“It seems like women are expected to be so much more than men, which means we have to work that much harder, We’re the ones under the microscope. We’re expected to sound perfect. We’re expected to look perfect all the time. We’re expected to be style-setters, whereas the boys roll onto the stage in their jeans, T-shirts and baseball caps. I don’t know what we all can do to change this. But I do hope it does change. I would love to see more women making their mark in the music that I love so much… There are so many more out there just waiting for their shot. I hope they get it!” - Carrie Underwood on the lack of female artists in the country genre.
