Linda Martell, pionera de la música country, galardonada con el premio CMT Equal Play

Martell received the CMT Equal Play Award at Wednesday night’s show.

Mickey Guyton, quien este año se convirtió en la primera mujer negra solista nominada a un premio Grammy country, presentó el honor a Martell, while Black artists including Darius Rucker, Rissi Palmer and Rhiannon Giddens congratulated the legend in a video package dedicated to her career.

Martell had even opened up in the piece about how she received vile treatment from venue and club owners and promoters and recalled struggling to get through performances during her time performing on the country music circuit due to the treatment she often received – but relished in the memory of receiving three standing ovations for her showing at the Opry.
