Cam believes country music has women pegged all wrong.
The Grammy-nominated singer fired shots at her genre over the lack of female representation, offering a reality check for country music executives.
Cam accused country executives of believing the genre’s core female fanbase almost exclusively want swoon-worthy male artists.
“The majority of country listeners are female (actually true) but apparently we prefer listening [to] male singers so we can ‘dream about them being [our] boyfriend’ (actually said to me),” she tweeted. “Only a dumb person buys music solely based on their sex drive,” she wrote.
Cam called for a shift in perception: “It’s educating the gatekeepers about the false biases they have.”
“Not all women listen to music the same way (duh there are billions of us),” she wrote.
Fun Fact: Zero women were nominated for Entertainer of the Year at November’s CMAs. No woman has won the award since Taylor Swift took home the honour in 2011.
