Speaking about the movement to promote women in country, Underwood said, “For me, personally, getting to be in a room with Dolly and Reba, those are two women that taught me how to do what I do. And looking forward, I want girls to be out watching this at home and seeing all of us on that stage and getting inspired and thinking, ‘I can do that, too, and I want to be a part of that. Come on!”
In addition to these legendary ladies, Terri Clark, Sara Evans, Crystal Gayle, The Highwomen (Brandi Carlile, Natalie Hemby, Maren Morris and Amanda Shires), Martina McBride, Reba McEntire, Jennifer Nettles, Dolly Parton, Tanya Tucker, Carrie Underwood, and Gretchen Wilson will all take the stage for a “history-making” opening performance.
