WOMEN ARE WALKING THE LINE
9/25/17

Women Walk The Line, a collection of essays telling women's stories in country music and Keith Urban's favorite afternoon read as seen on the right, is hitting stores this week. Edited by our own Nashville contributor Holly Gleason, the book features narratives from and about the roles women have played in shaping iconic personas and sounds. 

The essays are intimate revelations from 27 writers of a highly diverse range of disciplines and walks of life. The anthology includes reflections from SiriusXM's Meredith OchsUSA Today critic Elysa Gardner, Fisk University's Poet in Residence Caroline Randall Williams and more.

In addition to earning the #1 spot on Amazon's Country Book chart, Woman Walk The Line rose to #15 on the online giant's All Music Genre list. In its release week, the anthology managed to sell through Amazon's initial order.

"I think people want to embrace humanity and inspiration... need to believe that the music they love matters." Said Gleason. "Reading these twenty-seven essays that touch on every phase and turning point, the music and women who make it absolutely define these moments—and people responded."
