40 Solo Males, 5 Solo Females Have a Single on This Week’s Billboard Country Airplay Chart: 10 Years Ago, There Were a Lot More Ladies

40 Solo Males, 5 Solo Females Have a Single on This Week’s Billboard Country Airplay Chart: 10 Years Ago, There Were a Lot More Ladies

The numbers don’t lie, and from the looks of ’em, female solo artists don’t have a lot to celebrate this week.

In the Top 60 spots on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart, only five solo female artists—Carly Pearce, Maren Morris, Miranda Lambert, Kelsea Ballerini and Brooke Eden—are represented, while 40 solo male artists made the cut. The remaining 15 spots are occupied by seven male duos, six male groups and two male/female groups. Three female artists—Maren Morris, Carrie Underwood and Lauren Alaina—are featured on songs by solo male artists.

The highest charting solo female artist this week is Carly Pearce, whose “Every Little Thing” is No. 24.

As a reference, last year at this time (June 25, 2016), seven solo female artists—Carrie Underwood, Kelsea Ballerini, Jennifer Nettles, Cam, Brandy Clark, Clare Dunn and Cassadee Pope—had singles in the Top 60 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart, as well as one female duo, Maddie & Tae.

If you want to go back 10 years ago to June 30, 2007, 13 solo females artists had singles in the Top 60, including Taylor Swift, Kellie Pickler, Reba McEntire, Martina McBride, Terri Clark, Miranda Lambert, Faith Hill, Gretchen Wilson, Carrie Underwood, Sarah Buxton, LeAnn Rimes, Sarah Johns and Sara Evans. In addition, Sugarland, Little Big Town and The Wreckers had songs on the chart. Faith Hill was represented again on “I Need You,” a duet with Tim McGraw.

Here’s the complete breakdown from this week.
