Billboard logo Billboard 3/27/2020 Glenn Rowley

Taylor Swift took over Spotify’s Amplify playlist on Friday (March 27) to share a playlist full of female artists who helped inspire her career.

“At the end of Women’s History Month, I wanted to make a playlist of songs and artists who made music that became the soundtrack to my life for a time, a phase, endless rides on the school bus, getting my license and driving around alone, screaming into a hairbrush and deciding ultimately that I wanted to make music too,” the superstar shared via Instagram Stories alongside the playlist. “I see these women as my faraway mentors, who taught me how music can really make someone’s life easier and more magical.”

She continued: “These female professors guided me melodically, lyrically, spiritually and emotionally without even knowing it. And though I haven’t met most of these women, I will forever be grateful to them.”

Among the 51 female-centric tracks on the playlist include hits by the likes of Jewel, Michelle Branch, Vanessa Carlton and Sheryl Crow, as well as deeper cuts from M2M, Fefe Dobson, Kelly Clarkson and more.

The Dixie Chicks — whom Swift collaborated with on Lover album cut “Soon You’ll Get Better” — also make multiple appearances, with 1998’s “Wide Open Spaces” and 2006’s “Not Ready to Make Nice” and “Easy Silence” all making the cut.
