Billboard, the leading destination for charts, news, trends and innovations in music, announced its 14th Annual Women in Music Event, Presented by YouTube Music and hosted by Hayley Kiyoko. The high-profile event, held in conjunction with the release of Billboard’s Women in Music issue, will happen on December 12 at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles, California and will honor the most powerful female artists and executives in the industry including Alanis Morissette, Brandi Carlile, Desiree Perez and Nicki Minaj. Additional honorees of Billboard’s 2019 Women in Music event will be announced in the coming weeks.

The Trailblazer Award recognizes an artist who pushes the music industry to evolve by using her platform to amplify different perspectives and improve conditions for future generations of performers. Brandi Carlile has enjoyed her most successful year to date, with multiple Grammy wins and several high-profile festival and awards show performances, but has served as a progressive symbol within the country and rock communities for over 15 years. A beloved figure within the LGBTQ community and an advocate for refugee and broader humanitarian rights, Carlile toured behind her acclaimed 2018 album By The Way, I Forgive You this year, and also scored a top 10 album with the self-titled debut of the country-folk supergroup, The Highwomen.

“Billboard’s Women in Music is an annual opportunity for us to celebrate influential women from across the industry who are impacting both business and culture,” said Hannah Karp, Billboard’s Editorial Director.  “We’re thrilled to highlight another diverse group of women this year who’ve pushed limits, broken boundaries and defined the decade.”

The 14th annual Women in Music Event and Red Carpet Pre-show will stream live at YouTube.com/Billboard starting at 6pm PT/9pm ET. Guests will enjoy specialty PATRÓN tequila cocktails throughout the evening as we celebrate and raise a glass to the most influential women in music. 

This year’s event will be sponsored by YouTube Music, American Express, Bumble Bizz, FIJI Water, Honda, JNSQ Wines, Live Nation / Women Nation and PATRÓN Tequila. For more information please head to https://www.billboard.com/women-in-music and be sure to follow on Instagram & Twitter at @billboard #BBWomenInMusic.
