March is Women’s History Month, and it’s no secret that women have had an incredible impact on the music industry. From legendary girl groups to solo artists and the band front-women, every genre has its superstars.

Female voices dominate the charts and fill seats in auditoriums, arenas and theaters. They make a stressful commute more bearable when they’re on the radio. So, before the month is over, take time to salute the ladies of song… especially those who’ve uplifted the gender with their lyrics.
