I don't really have an all-time fav one b/c I grew up on rock/metal, but I do appreciate Benatar, Jett, etc...

Here are a few of my fav mainstream ones...


Aimee Mann is very good...





Plus I love how so many mainstream acts have had women as a part of their bands such as White Zombie, Smashing Pumpkins, A Perfect Circle, etc...



Enjoy this badassery...

Dolly Parton.

She has gained fame for almost being a caricature of herself, but she’s got a voice of angels, has been writing monster hits since she was 9 years old, and is the shrewdest business woman around.

She’s been famous for over 50 years and is still entertaining to record crowds.

And if you haven’t been to Dollywood in East Tennessee, it’s seriously an incredible place.

And in my opinion she absolutely sings “I Will Always Love You”much better than Whitney (and many don’t even know it’s Dolly’s song).

Excellent nomination. One of a kind.

Just think about entering the “Amusement Park” game.....talking Disney, Six Flags, etc....and her little Dollywood, which she has her hands all over every aspect, has risen to be right there with the big boys in terms of quality resort park/vacation.

And putting it right in her hometown backyard, East Tennessee mountains, literally creating thousands of jobs in the area.

It’s truly unheard of......and then that voice.....

Bonnie Raitt is on my list (along with some others already mentioned).

And she hasn’t been around for long, but I’m gonna give a mention to Ellie Goulding. Her voice is quite unique. Too many young female artists are essentially poor imitations of Billie Holliday.

If someone did, i missed it, but I can’t believe no one has mentioned Olivia Newton-John. Her range from country to disco to pop, her timelessness through the decades, oh, and by the way, she’s just HOT! I crushed so hard on her when I was like 9 during the Grease era that my Grandma walked in and caught me making out with the TV once when her image came on.

Sheila E is another one. Love bizarre was one of my faves, and geez, she was so sexy! A lot of crushes in the 80s and 90s mentioned here. Good memories!
