The Highwomen is a new highly-anticipated collaborative movement formed by Brandi Carlie, Natalie Hemby, Maren Morris and Amanda Shires. On September 6th they release their debut album The Highwomen, via Elektra Records/Low Country Sound.
Continually demonstrating the importance of inclusion and collaboration, The Highwomen are joined by several guest musicians, vocalists, and songwriters across the album. The project features Sheryl Crow (background vocals, bass), Yola (vocals, background vocals), Dave Cobb (acoustic/electric guitar), Jason Isbell (acoustic/electric guitar), Phil Hanseroth (bass, background vocals), Tim Hanseroth (guitar, background vocals), Chris Powell (drums) and Peter Levin (piano and keyboards), with songs written by Carlile, Hemby, Morris, Shires, Isbell, the Hanseroth twins, Rodney Clawson, Lori McKenna, Miranda Lambert and Ray LaMontagne, among many others.
“Anyone can be a Highwoman,” Belinda Carlile notes. “It’s about banding together, abandoning as much ego as humanly possible, holding one another up and amplifying other women every chance we get. Shoulder to shoulder. One push, one love.”
