This pic is more than just girls from @cmt Next Women of Country. You see that girl @carlypearce at the top left? So, I had been a fan of hers before I met her that day. I turn around, see her and say, “oh my gosh I’m such a fan.” She was so sweet and was just trying to kinda hide out in the background. But me being my social media self suggested that we take this selfie and made her get in the pic lol. That was 2 years ago and now she has the number one song in country music! She kept pushing when no one else would and it paid off! All these women in this pic have gone on to have successful careers. I’m here to tell you that women are so important, we matter, and it is an honor to know them. Carly, today is your day! Congrats girl!
