Miranda Lambert calls bullshit. Oh, and she's pretty pissed, too.

It all started thanks to statements country radio executive Keith Hill made in the publication Country Aircheck.

"If you want to make ratings in Country radio, take females out," he said. "If you play more than 15 percent female on [country] radio, your rating will go down."

This did not sit well with many country musicians and fans. Especially Miranda, who took to Twitter to call out his comments and say they're the "biggest bunch of BULLS*** I have ever heard."

"I am gonna do everything in my power to support and promote female singer/songwriters in country music. Always," she added.


Miranda is not the only country musician to call this guy out. Singer Martina McBride took to Facebook, writing, "Wow.....just wow. Just read this from a major country radio publication. How do you feel about this statement? I especially want to hear from the females"

In the Country Aircheck interview, Keith went on to call female country artists the "tomatoes" in the country music salad.

"Trust me, I play great female records and we've got some right now; they're just not the lettuce in our salad," he said. "The lettuce is Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton, Keith Urban and artists like that. The tomatoes of our salad are the females."

He might want to look up Miranda's recent country music awards winning streak. And maybe her kickass "Gunpowder and Lead" music video, too...just sayin'.
