Reigning CMA Musician of the Year, Jenee Fleenor, not only boasts the unprecedented honor of being the first female to win the coveted award, but also holds the title of the first female ever nominated for the award. The Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum’s American Currents: State of the Music exhibit celebrates her ground-breaking achievements by displaying Fleenor’s CMA Award, fiddle and wardrobe memorabilia this spring. On March 13, Fleenor released “Good Ol’ Girls,” the follow-up to her latest single “Fiddle & Steel,” which has already racked up more than 200,000 Spotify streams. The longtime fiddle player for Blake Shelton is back on the road this spring for his 2020 Friends and Heroes 2020 Tour with Bellamy Brothers, John Anderson, Trace Adkins and Lauren Alaina, and following that run, will return to NBC’s “The Voice” where she plays in the hit reality show’s house band. Following her auspicious upbringing as a young fiddle player in Arkansas, Fleenor moved to Nashville in 2001 and became a sought-after studio musician, playing on recent No. 1 hits such as Blake Shelton’s “I’ll Name The Dogs,” Jon Pardi’s: “Dirt On My Boots,” “Head Over Boots,” “Heartache On the Dancefloor” and “Heartache Medication” and Cody Johnson’s “Ain’t Nothin To It.” As a touring musician, Fleenor has performed with Steven Tyler of Aerosmith, Martina McBride, Terri Clark and Don Williams, and as a songwriter, has had songs recorded by artists including Blake Shelton, Reba McEntire, Dolly Parton, Gretchen Wilson, Kathy Mattea and Del McCoury. Fleenor received the Country Music Association’s Touring Musician of the Year Award in 2015, and last year, was honored by Music Row as the Album All Star Winner and also became the first female nominee for the Academy of Country Music’s Specialty Instrument Player of the Year Award.
Reigning CMA Musician of the Year winner and ACM Speciality Instrument Player of the Year nominee, Jenee Fleenor, releases her new single "Good Ol' Girls" today. Rolling Stone Country exclusively premiered a first listen to the track, remarking, "Mining a vein of classic country that wouldn’t feel out of step with George Strait or Patty Loveless, 'Good Ol’ Girls' is propelled by Fleenor’s sizzling, melodic fiddle work and a lively Cajun bounce."
