NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Female musicians in Nashville have long complained about the lack of representation on country radio, but now a collective of female songwriters are singing "Time's Up."

Nearly two dozen women, all belonging to the Song Suffragettes collective, sang on the "Time's Up" song and music video released earlier this month. The group has been playing writer's rounds in Nashville for years to advocate for equal access on country radio.

Kalie Shorr, one of the co-writers of the song, said she was inspired after watching the movement take shape at the Golden Globes and said it's a critical step forward in a conversation that has always been a secret in many industries.
