This is something of a treasure because we don't really get a supergroup in country like this anymore. I can't say that this is anything bad at all, in fact it's just solid country music and nothing more, done right, with the attitude, and full of great performances. Though I don't think anyone will refer back to this as a Traveling Wilburys sort of thing, because the musicians present here have much more powerful solo material than they do here.

What country music means to The Highwomen is a really palliative shot from the lackness of the female view on stereotyped songs about cowboys and trucks. This self-titled helps out to take a deeb breath and realize the current scenario, while beautiful harmozitations and sweets melodies companion yourself in this long strech of change.

In my mind supergroups (musicians coming together from different projects) rarely work in music. It might have something to do with clashing egos or the writing chemistry just isn’t fully there, but still there have been some exceptions to this and The Highwomen happen to be one of those exceptions. The group is comprised of singers/songwriters that have found success being in the spotlight (Brandi Carlile, Maren Morris) and others that have played more of a supportive or behind the ... read more

I actually really liked this...

It’s a heartfelt, soulful country album with no duds in the tracklist.

The Highwomen are a country supergroup containing Maren Morris, Brandi Carlile, Amanda Shires, and Natalie Hemby. None of their music I’ve been totally in love with. Maren Morris has a few good songs here and there. And Brandi Carlile is pretty decent. However what I did not see coming was this project. This record perfectly mixes old country and new in the smoothest way possible without being generic or annoying, with some pretty great lyrical topics as well. But what I think really ... read more

"The choice to remain in the traditional country sonic space was an intentional choice. And it works well. This is easily one of the most interesting and rewarding country albums of the year; The Highwomen absorb any audience in their harmonies and educate all listeners with their beautifully crafted lyrics. This needs to be the record that moves the needle for women on country radio."

Um "supergrupo" de cantoras country não se vê todo dia. Teve bom encaixe.

Destaques: Highwomen, Loose Change, My Only Child

In a select few music circles, the formation of The Highwomen might be one of the biggest musical events of the year. Brandi Carlile and Maren Morris have the mainstream recognition, but Amanda Shires and Natalie Hemby are also highly distinguished and respected singer-songwriters in the roots music universe. There was no guarantee that four voices with such distinct styles and songwriting methods would gel, but “The Highwomen” is an impressively natural blend. The vocal and lyrical ... read more

This female country supergroup shows the power of women in country with a tastefully diversified and well written album. The lyrical and musical excellence of this album underpins the important and interesting take on female empowerment and modern feminism.

The title track "Highwomen" and its successor track "Redesigning Women" give this concept of powerful females being this constantly changing mold wherever the need arises and that women have always been a front of ... read more

The opening track is epic. That’s storytelling at its finest! Everything else is a hit or a miss. This is just their warm up I feel. This seems so genuine and authentic.

Best tracks:
If she ever leaves me

A mixed bag of country, folk and Americana, but production wise, all of these elements feel uninspired and uninteresting. The vocals are not good too because their voices sound so different.
