Country Now Debuts Weekly DIY Series With

CMT Next Women Of Country Artist Ruthie Collins

Curb Records’ Ruthie Collins, one of a select group of female artists featured in CMT’s Next Women of Country initiative, which recognizes women making an indelible impact on country music, debuts her all-original lifestyle series Pinterest “Pass or Fail” today on Country Now. The six episode series will air weekly on Thursdays, and will run through February 25th.

Whether rating a quinoa chicken recipe or creating a mason jar tiki torch, each 3-minute episode highlights an accessible Pinterest post, which as Collins describes should “be easy to attempt and come at little cost.”  Vibrant and fun loving, Collins’ personality and passion for the classic country lifestyle shines through in each episode.  For a preview go to and to see Pinterest “Pass or Fail” episode one “The Flower Crown” go to

“I can get lost for hours searching for projects on Pinterest, but sometimes they can seem a little daunting,” said Collins.  “I thought it would be fun to try some of them and to share them with people who may be looking for their next DIY project to tackle.  For me, Pinterest is a creative playground full of great ideas – an amazing place to get inspiration and to share what inspires you.”

Collins is one of Music City’s most respected and innovative young talents.

Collins will be appearing at the Roots and Blues Festival in Lancaster, Pennsylvania later this winter and will make her first-ever performance at the prestigious Stagecoach Festival in Indio, California in May. For more information about Ruthie Collins, please visit:
