The topic of female airplay in country radio is a current and on going discussion. While Stingray country stations do proudly support and play the women of country on a daily basis, we felt International Women’s Day was a great opportunity to shine a light on how many amazing female artists there are in the format. By playing and celebrating them all day long, we hope to contribute to the collective efforts for more gender parity on country radio.
International Women’s Day will be celebrated on Sunday, March 8, 2020 from 6:00am to midnight by playing songs only by female artists or female led groups on 19 Stingray Radio properties across Canada.
