Why does this matter? Well, because country radio hasn’t historically been interested in promoting the music of women. Whether that’s a reality due to men in radio like Keith Hill—who made headlines in 2015 for suggesting that men are the salad of country radio and women are the tomatoes—or the fault of labels who prefer to support music made by men, is unclear. Or at least, that’s what country music label heads and radio programmers would like you to believe.
Well, I beg your pardon? (I never promised you a rooooose garden) -Lynn Anderson, inducted into the North American Country Music Association’s International Hall of Fame in 1999.
Could it be that WOMEN are the TOMATOES because the TOMATOES ARE THE GOOD PART?!?!?!?!?!
LETTUCE IS JUST A BED FOR TASTY, TASTY TOMATOES.
THIS. IS. SO. DUMB.
And I know a couple of ladies who may agree with me:

Any of THESE ladies ring a bell, Jezebel? Or did you just write an entire article on country music without bothering to find out who these QUEENS were?
How ’bout any of these?

Just a few minutes before midnight, and you think, “Nah, there can’t be anything more stupid today.” Then, out of the blue, Jezebel delivers. https://t.co/jHKqwNR8nu
