Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift + More Make 100 Greatest Women in Music List
Last week, Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift, Lady Antebellum‘s Hillary Scott and a handful of musical country femmes made it onto VH1‘s 1oo Greatest Women in Music list. The complete list debuted Feb. 13 in a one-hour special that kicked off a five-day series of similar specials. Topping the list as the greatest woman in music was Madonna, with Mariah Carey, Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Adele joining her in the top five.
Country women made quite the showing on the list as well, with Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott sitting at No. 89, Leann Rimes at 62, Miranda Lambert at 58, Taylor Swift landing at 43, the Dixie Chicks at 39, Faith Hill at 37, Shania Twain at 35 and Carrie Underwood as the highest-ranking country lady with a placement at No. 23.
The list features the best women in music in the past 20 years, and last week VH1 aired an hour-long segment talking about a different group of the women each night.
Underwood just released an in-studio video preview of her upcoming single ‘Good Girl’ for fans to enjoy. That single is expected to release Feb. 23, just a couple of weeks after Underwood made an appearance at the Grammys dueting with pop standard luminary Tony Bennett.
