Song Suffragettes Conclude August Celebration Of 19th Amendment’s Centennial Anniversary

Song Suffragettes recently teamed with the Women’s Suffrage Centennial Commission for four live shows in August, titled Live From Nashville: Song Suffragettes. Special guests for the shows included Lindsay Ell, Maddie & Tae, Ashley McBryde and Runaway June. They joined a lineup that included Kalie Shorr, Erin Grand, Chloe Gilligan and Jenna Paulette along with Julie Williams, Carter Faith, Raquel Cole, Bree Doster, Stevie Woodward, Ava Suppelsa, Trannie Anderson, Mignon, Emily Landis, Mia Mantia, Kasey Tyndall, Mia Morris and bonus special guest Caylee Hammack.

The four shows were livestreamed from the Song Suffragettes’ home stage at The Listening Room Café with “Votes For Women” buttons provided to all patrons courtesy of the WSCC. The Aug. 17 show welcomed Melanie Curtis and Melissa Lowe from the all-female Highlight Pro Skydiving Team who presented Song Suffragettes with a “Votes for Women” flag the day before they and their team made a historic skydive into Nashville’s Centennial Park.

Song Suffragettes also took part in The Hermitage Hotel’s commemoration of the 19th Amendment. Shorr, Williams, Grand and Caroline Marquard performed three songs including a classic suffrage protest song titled “Let Us All Speak Our Minds.” A key destination for both pro- and anti-suffragists during the final battle in Tennessee to secure the 19th Amendment’s ratification, The Hermitage Hotel event featured dignitaries and speakers who recounted the story of how Tennessee was the final state needed to ratify the 19th Amendment.

Song Suffragettes also facilitated two U.S. National Anthem performances by Stoney Creek Records’ Lindsay Ell before Major League Baseball games on two historic dates. The first performance opened the Baltimore Orioles game on Aug. 18, the day Tennessee ratified the 19th Amendment in 1920. The second performance happened on Aug. 26 before the Washington Nationals game on the day the 19th Amendment was officially certified into the U.S. Constitution 100 years ago.
