As we kick off Women’s Month (March), we wanted to focus on five songs that empower women in country music and all walks of life.

From Lady A to Carrie Underwood, Reba, and the ultimate women’s anthem from Shania, we count down what we believe are five of the top songs about powerful women played put in a country song.

  • 5 - "Like A Lady" - Lady A - 2021

    It’s a perfect song for a lady making her own rules for going out in town. The song’s chorus includes the lyrics, “‘Cause I feel like a lady / Sippin’ on tequila with my Levi’s on / A lady / Singin’ to the music playin’ all night long / Yeah, I’m feeling right, I’m living my life, I do what I like / ‘Cause I feel like a lady, a lady.”

  • 4 - "Girl" - Maren Morris - 2019

    From the CMA’s Album of the Year (2019) of the same name. The song’s chorus includes the lyrics, “What you feel is natural / But I don’t wanna feel this anymore / Pick yourself up off the kitchen floor / What you waitin’ for? / Girl, won’t you stop your cryin’? / I know that you’re tryin’ / Everything’s gonna be okay / Baby girl, don’t you hang your head low / Don’t you lose your halo / Everyone’s gonna be okay / Baby girl.”

  • 3 - "The Champion" - Carrie Underwood - 2018

    What a powerful song. It was recorded to serve as an opening theme for NBC Sports’ Super Bowl LII television broadcast. It was also used for the 2018 Summer Olympics. Carrie recorded the song with Ludacris. The chorus includes the lyrics, “I am invincible, unbreakable / Unstoppable, unshakeable / They knock me down, I get up again / I am the champion, you’re gon’ know my name / You can’t hurt me now, I can’t feel the pain / I was made for this, yeah, I was born to win / I am the champion.”

  • 2 - "I'm A Survivor" - Reba McEntire - 2001

    Used as the theme song for Reba’s CW sitcom, Reba, this song sings of a woman overcoming odds to make it on her own. The chorus includes the lyrics, “The baby girl without a chance / A victim of circumstance / The one who ought a give up, but she’s just / Too hard-headed! / A single mom who works two jobs / Who loves her kids and never stops / With gentle hands and a heart of a fighter / I’m a survivor.”

  • 1 - "Man! I Feel Like A Woman" - Shania Twain - 1997

    “Let’s Go girls!” This is the ultimate anthem to empower women. The chorus includes the lyrics, “Oh, oh, oh, go totally crazy, forget I’m a lady / Men’s shirts, short skirts / Oh, oh, oh, really go wild, yeah, doin’ it in style / Oh, oh, oh, get in the action, feel the attraction / Color my hair, do what I dare / Oh, oh, oh, I wanna be free, yeah, to feel the way I feel / Man, I feel like a woman (hey!).”
