It was quite a time to be in DC this week. We’ve spent a couple of years developing projects that have personal meaning and have been humbled by the reception, energy, creativity and partnership we’ve received from so many extraordinary leaders. It was a whirlwind of good strategic conversation, education and inspiration. We started our day on Capitol Hill in @speakerpelosi office and ended it in Secretary Madeleine Albright’s sitting room :) We thank all of the wonderful women we met with this week and for the warm embrace. Looking forward to the year ahead and sharing more soon. 🇺🇸
“You’re only given a little spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it” - Robin Williams. He would have been 68 today. I worked with Robin, I saw his process. I stood at the wings of the stage and saw the quiet, sweet man I was just talking to, transform into the performer we all needed him to be as he took those first steps toward the audience. What happened next was a always a force of nature unto itself. Watching him perform live was to stand inside the hurricane of his mind,his “spark of madness”. Unique voices and astonishing talent often come from special souls with emotional depth and challenges we cannot see on the surface. Over the next year, my company will explore the mental health crisis in America alongside esteemed individuals, organizations and institutions that have the ability to change the world. #happybirthday #robinwilliams
I don’t know what my own life would be like or what our culture would be... without the love, friendship, humor, heart and uniquely compassionate strength of the #lgbtq community. The world is a better place because of these very special human hearts. #love #pride #andsomuchmore
Two words. Kevin Kay. He put it all on the line for this show and he and @kac_man and @bslater9 navigated a troubled time in Hollywood to protect and deliver it. Congrats on these ratings and the Season 3 pick up my friends! #yellowstone

What she said 🙌🏻👢! Repost @brandicarlile Had such an incredible time @lorettalynnofficial’s birthday last night. Let there be no question - women in country music love and support each other 💪🏼 Happy Birthday Loretta 🎂🥳 @thehighwomen @pistolannies @mirandalambert @ashleymonroemusic @guitarleena @marenmorris @amandapearlshires @wruckestrike @thetanyatucker 📸 @alyssegafkjen
So far, this is a year of reflection on how I spend my time and how important it is to stand for something in your work. I was thrilled to get a call from Loretta Lynn and her daughter Patsy, to produce and direct a special concert tribute event for this remarkable, groundbreaking woman. Still the most awarded woman in the history of country music and first female country artist to receive the Kennedy Center Honor. In recent years, she was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom from Barack Obama. My grandfather loved Loretta and held her up as an example of a woman determined to make something herself against impossible odds. It’s entirely our honor to be a part of an All Star Celebration this weekend in Nashville with @spaceykacey @garthbrooks @trishayearwood @littlebigtown @keithurban @mirandalambert @brandicarlile @officialjackwhitelive @dariusrucker @officialalanjackson @martinamcbride and more. #countrymusic royalty fit for the Queen.

Need more of these days in my life. Here’s to the girls that scoop you up and make you slow down. Only Beth McCarthy can boss me around like that :) 🙏🏻🙌🏼🌞
On the road again with this stunner. She always takes me along when she makes TV Shows. Those legs 🐶
Happy Birthday to this spectacular human friend.
This Crew! The magic factory! There is no feeling in the world like watching so many talented people in action in pursuit of one big dream. The imaginations, skill, experience and passion at work here was inspiring and humbling to see. Feeling fortunate and very thankful to these fine folks. The family grows every year and we’re incredibly proud. Congrats Team #GOSHORTIES TONIGHT @nickelodeon @lipsyncbattle #lsbshorties #lsbs
YES @CMT ! Long overdue and so well done! #countrymusic get’s real about supporting women in the business. 🙌🏻 So many people “talking” about the issues of inequality... this is an example of people taking action in a positive, celebratory and powerful way.
Have I mentioned that you should follow my cousin George on @Spotify 🇬🇧 @gw_harrison 🙌🏻
This is our Director @mr_ryanpolito He likes talking on the phone and bubble baths. 💕
Humbled and indebted to those who have come before to make the opportunity I enjoy possible. Every woman I know does battle everyday in hopes of softening the ground for the next generation of girls, who will be seeking safe passage as they work to realize their potential and build a limitless path for themselves. They deserve a more enlightened and equal experience and to feel supported and celebrated as they do so. It won’t happen overnight because we are not a trend. Girls we see you, we know that you are ready to move progress forward as a better, faster stronger version of us. You’re prepared for what you’ll hear, we all heard it and we broke though anyway. Let detractors talk to themselves while you stay focused on achieving and being inspired. Let them use those words that are so easy to use about women and embody them in the best ways. Let them say that you are demanding when trying to stand for something. Let them say you’re tough when you have no choice. Let them say that you’re combative when you defend yourself and your point of view. Let them say that you are exacting when you are decisive. Let them say you are disruptive when you will not settle. Let them say you are difficult when you don’t agree with them. Let them say you are loud when you speak up for not being heard. Let them talk about your body, your skin color, your sexuality and anything else they need to say to detract from your actual power, because we’re a generation of women and girls who are prepared for the words and are taking them back. We’re going to stand for something anyway and be on the right side of history. Demand equal rights and equal pay. Be Tough on those who are not on your side. Be Combative when fighting the good fight and defending yourself. Be Exacting in your goals for yourself and your vision. Disrupt any system that does not support you. Be Difficult to ignore. Be Loud about your beliefs and being heard. All of the above is womanly and feminine and honorable and strong. Don’t ever let anyone make you feel otherwise. You can do all with grace, good humor and compassion. We know that you will. We love you and we got you.
Reunited and it feels go good 🐾🎼 Lola and her west coast bestie 🐶
