Panel Discusses Obstacles Women Face In Country Music

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - Before the ACM Awards, a Middle Tennessee State University official helped coordinate a panel discussion about obstacles women face in country music.

MTSU Recording Industry Chair Beverly Keel and the founders of "Change the Conversation" were joined by singer/songwriter Cam.

Keel and her colleagues formed the coalition in 2014 to fund research, mentor young women, and host events to allow industry experts to share their insights at a time when many said women don't listen to country music.

A group of MTSU students have also traveled to Las Vegas to get a firsthand look at the preparations for the awards.
