iHeart Radio comes under fire for poster underrepresenting female country artists

Mic

The group ‘Women of Country’ have questioned an advertisement from iHeart Radio that fails to make reference to any female country artists.
 
Posted on Twitter, the advertisement from @iHeartRadio reads, ‘Country Artist of the Year’, with headshots and the names of Thomas Rhett, Blake Shelton, Sam Hunt, Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean.
 
The advertisement fails to acknowledge any female artists, which is proving controversial at a time when greater attention is being paid to women in entertainment.
 
In response, Women of Country tweeted: “Can you spot what’s wrong with this picture? That’s right @iHeartRadio there are women in #countrymusic including #MarenMorris #CarlyPearce #BrandyClark and more who deserve to be recognised as the Artist of the Year!”
