Earlier this month, it was officially revealed that Brandi Carlile, Natalie Hemby, Maren Morris, and Amanda Shires have formed a new country supergroup called The Highwomen. Last weekend, the four-piece played their debut concert at the Newport Folk Festival, and now the band has made their television debut with an appearance on The Tonight Show yesterday. Accompanied by a backing band, the four singers lined up at the front of the stage and took turns delivering the lyrics of midtempo country ballad “Redesigning Women.” In a web-exclusive video, the group also performed the smoldering “Crowded Table.”
While at the Newport Folk Festival this weekend, the already-stacked Highwomen lineup was joined by a special guest: country legend Dolly Parton. The group’s upcoming self-titled album also features contributions from big names like Sheryl Crow, Jason Isbell, Miranda Lambert, and Ray LaMontagne.
Carlile previously said of the group, “Anyone can be a Highwoman. It’s about banding together, abandoning as much ego as humanly possible, holding one another up and amplifying other women every chance we get. Shoulder to shoulder. One push, one love.”
