Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, and Dolly Parton revolutionized country music and blazed a trail for future generations of female artists. With their chart-topping hits and record-breaking sales, they wove threads of contemporary womanhood throughout the tapestry of country music. In Trailblazing Women of Country, today’s rising stars of country music bring the music and legacy of Patsy, Loretta, and Dolly to life.

Trailblazing Women features soloists Miko Marks, who was named one of CMT’s “Next Women of Country” in 2022, and Nashville-based artist Kristina Train. The pair will be supported by a five-member, all-female band.

Cline, Lynn, and Parton harnessed country music’s rich storytelling tradition to offer their uniquely empowered – and unmistakably female – perspective on issues faced by women of their day. Their shared legacy of musical excellence, earthy glamour, and unapologetic authenticity continues to resonate with listeners of all ages and backgrounds in the 21st century.

ABOUT MIKO MARKS • Thirteen years after her last album, Miko Marks had all but given up on her career aspirations after she was effectively told by Nashville executives that her music was good, but she wouldn’t sell. In 2021, she re-emerged with Our Country, which garnered nods from NPR, Rolling Stone, NY Times, WSJ, and more. Marks was named to the 2022 Class of CMT’s Next Women of Country and participated in the first Equal Access program with mTheory. On October 14, 2022, Miko released her widely anticipated album, Feel Like Going Home, and made her Grand Ole Opry debut on the same day. The album landed on several year-end “best-of” lists including Rolling Stone, NPR, Paper, Garden & Gun, and more. In March of 2023, she was included in the American Currents exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville.

ABOUT KRISTINA TRAIN • Hailing from Savannah, Georgia, Kristina Train is a musician who splits her time between Nashville and the UK. Her debut album premiered on Blue Note Records followed by a second solo album released on Mercury Records. She has toured the world as a feature vocalist and violinist in Herbie Hancock’s band, collaborated with Dr. Dre, performed at The Nobel Peace Prize ceremony, and made a fan of Bruce Springsteen. Train’s voice is pure, richly embodied, and crystal clear, with a recognizable nod to the vocal traditions of Nat King Cole, Roy Orbison, and Dusty Springfield. While her take on modern crooning is familiar, it can also be excitingly idiosyncratic, as showcased in her latest releases, Rayon City and Body Pressure.
