A couple of days ago Sara Hickman’s mom reached out to me on Facebook. We were neighbors when we were kids in Houston. Sara has recorded like 20 albums since the 1990s (I checked out her website www.sarahickman.com). I still just remember her as a kid across the street we played with sometimes. But it got me to thinking about who my favorite female vocalists are. Sara didn’t make this list, but she might once I have a chance to listen to more of her music. Here is who did make the list â€“ I’ve got my top ten, and then half a dozen or more alternates.
Margo Timmins (Cowboy Junkies)
Christine McVie (Fleetwood Mac)
Chrissie Hynde (The Pretenders)
Kate Pearson (The B-52’s)
Vickie Thorn (The Waifs)
Maria McKee (Lone Justice)
