“As women, we have to always remember to listen to our instincts and go with our guts,” Karen says. “I think too often girls feel like they have to make concessions or change who they are, or what their music says, to make it in this industry.”

The “Girl Crush” singer says instead of changing who they are, women should feel encouraged to embrace who they are.

“We need to nurture these women to write honest songs, to write from their hearts, and not to pander,” Karen adds. “Let’s give them some room to do what they do.”

Little Big Town continue their Ryman auditorium residency this weekend (5/19 and 5/20) in Nashville.
