Hippies & Cowboys Podcast

This episode features the incredibly talented Emily Scott Robinson, taking time to visit with us and dig into an important topic that has been bouncing around the country music world lately: Equal Play. We, as the hosts of this podcast, have been wanting to have a conversation about the challenges that female artists face in the country music industry for quite some time now, but, being male, and non-artists, we felt as though we needed a female artist to lead the way with the conversation. 

Discussed: 

- CMT making their morning video hours feature male and female artists at an equal 50/50 rate as opposed to their previous 60/40 rules, and the effects that this move has had recently. 

- Challenges that women face as artists in the country music world. 

- The powerful story behind Emily's song "The Dress".
