A common theme in country music this past year has been "let the girls play," and thanks to the #SaladGate controversy, one thing has become clear: Country music fans want to hear the genre's female artists. These five country ladies nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year at the 2015 CMA Awards are just a few of the genre's beloved voices.
Casey Beathard and Dave Turnbull wrote "The Boys of Fall," which Kenny Chesney released in July of 2010 as the first single from his 12th studio album, Hemmingway's Whiskey. The song debuted at No. 17 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart -- Chesney's highest debut since September of 2007 -- and hit No. 1 in October. It also earned a Top 20 (No. 18) spot on the Billboard Hot 100. Inside, Beathard tells The Boot about the inspiration for the tune.
Brantley Gilbert recently earned his fourth No. 1 song with "One Hell of an Amen," from his 2014 sophomore Just as I Am album. The singer says that, out of all of his hits, this one means the most to him because of its message.
I Saw the Light, the new biopic chronicling Hank Williams' life, isn't coming out until Nov. 27, but Sony Pictures Classics has released new stills from the film -- and they're being revealed exclusively on The Boot.
Hillary Scott, Kimberly Perry and Zac Brown are just a few of the names that help make up some of country's most beloved vocal groups -- and they're all contenders for Vocal Group of the Year at the 2015 CMA Awards.
