article imageOp-Ed: Top 10 female country music videos of 2013

By Markos Papadatos     Dec 26, 2013 in Entertainment
2013 was a great year for female country artists and their music videos. Here are the videos that made my Top 10 list of of the year.
At. No. 10, was Miranda Lambert's "All Kinds of Kinds." I love the song itself and the music video featured live footage of the reigning Country Music Association (CMA) "Female Vocalist of the Year" winner. I was really shocked this song didn't fare better on the Billboard Hot Country Airplay charts, since it is one of my best Miranda Lambert tunes that I have heard in a while.
"All Kinds of Kinds" contains one of my favorite lyrics of hers: "When I stood up in geometry and everybody stared at me and I tossed my test into the trash."
At. No. 9 was Long Island country singer Lisa Matassa's "I Won't Ask." It is up-tempo, catchy and Matassa showcases her tremendous vocal range. Long Island country music has found its queen. Hail Lisa Matassa.
At No. 8 was Carrie Underwood's "See You Again." As always, Underwood shows off her powerful pipes and this moving tune has an optimistic message to it.
At No. 7 was up-and-coming country singer Elizabeth Lyons' "Everything Tonight. Her vocals are melodic and soothing and the music video is a breath of fresh air. It's like a modern-day country music fairytale. Director Mason Dixon filmed a creative video for this young, talented songstress.
At No. 6 was Cassadee Pope's "Wasting All These Tears." Pope won the third season of The Voice, and in her latest video, she displays vocals as powerful and captivating as those of Avril Lavigne in the pop-rock world.
At No. 5 was Danielle Bradbery's "The Heart of Dixie." A former champ of The Voice, Bradbery has done a superb job on her music video for "The Heart of Dixie," and she looks stunning. At only 17, I firmly believe that she is the next big country music superstar.
At No. 4 was Jana Kramer's "Whiskey." I felt that this video was truly underrated this year and the song should have fared better on the charts. Kramer showcased a wide spectrum of emotions and her acting was impeccable in the video. Many viewers and listeners can relate to "Whiskey."
At No. 3 was Kacey Musgraves' "Merry Go 'Round." Musgraves was one of the genre's greatest new artists this year, and rightfully so. This song was autobiographical and she co-directed the video for this tune.
At No. 2 was Ashley Monroe's "Like A Rose." Her song is autobiographical and its vibrant music video paints a picture in the minds of her viewers. Blessed with mellifluous vocals, Monroe is the Lee Ann Womack of our generation.
When all is said and done, the No. 1 female country video of 2013 goes to Canadian country singer Michelle Wright's "Strong." She co-wrote such an inspirational song, which featured an even more impressive music video that will move country listeners to tears. Michelle Wright is on a roll. She recently topped my list for "Best Female Country Albums" released in 2013, and now she reigns supreme in the music video category. Her music video for "Strong" deserves a standing ovation.
