Country-Pop singer/songwriter Caroline Jones has released upbeat Bluegrass track “Being A Woman (Is Like Being The Sun)” as well as an accompanying video, leading up to Mother’s Day next weekend.

The track was written by Jones, and features a group of all-female Bluegrass musicians including Grammy Award-winning artist Alison Brown (Producer/banjo), Rebecca Frazier (guitar/vocals), Kate Lee O’Connor (fiddle/harmony vocal), Mary Meyer (mandolin), and Missy Raines (bass). The song, which was recorded at Compass Sound Studio in Nashville, takes in “age-old truths of womanhood”.

Jones explains:

“Being a Woman (is Like Being the Sun)” is about to the double-edged sword of emotional intelligence and sensitivity that comes with womanhood. There is immense, life-giving power in a woman’s care and understanding of the intricacies of other’s needs. But many challenges accompany that power. As I mature, I am learning how to navigate those challenges, and trying to be intentional about the kind of woman I want to be. How do I care for those I love the most while ensuring that my own needs and desires are met? How do I communicate honestly, without being demanding or controlling, and more importantly listen with an open heart? I really, really hope that this song resonates with women and makes them feel heard and understood. And perhaps inspire men who listen to the song to appreciate and understand the women in their lives more.

I had a vision to record this song with an all-female bluegrass band because I knew they could bring the lyric to life in an authentic way. I am so grateful that Alison Brown resonated with this message, because I cannot think of a better producer to have at the helm for this song. Alison is an inspiration to me and countless other musicians, especially women.”
