Introducing our Women In Country month

A women in country month. The very concept has caused some discussion around the offices here. Does the idea of a specific focus on women in music help or hinder? One of the best new artists of the last twelve months thinks that it’s a bad thing. Margot Price has taken issue with #womeninmusic.

Ultimately we thought that our coverage of music is as balanced as anywhere and we probably feature female acts more often than male oriented acts, so why not celebrate some of the fantastic music that women have made in country music over the last year. So here we are. It should also be noted that our interpretation of country expands well across the border into Americana.

We’ll have a great interview with Hurray For The Riff Raff’s fascinating Alynda Lee Segarra, a brutally honest interview with Lauren Alaina, some thoughts from Alva Leigh, as well as chats with Maddie & Tae, Whitney RoseAngaleena Presley, and the Worry Dolls, and a set of artist-curated playlists, amongst many other things. We also have chats with the organisers of SummerTyne in Gateshead and Cambridge Folk Festival to give you a behind the scenes peek. Plus round-ups of the year's best albums, and a few other bits and pieces.

If you’ve got any thoughts on the whole gender debate in music then hit us up on Twitter. We’re always up for a chat.

We need your help

Running a website like The Digital Fix - especially one with over 20 years of content and an active community - costs lots of money and we need your help. As advertising income for independent sites continues to contract we are looking at other ways of supporting the site hosting and paying for content.

You can help us by using the links on The Digital Fix to buy your films, games and music and we ask that you try to avoid blocking our ads if you can. You can also help directly for just a few pennies per day via our Patreon - and you can even pay to have ads removed from the site entirely.
