Springdale Native Scores CMA Musician of the Year
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 the multitalented singer/songwriter has already racked up more than 200,000 Spotify streams with her latest single, “Fiddle & Steel.” This spring, Jenee will release “Good Ol’ Girls,” her follow-up to her recent streaming smash.
Springdale, Arkansas’ Jenee Fleenor has become the first woman to win the CMA Musician of the Year award and she is also the first woman to receive the nomination for that award as well as the ACM’s Specialty Instrument Player of the Year (2019 and 2020). The Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum’s American Currents: State of the Music exhibit celebrates her groundbreaking achievements.
The longtime fiddle player for Blake Shelton and NBC’s “The Voice” has also toured with Steven Tyler and had her songs recorded by Shelton, Reba McEntire and Dolly Parton.
Jenee just released “Good Ol’ Girls,” which Rolling Stone described as, “The realization of a dream she had growing up as a young fiddle player in Arkansas and a story she retells in the autobiographical new song.”
