Not only are Kalie Shorr and Savannah Keyes two of the most prominent “ones to watch” on the country music scene today, they’re also taking on a brand new role at Radio Disney Country – one of radio’s biggest supporters of women in country music.
The pair have been tapped to host “Let The Girls Play,” a new daily feature on Radio Disney Country that highlights the latest news and songs from country music’s top ladies and rising stars, who aren’t otherwise supported heavily on a radio format. “Let the Girls Play” premiered yesterday on Radio Disney Country. You can listen to Radio Disney Country on the Radio Disney App, iHeartRadio App, KRDC FM/AM – Los Angeles, TuneIn, the Radio Disney Country ‘Spotlight’ on Radio Disney and SiriusXM, Apple Music and Spotify playlists.
Unlike a more traditional radio show, “Let The Girls Play” will be a series of features that air throughout the day, every day on Radio Disney Country.
“We are excited to launch ‘Let The Girls Play,’ a daily feature spotlighting talented women in country music talking about other talented women. In line with today’s millennial and Gen Z listening habits, these engaging features will air multiple times daily. Female voices are integral to Radio Disney Country, and we are thrilled to be working with two of our favorites – Kalie Shorr and Savannah Keyes.” – Phil Guerini, vice president, Music Strategy, Disney Channels Worldwide and general manager, Radio Disney Network
Says Shorr, “From the very beginning, Radio Disney Country has been a massive champion of women in country music. When programming, they never factor in gender – only the integrity of the songs and artists themselves. This show is another example of their unwavering support, and Savannah and I are so lucky to call ourselves Radio Disney Country artists – and now hosts, too.”
“I am so excited to be bringing ‘Let The Girls Play’ to Radio Disney Country! Empowering women, highlighting up-and-coming artists that I’m lucky enough to have played with at Song Suffragettes, and covering all things country music is something I am so passionate about, and the fact that I get to do it with my best friend makes the experience even sweeter. I still can’t believe that this is happening!” – Savannah Keyes
Kalie Shorr just wrapped headlining the 2018 “Road To The CMA Awards” Tour, visiting Walmart stores across the U.S. to promote the 52nd annual CMA Awards. Savannah Keyes was recently a contestant on the first season of USA Network’s new series “Real Country,” where she competed on panelist Jake Owen’s team. Shorr and Keyes have performed together during Nashville’s only all-female singer-songwriter round, Song Suffragettes.
