One morning in March, Sheryl Crow was tuned to a country radio station in Nashville while driving her kids to school. Listening to dudes singing about pickup trucks, moonshine, and girls in their Daisy Dukes, Crow took to Twitter to vent. "Will somebody please play a woman on the radio?" she pleaded. "Any woman. It doesn't have to be me but if I hear one more bro country song I'm gonna vomit!" Sorry, Sheryl. The Bro Country onslaught hasn't abated yet - though there are signs of a backlash, led by the teenage female duo Maddie & Tae. And this summer, Bro Country is coming to the Philadelphia area in a big, Bro-dacious way. Thursday night, Blake Shelton, Bro-friendly star of the TV music reality show The Voice , will play a free concert on the beach in Atlantic City for 60,000 toes-in-the-sand concertgoers.
