New book chronicles women in country music
A new book by music journalist Marissa Moss chronicles the barriers that women continue to face in the genre.
- Moss' book "Her Country" was officially released Tuesday following months of anticipation within the music industry.
Why it matters: Moss details how women have had to overcome institutional hurdles that make it difficult to get discovered, sign a record deal or have songs played on the radio.
If you go: Moss is hitting the pavement to promote her book.
- The Austin, Texas, bookstore BookWoman is hosting a virtual event with Moss Tuesday at 6pm.
- Locally, Grimey's New and Pre-Loved Music will host an event for "Her Country" on Saturday at 4pm. Moss will read passages and discuss the book with critic Sarah Rodman, with singer-songwriter Kelsey Waldon performing a short set.
