All proceeds from the tune “The Highway” will fund a scholarship.
The all-female country-rock-pop band the Highway Women make music — and empowerment. A string of singles — “Stand Up and Fight,” “God Made Me Right,” “Shake the Dust,” and the brand-new “The Highway” — spread their message of female empowerment in the music industry and beyond.
The new tune is the theme song for the group’s action-based initiative Be a Highway Woman, which provides free conferences and resources for women in the music industry. All proceeds from the song will go toward funding a scholarship.
C&I is premiering “The Highway” a day before its October 30th release, and we talked to the gals about the song.
“This is probably our most important release to date,” says Kristen Kae. “This is the theme song of our new female support movement we started called Be a Highway Woman. It’s free and all-inclusive for any woman to join who is involved in the music industry as an artist or even behind the scenes.”
“I loved recording ‘The Highway,’ says Bailey James. “We brought in four female artists from our Be a Highway Woman program to be featured. It was so much fun being in the studio and creating with all of these ladies.”
“I am so happy we have a platform to create a giving experience,” says Drew Haley. “We are donating all of the proceeds of this song to our scholarship program, which is going to go to women who are entering college, vocational programs, engineering schools with a focus on music.”
“Being new to this group, what a first-time experience recording with the Highway Women and all of the Be a Highway Women artists,” says Jess Paige. “I love this song. It really represents what it is to be an indie artist trying to find a place in music.”
