The Highwomen set list
Saturday, July 27, 2019
– The debut of The Highwomen on Friday at the Newport Folk Festival featured songs from the quartet's upcoming CD.
The group consists of Brandi Carlile, Maren Morris, Natalie Hemby and Amanda Squires, who played their first concert ever before a rapturous overflow crowd.
The setlist was:
My Name Can't Be Mama
If She Ever Leaves
Don't Call Me
Heaven is a Honky Tonk
Cocktail and a Song
Wheels of Laredo
"Redesigning Women" had previously been released as the first song from the disc. "Crowded Table" dropped at midnight on Thursday. "Wheels of Lardeo" also will appear on Tanya Tucker's album, which Carlile produced, coming out in August.
The band featured guitarist Jason Isbell, who is Squires' husband, and The Twins, aka Phil and Tim Hanseroth, who are long-time fixtures of Carlile's touring band.
The Highwomen also played on Saturday night at Newport Folk Fest as part of the headlining closing set, called The Collaboration, which also featured a guest stint from Dolly Parton along with Sheryl Crow.
