Fox411: Women Belong On Country Radio

Laura Bell Bundy is releasing her first studio album in five years on June 9, and the Broadway veteran and television actress told FOX411 Country she’s excited about her return to country music. Bundy also shared her thoughts on radio consultant Keith Hill’s controversial comments to take women off of country radio.

Bundy: That guy is not gonna get laid. That is my official word [laughs]. I do agree with that there should be more women. I’m the type of person who likes to hear women.

Let’s look at the careers of them.
