The Highwomen – The Tonight Show

It’s been quite an exciting week for country music’s new supergroup The Highwomen, comprised of Brandi Carlile, Maren Morris, Amanda Shires and Natalie Hemby.

Over the weekend, they had the opportunity to share the stage with the legendary Dolly Parton, and on Tuesday night (July 30), the foursome made their television debut on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

Performing their debut single, “Redesigning Women,” The Highwomen put their impressive harmonies on display throughout the song, which celebrates the modern working woman.

“Redesigning women / Runnin’ the world while we’re cleanin’ up the kitchen / Makin’ bank, shakin’ hands, drivin’ 80 / Tryin’ to get home just to feed the babies / Skippin’ the bread for the butter / Changin’ our minds like we change our hair color / Yeah, ever since the beginning, we’ve been redesigning women,” they sang.

Check out their performance in the video above.

The Highwomen’s band name was partially inspired by The Highwaymen, a country supergroup formed in 1985 that was comprised of Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings and Kris Kristofferson.

“Anyone can be a Highwoman,” Carlile previously shared in a release. “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.”

“Redesigning Women” is the lead release from The Highwomen’s eponymous 12-track album, which is slated for release September 6. Fans can pre-order the album now.
