If all of the drama over Tuesday night’s (July 30) finale of The Bachelorette didn’t intellectually and emotionally exhaust you, you might have managed to stay up late enough to catch some realer-than-reality television.
It happened when country’s latest supergroup The Highwomen made their TV debut on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and their performance was 100 percent drama free. The supreme collective of Brandi Carlile, Natalie Hemby, Maren Morris and Amanda Shires took the Fallon stage for “Redesigning Women” and “Crowded Table.”
“Anyone can be a Highwoman. It’s about banding together, abandoning as much ego as humanly possible, holding one another up and amplifying other women every chance we get,” Carlile says of the inclusive nature of the group. “Shoulder to shoulder. One push, one love.”
But back to that Bach drama. The gist of the finale is that when this season’s bachelorette Hannah Brown made her choice, she chose Mr. Wrong. Because as soon as she directed Jed Wyatt to take a knee and put a ring on it, it was revealed that he’d had some lovin’ on the side.
No word yet on what will become of Brown and/or Wyatt, but after scrolling deep into Wyatt’s Insta, he is clearly a Dan + Shay superfan and wants to be the Next Big Country Singer in a Backwards Ball Cap.
The Highwomen’s self-titled debut album will be released September 6.
