Join acclaimed Nashville-based music critic, academic, and artist development consultant Holly Gleason for an evening celebrating the women of country music and the humanity beneath their song as she shares her lauded book, Woman Walk The Line: How the Women in Country Music Changed Our Lives. In this collection of twenty-seven essays, a diverse group of women writers pay tribute to the female country artists who have inspired them, including Brenda Lee, June Carter Cash, Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, Lucinda Williams, and Taylor Swift. Holly Gleason’s work has appeared in Rolling Stone, The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, and The Miami Herald, among others. A 2016 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame/Case Western Reserve fellow for the Study of Pop Music and a nominee for Best Cultural Reporting at the International Network of Street Papers, she is currently working on Even Cowgirls Get The Blues, an Emmylou Harris biography for the American Music Series.
