Pure crap by 4 unknowns
The original highwaymen were legends of their time (and now) coming together to make legendary music, these are four unknown want to be women copying the greatest of all time for a buck!! I'll pass !!
This album is a half-hearted attempt at capitalizing on an original concept that has been fortified many years ago with the stellar efforts of "The Highwaymen". What we get here is a group of aspiring women who are not in any way equal to the level of seniority that of what Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings and Kris Kristofferson bring to the table. If we had the likes of Reba McEntire, Shania Twain, Carrie Underwood and Pam Tillis (not to mention Dolly Parton) we might be able to respect what they're giving us with this self-titled release, but these ladies are not on par with the namesake. Even the name "The Highwaywomen" would have been a better choice than "The Highwomen". What were they thinking?
Ignore the trolls
Best album in a LONG time.
I really wanted to like this.
Individually each of these artists carved their own paths musically. I have a great deal of respect for them all. But this album is a bit of a mess. The concept is unnecessary and reaching for a comparison to the greatest male artists of that generation was a mistake, no matter the intention. The video for Redesigning Women left me disappointed. No critic can really say this as he/she will be butchered because we all want more women to succeed on country radio and streaming formats. If this supergroup continues to put out music, I will be rooting for them! Please, be original and spend more time getting it right next time.
Absolutely an award winning album! Gave me goosebumps from start to finish. Past and future generations thank you, Ladies. Your passion and talents are forever recognized.
I like this album. Their voices work well together. Lovely harmonies. I’m over here loling at all the 1-star reviews from people who seem to really want a woman to get in the kitchen and make them a sandwich.

I don’t like the production but I really do like the songs, live
Just don’t like it
The idea is great but this is horrible. Maybe if it were different artists....
Great album! Fun. Serious. Thoughtul. Light-hearted. All couched in excellent music, craft and personality
Dave Cobb to the rescue

Although these 4 musicians are not considered elite in Country Music by any stretch, they do have talent, and apparently, savvy to spare when it comes to working the levers of the hype machine. Despite (with the exception of Ms Morris) very modest commercial success they managed to get this project billed as a "Country Super Group" ... that's a bit presumptuous for musicians at this level..
Patty Loveless, Carrie Underwood, Lee Ann Womack, Kelsea Ballerini and Shania Twain... that would be an actual "Super Group"
For all you Country Music purists out there, these songs are definitely solid Country sounding. There's just nothing remarkable here. Even the name "Highwomen" is rather weak word play.
Standing ovation for Dave Cobb producing doing the best anyone could hope for.
