Receive exclusive updates upcoming events by signing up for our show announcements.

February 8, 2024 Nashville’s only weekly, all-female, singer-songwriter show, Song Suffragettes, will celebrate its 10th anniversary with a one-night-only show on Wednesday, March 27 at Belmont University’s The Fisher Center. The night will honor music icon Wynonna Judd who will participate in an on-stage Q&A along with performing some of her favorite songs from her heralded career as a Grammy, CMA, ACM award winner and an inductee into the Country Music Hall of Fame. Wynonna will also receive Song Suffragettes’ 2024 Yellow Rose of Inspiration Award which is presented annually to a woman who has been a musical inspiration to the Song Suffragettes collective of talented singer-songwriters (past recipients include Ashley McBryde, Kelsea Ballerini, Laura Veltz, Liz Rose and Natale Hemby).

Along with Wynonna, multiple Song Suffragettes alumnae will perform including #1 hitmaker, Tenille Arts, America’s Got Talent finalists Chapel Hart and songwriter superstars Liz Rose and Matraca Berg. With more performers to be announced in coming weeks, the night will also celebrate the ten-year history of Song Suffragettes which since 2014 has showcased over 400 talented women – out of more than 4,000 applicants – with over 60 alumnae going on to receive music publishing deals and 40 landing recording contracts (Lainey Wilson, Carly Pearce, Kelsea Ballerini, Brittney Spencer, Megan Moroney and even pop star Gayle).

“Hitting the ten-year milestone was never something we knew would happen. Song Suffragettes was started simply to provide the best women singer-songwriters a place to be heard and seen with the hope that more opportunities would come from that exposure. After 10 years, we’re humbled by our front row seat watching the evolution of some of the most successful women in music today and are reinvigorated to keep fighting for the underserved female talent that permeates the Nashville music community,” says Songs Suffragettes’ founder Todd Cassetty.

“We’re thrilled to celebrate the amazing talent that has graced our Song Suffragettes stage on March 27th at the beautiful Fisher Center. And to have the iconic Wynonna Judd join us is not just a surprise and an honor, it’s a testament to what we see time and time again in this town: women supporting women.”

Tickets for the Song Suffragettes’ 10th Anniversary Celebration go on sale on Friday, February 9th and can be purchased here.

About Wynonna Judd

With the release of her 1992 self-titled solo debut, Wynonna emerged as a singular force in American music. Beyond the five Grammy Awards, the multi-platinum albums and sold-out tours, the country/soul vocalist built on the Appalachian traditionalism that defined The Judds to create a world where Top 5 dance/club hits were as possible as being inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Having practically grown up as America’s favorite musical daughter, Wynonna matured into a woman who embraced how life is filled with peaks and valleys, great thrills, and heavy disappointment. Those realities informed her 5-times platinum Wynonna and nearing 3-times platinum Tell Me Why, the albums that gave voice to every human being emerging into their own adulthood with joy in their heart.

Beyond the groundbreaking music she and her mother created as The Judds, Wynonna has grown into her once-in-a-generation vocal prowess with an ease that made people clamor to her. “No One Else On Earth,” “Tell Me Why,” “She Is His Only Need,” “Girls With Guitars,” and “I Saw The Light” set the next chapter in motion of for the girl from Ashland, Kentucky who became a global superstar.
