#LetTheGirlsPlay: Song Suffragettes Cover Miranda Lambert’s ‘Automatic’
It's no surprise that Miranda Lambert is a popular artist for the Song Suffragette singer/songwriter performers to cover. Recently the five women took on "Automatic," Lambert's Gold certified hit from Platinum. This acoustic version lives up to that gold standard.
Ella Mae Bowen, Lena Stone, Kalie Shorr, Ashley Gearing and Brianna Nelson are the five artists on stage. Shorr begins as she often does, holding down the song's instrumentation and opening the first verse before giving way to Bowen, who takes the song to the chorus.
It's 17-year-old Nelson that leaves the crowd oohing. Her vocal inflections at the verse bring some pop and soul sensibility to a straight-forward country song. Stone and Gearing take the next verse and chorus before Shorr picks up the bridge and the group takes the song home.
Every Monday night at the Listening Room Cafe in Nashville, the Song Suffragettes share their own music before closing with one group cover. It's an hour-long performance that was designed to give females a place to share songs, make new friends and grow as artists, songwriters or performers. Taste of Country is a proud partner in the #LetTheGirlsPlay movement, regularly covering this show as well as spotlighting one artist monthly.
Look for the next monthly #LetTheGirlsPlay artist to be revealed on Sept. 9.
