Custom Jackets, Now and Then

Here’s a selection of women—who have been tainted or touched by country music—making wonderful songs and recordings. Mostly, I hear the influence of country music from before country acts went all pop and rock—now everyone swapped places, just a little. Some of these folks do come from Nashville, but many others have nothing to do with Music City USA whatsoever…but it seems to me they must have absorbed just a little of that influence somewhere along the line, in the blood or in the air.
