The acclaimed sister duo Sweethearts of the Rodeo have been talking
about doing a reunion record for years, but Life always seemed to get in
"Life starts to get your attention, and I think we got completely distracted with that," explains Janis Oliver.
"I had kids to raise and bills to pay," adds sister Kristine
Arnold. "Not being in the music business made me humble and made me
realize that it's not the most important thing. But every year on the
day after Thanksgiving, we would do a gig at The Bluebird Café. Every
time we would do that, we would say, 'Why are we not singing together
all the time?' Then we'd go off back into our routines.
"Eventually, I came full circle, back to the person who has really
always been a singer. I realized, 'What am I doing? Why am I not
singing with my sister?' Everything finally came around. Everything
lined up. The timing was right so that we were both in a place where we
could once again focus on doing music."
