Dear Country Radio: Is Lettuce Really The Best Part Of A Salad Anyway?

I read an article in Country Aircheck last night, where prominent radio consultant Keith Hill advises his clients (aka radio stations) not only to not play female artists back-to-back, but to even further lower the amount they play female artists at all. For those of you who don’t listen to country radio or pay attention to the charts, let me tell you the amount they play female artists is already criminally low. In fact, in 2014 only 18% of the top 100 songs were female-voiced. Hill argues that playing too many female artists will result in lower ratings. As you can expect, Twitter subsequently blew up, referring to the following quote as #SaladGate.

RaeLynn ‘For A Boy’ – Single Review

raelynn for a boy

 

For a young woman in 2015, RaeLynn sure has a strict 1950s view on gender roles. First we had ‘God Made Girls’ (which I admit I initially forgave, but found increasingly irritating and offensive as time went on) telling us exactly what a woman’s position and meaning in life is, almost exclusively in relation to a man. It was cutesy, it was tweeny country pop, it was at once harmless yet at the same time all the more damaging to country music’s view on women. Locked in the Bible belt traditionalism of the format, women have often been forced into wife and mother roles in the past before being objectified and sexualized during the past few years. As part of the changing demographic of country music, women stopped being the housewives for the hardworking, blue collar men, and started being the eye candy for the college frat boys.

RaeLynn ‘Me’ – EP Review

raelynn me ep

Despite being young, blonde, cute and wholesome (not to mention being championed by modern country’s first couple, Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert), RaeLynn has come up against her fair share of controversy since she left The Voice in 2012. First single ‘Boyfriend’ (which appears on this EP) made top 40 but little else, and RaeLynn was thrown into development for a while, continuing her songwriting partnerships with women like Nicolle Galyon and forging new relationships too. Part of the reason why ‘Boyfriend’ didn’t work in the first place (or so I suspect) is its lyrical content, the narrator announcing she wants the other woman’s boyfriend in a rather blatant and snide delivery that in unashamed in the staking of her claim. “Don’t worry I won’t take him cause I ain’t that low,” she reassures the woman, before reminding her that she is just one of many, and the guy in question will return to her (RaeLynn) as soon as he’s done with the others. Nice.
