Brandi Carlile, Natalie Hemby, Maren Morris & Amanda Shires Form The Highwomen

The Highwomen, a new collaborative movement formed by Brandi Carlile, Natalie Hemby, Maren Morris and Amanda Shires officially launches today with the release of the group’s debut single, “Redesigning Women.”

Directed by Elizabeth Olmstead and produced by Revolution Pictures, the video features The Highwomen along with special guests Lauren Alaina, Kassi Ashton, Cam, Lilly Hiatt, Wynonna Judd, Catie Offerman, Cassadee Pope, Erin Rae, Raelynn, Natalie Stovall, Tanya Tucker, Anna Vaus and Hailey Whitters.

Of the track, Hemby shares, “‘Redesigning Women’ is the life most women are living today. We juggle so much in 24 hours and I wanted to write a song that reflected the goodness, the madness and the hilarity of it all.”

The single is the first unveiled from collective’s highly anticipated self-titled debut album, produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb, which will be released September 6 on Low Country Sound/Elektra Records.

In celebration of the release, The Highwomen will make their live debut at Newport Folk Festival next Friday, July 26. This landmark performance is their only confirmed full concert to date.

Continually demonstrating the importance of inclusion and collaboration, The Highwomen are joined by several guest musicians, vocalists and songwriters across the album. The project features Sheryl Crow (background vocals, bass), Yola (vocals, background vocals), Cobb (acoustic/electric guitar), Jason Isbell (acoustic/electric guitar), Phil Hanseroth (bass, background vocals), Tim Hanseroth (guitar, background vocals), Chris Powell (drums) and Peter Levin (piano and keyboards) with songs written by Carlile, Hemby, Morris, Shires, Isbell, the Hanseroth twins, Rodney Clawson, Lori McKenna, Miranda Lambert and RayLaMontagne among many others.

“Anyone can be a Highwoman,” Carlile notes. “It’s about banding together, abandoning as much ego as humanly possible, holding one another up and amplifying other women every chance we get. Shoulder to shoulder. One push, one love.”

Brandi Carlile Performs Solo Acoustic The Joke On Ellen

Singer Brandi Carlile took the stage with a moving acoustic version of her Grammy-winning song, “The Joke.” She also chatted with Ellen about her big night at the awards show, where she won three Grammys, and was the most nominated female artist of the night.

Carlile’s appearance on Ellen also had a special significance — during one of her three acceptance speeches at the Grammys, the singer paid tribute to host Ellen DeGeneres for inspiring her to come out as a teenager. “It’s a brave thing to do, too,” DeGeneres tells Carlile after the performance. “Most people that are performing, they worry about their career, so it’s a brave thing for you to be open and out.”

See Brandi Carlile Sing For Women In Prison In New Mini-Doc

“My greatest heroes have really paired their music with humanitarian efforts, activism, so I wanted to do that right away,” Brandi Carlile says in a mini-documentary depicting her work with her own charitable Looking Out Foundation. The short film chronicles Carlile’s visit during the holidays to the Washington Corrections Center for Women in Gig Harbor.

For the past 10 years, the Washington native has gone inside to perform an acoustic set for inmates. In the above clip, shot during the 2017 holiday season, she sings her deeply personal “The Mother,” which she wrote after the birth of her first child, daughter Evangeline. Carlile is also seen being presented a Christmas wreath made by the inmates.
