Keb’ Mo’ and Rosanne Cash, both 4-time GRAMMY award-winners, known for their activism and philanthropic work, have teamed up to release, “Put A Woman In Charge;” an upbeat anthem with a timely message about female empowerment and embracing women in leadership roles.
Written by Keb’ Mo’, John Lewis Parker (“Hard Habit To Break,” “Can’t We Fall In Love Again”), and Beth Nielsen Chapman (“This Kiss,” “Happy Girl”), “Put A Woman In Charge” is now available through all digital retailers, including Apple Music, Amazon, Spotify, and more.
Keb’ Mo’ commented about the track:
Put A Woman In Charge’ is about trying something else. There have been a lot of great achievements made by men or by the masculine, but maybe, just maybe, we’ve gotten too comfortable with the imbalance of men in power and have fallen short by not listening and embracing what women have to offer when they lead. I think the song should be heard and conversations need to be had. It’s about empowering each and every one of us to contribute, and to be brave to step forward and speak up.
Keb’ Mo’ picked up three Blues Awards by the Blues Foundation. TajMo, Keb’s collaboration with Taj Mahal earned Album of the Year and Best Contemporary Blues Album. Keb’ Mo’ was also named Best Contemporary Blues Male Artist.
Congrats to Taj Mahal for winning Best Acoustic Artist and B.B. King Entertainer of the year!
