthem “Both.” Before becoming an Atlantic Records/Warner Music Nashville recording artist, Andress honed her skills writing with heavy hitters in the music community such as Sam Hunt and Alicia Keys, as well as co-writing hits including Vice’s “Steady 1234” and Charli XCX’s “Boys.”

Big Machine recording artist Lauren Jenkins has been a touring artist since she was 15 years old. The Texas-born, Carolina-raised singer-songwriter has been named an Artist to Watch by Billboard, The New York Times, and Pandora and was also chosen as a member of the “Class of 2019” by influential radio DJ Bobby Bones. Lauren recently completed writing, co-producing, and starring in an original short film titled Running Out of Road that accompanied the release of her critically-acclaimed debut album, No Saint, available now. 

After touring internationally with Steven Tyler in 2018 and opening recent dates for Jessie James Decker, The Sisterhood Band (Alyssa Bonagura and Ruby Stewart) just released a two-pack highlighting their otherworldly harmonies and undeniable gifts as songwriters, not to mention their talents in the studio as producers. Released May 10 on Arista Nashville, the two-pack includes “Bullet,” a song about not just getting out of a bad situation, but getting out in time and intact, and “Get Up And Go,” an urgent and spirited appeal to live in the now.

Following the Next Women in Country showcase, Billboard will host its annual invite-only Country Power Players celebration of country music’s top 100 power players, an elite group of industry executives who have helped helm the success of country music’s most noteworthy talents. The Country Power Players are honored in the June 1 issue of Billboard magazine. The June 4th event will include a brief awards ceremony to honor the Executive of the Year and other notables. The honoree list is confidential; several artists and VIP guests are confirmed to attend.
