The Tribute to Women in Americana benefit also will aim to tackle the gender imbalance within the genre by highlighting an impressive lineup of female artists covering songwriting legends like Dolly Parton and Carole King. The show is also teaming up with another nonprofit, Change the Conversation, which provides eduation, support, and a community for women in the art world.

Grab your tickets here, or at the door – the event will be taking place May 9 at 8 P.M. Rock on, ladies.
