The Highwomen—the new country supergroup comprising Brandi Carlile, Natalie Hemby, Maren Morris and Amanda Shires—dropped their debut single “Redesigning Women” last Friday.
The group adapted their name from The Highwaymen, the all-male group from a previous country generation that was composed of Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Kris Kristofferson and Willie Nelson.
Their debut track “Redesigning Women” torches the outdated gender roles foisted on women, instead reflecting in its lyrics a life that “most women are living today,” Hemby explained in a press release. “We juggle so much in 24 hours and I wanted to write a song that reflected the goodness, the madness and the hilarity of it all.”
In the music video, the quartet don Fire & Rescue gear and build an impressive bonfire from ironing boards, lace, high-heeled shoes and household appliances. Their countryside crew quickly grows with the addition of Raelynn, Cassadee Pope, Lauren Alaina, Natalie Stavall and several other female country musicians.
The Highwomen’s debut eponymous album will be released on September 6. Watch the “Redesigning Women” music video now:
