Review

Roberta Lea’s Too Much of a Woman, out today, is one of the best albums of the year. Her debut full-length album makes an emphatic artistic statement: she stakes her claim to the wide-open spaces of country music and places herself within multiple intersecting musical traditions. It’s also a stunning piece of music, filled with memorable songs and linked by a loose but clear concept in which Lea tells the story of a woman who learns to embrace and celebrate her wholeness in spite of those (including herself) who would try to convince her otherwise.

Gay Ole Opry

Why queer country music? Because sometimes you love a culture that doesn’t love you back. And when everyone came to the first Gay Ole Opry in April of 2011 in all their country finery, we knew we weren’t alone. We do it because we love the music and want to build a community to support queer country musicians.
