There is at least one woman in everyone’s life. She might be your mother, sister, daughter, wife, aunt, cousin, friend, boss or mentor. She might be someone who landed your life just when you needed her. Or she might be someone who left your life way too soon.
But no matter who she is, she’s our shero today. Because it’s International Women’s Day and social media is packed with messages of love and support from both male and female country stars.
Reba McEntire, whether she meant to do so or not, kicked things off when she shared a behind-the-scenes look at the making of her”Tammy Wynette Kind Of Pain.” She says it’s the kind of stone-cold country she was determined to make this time around.
Go behind the scenes with Reba recording "Tammy Wynette Kind Of Pain" from her new album STRONGER THAN THE TRUTH, available April 5. Listen to "Tammy Wynette Kind Of Pain" and pre-order the album here now: https://t.co/wdEJI10dTu pic.twitter.com/3f4z4LaIGU

Brandy Clark, one of the song’s co-writers, shared that post as well. Along with her feelings on the emotions of the day. “It’s fitting that on #InternationalWomensDay one of my idols @reba would be singing a song I’m a co-writer on about one of my other idols, Tammy Wynette. These two women have knocked down a lot of doors for women in music,” she wrote.
