From Dolly to The (Dixie) Chicks, THE F WORD is the journey of feminism through song from the first #1 hit for a female country artist in 1952, through to today.
Performed by award-winning Country artist Tami Neilson and her hot rocking band, this rich songbook of country classics explores why songs of feminism were banned from country radio faster than a dirty word!
While THE F WORD is a musical concert experience, it’s also held together with humorous storytelling about the women behind the music. Dr Jada Watson, a Professor of Musicology, opens the show and welcomes the audience to her “presentation” of Songs of Feminism in Country Music, peppering her shocking statistics and “fun facts” throughout.
While delivering a tongue-in-cheek exposé of gender inequality in country music, THE F WORD is such a boots-up, barn-burner of a good time, y’all might just wanna come back now, ya hear.
