"#LetTheGirlsPlay: Song Suffragettes Cover Miranda Lambert’s ‘Automatic’"

It’s no surprise that Miranda Lambert is a popular artist for the Song Suffragette singer/songwriter performers to cover. Recently the five women took on “Automatic,” Lambert’s Gold certified hit from Platinum. This acoustic version lives up to that gold standard.

Ella Mae Bowen, Lena Stone, Kalie Shorr, Ashley Gearing and Brianna Nelson are the five artists on stage. Shorr begins as she often does, holding down the song’s instrumentation and opening the first verse before giving way to Bowen, who takes the song to the chorus.

It’s 17-year-old Nelson that leaves the crowd oohing. Her vocal inflections at the verse bring some pop and soul sensibility to a straight-forward country song. Stone and Gearing take the next verse and chorus before Shorr picks up the bridge and the group takes the song home.

Every Monday night at the Listening Room Cafe in Nashville, the Song Suffragettes share their own music before closing with one group cover. It’s an hour-long performance that was designed to give females a place to share songs, make new friends and grow as artists, songwriters or performers. Taste of Country is a proud partner in the #LetTheGirlsPlay movement, regularly covering this show as well as spotlighting one artist monthly.
Look for the next monthly #LetTheGirlsPlay artist to be revealed on Sept. 9. -

"THE CATCHER: Newtown singing sensation Brianna Nelson to release debut CD"

The Catcher - Brianna Nelson



Singer-songwriter whose music and vocals quickly relay a maturity beyond her years. Acoustically accompanied songs about life, the american dream, growing up and what's on the mind of any teenager influenced by artists like Train, Norah Jones, Maggie Rogers, Lorde, The Beatles and Ed Sheerin.

Brianna started singing early, and soon she was old enough to audition for The Voice Season 6 (as a 15 year old) and was subsequently cast in the Season 6 - Blind Auditions round. Even though the teams filled up before she got her shot to turn a chair, she decided at that moment that she wanted to pursue a career as a songwriter and performer. After releasing her debut CD, titled 'The Catcher' while still in high school, she now studies Songwriting and Vocal Performance at Berklee School of Music in Boston. 

With experience few artists of her age have enjoyed, Brianna is ferociously writing new material, performing from Boston to New York City to Nashville and is pioneering her own genre, BoHo Pop.
