Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn and Dolly Parton revolutionized country music and blazed a trail for future generations of female artists. With their chart-topping hits, record-breaking sales and designations in the Country Music Hall of Fame, their singular voices defied restrictive social norms, proving that women can be at once beautiful and strong, vulnerable and powerful. In an entertaining and inspiring tribute to these trailblazing women, singer/songwriter Miko Marks (named CMT’s 2022 “Next Woman of Country”) and Nashville-based singer Kristina Train lead a five-piece all-star female band in an evening of music that harnesses country’s rich storytelling traditions and the shared legacy of musical excellence and unapologetic authenticity of these unforgettable legends of American music.
