Jennifer Nettles will be honored with the inaugural CMT Equal Play Award.
The Sugarland member and solo artist will be presented with the award at the 2020 CMT Music Awards on Wednesday, October 21.
The award will recognize Nettles’ ongoing advocacy for women and for all diverse voices in the music industry, as she works to have more female voices heard on country radio stations to reach a point where men and women are represented equally.
“As a proud part of the beautiful legacy of women in country music, I am honored to be the first recipient of the CMT Equal Play Award,” Nettles said.
She added, “I look forward to celebrating the contributions of women, and all marginalized communities, within the country music format, and I am motivated in encouraging the non-artists, executives and investors in the industry, to do the same.”
