#LetTheGirlsPlay: Song Suffragettes Cover Lady Antebellum’s ‘American Honey’
The all-female collective performs a showcase in downtown Music City each week, aimed at spreading the word about the next generation of talented country females. The lineup rotates weekly, and on this particular night, Karli Chayne, Lena Stone, Kalie Shorr, Lauren McLamb and Kasey Tyndall were all on hand to strip "American Honey" down to its essentials, joining their voices for some crystalline harmonies on the choruses and taking turns singing lead in the verses.
Written by Cary Barlowe, Hillary Lindsey and Shane Stevens, the song is a perfect choice, with the female narrator recalling a simpler time in her life: "There's a wild, wild whisper blowin' in the wind / Callin' out my name like a long lost friend / Oh, I miss those days as the years go by / Oh, nothin' sweeter than summertime and American honey."
Those lyrics may resonate powerfully for the Song Suffragettes, who came to Nashville from parts all over to pursue their musical dreams. Song Suffragettes formed as a means for these talented women to join together to promote and celebrate one another. They perform every Monday evening at the Listening Room in Nashville, and Taste of Country is a proud supporter of the #LetTheGirlsPlay movement.
