I want to talk about woman in music. Which women do you like and which are your favorite no matter if band or solo artist. For the BEA site I can say that Nico from Germany is number one on the overall chart because she is singing with the velvet underground. But what are your favorite female singer?

Alison Krauss, LeAnn Rimes, and Tanya Tucker are my three lady musketeers.

God bless you and them always!!!

Minnie Riperton is indeed pretty great. Maybe not my number one but definitely a new favorite of mine (I just found her music last year).

I'm not sure why, but this post genuinely made me burst out laughing. There's just something about it.

(sorry Turbo, no hard feelings).

I think we've progressed to a point where we don't need a seperate thread for Women in Music, like it's a niche category. I donno, listen to some Katia Labeque or Uboa
