The Highwomen drop their second single from the country supergroup’s debut album for Low Country Sound/Elektra Records.
Following last week’s release of “Redesigning Women,” the Highwomen, the collective which features songwriter Natalie Hemby, Amanda Shires, Brandi Carlile and Maren Morris, return this week with “Crowded Table,” a song Hemby and Carlile wrote with kindred spirit Lori McKenna. Both singles are from their self-titled debut album which is set to hit stores on September 6, 2019.
The quartet makes their debut today at the Newport Folk Festival and will make an appearance next week on the July 30th episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
The album features several guests and collaborators across the collection which demonstrates the band’s focus on inclusion and collaboration. Guests include Sheryl Crow, Yola, Dave Cobb, Jason Isbell, Phil and Tim Hanseroth, Chris Powell, Peter Levin and co-written songs from each band member, the Hanseroth twins, Rodney Clawson, Lori McKenna, Ray LaMontagne and Miranda Lambert, among others.
“Anyone can be a Highwoman,” Carlile notes. “It’s about banding together, abandoning as much ego as humanly possible, holding one another up and amplifying other women every chance we get. Shoulder to shoulder. One push, one love.”
