Sara Evans Hoping Country Returns To Better Gender Balance


(Nashville, TN) -- Sara Evans is among the many stars lamenting the predominance of male artists on country radio. The singer says the woman's perspective is an important part of the genre's tradition. She adds that country music today isn't lacking in artists who deserve the chance to continue that tradition and be heard.


Evans says back in the 1990s, when she was starting out, if country radio wasn't "dominated by women, it was even." She recalls that 20 years ago Martina McBride, Faith Hill, Lee Ann Womack, and the Dixie Chicks were just some of the many female artists who were prominent in the genre.
