“Women Want to Hear Women With Elaina” Season 1 Review

I can’t believe Season 1 of Women Want to Hear Women is winding down.

Since launching in June, we have completed 23 amazing episodes featuring some of the genre’s biggest names, rising stars and up-and-comers. Before we close Season 1 next week with a sit-down interview with Cam—I’m so excited—I thought it would be fun to reflect on some of this season’s episodes, so I brought in my partner in crime, Jim Casey, editor in chief of Nash Country Daily, who helped me launch the podcast six months ago.

I can’t even begin to thank all of my guests and the people behind the scenes who have made this podcast become a reality. But I will try. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

If you’ve missed an episode or you’re a new listener, check out the links below to every episode from Season 1, from Kacey Musgraves and Carrie Underwood to Maren Morris and Danielle Bradbery . . . and everyone in between.

Be sure to tune in next week for Cam before we launch Season 2 in January, with a new lineup of guests you won’t believe.

Podcast Participants:

  • Elaina Smith, host of Women Want to Hear Women
  • Jim Casey, editor in chief of Nash Country Daily
