Sweethearts of the Rodeo Still Performing

Janis Gill, once married to Vince Gill and half of the country duo Sweethearts of the Rodeo, is turning 60 today (Saturday, March 1). There was a time, in the late 80’s, you would turn on the radio and more than likely there would be Sweethearts of the Rodeo song playing.

The Sweethearts are Sisters Janis Gill and Kristine Arnold (the Oliver sisters) who had been kicking around country music for 20 years before they had ‘overnight success’ in 1986. Their first two albums had seven consecutive top 10 hits, like Midnight Girl/Sunset Town, Chains of Gold and Blue to the Bone.

Success took its toll though as the band almost broke up, but being sisters they were able to work things out and stay together. After four years with Columbia Records the sisters went to a new label, Sugar Hill Records, and had more freedom to do their kind of music coming out with the albums ‘Rodeo Waltz’ and ‘Beautiful Lies’.

The Sweethearts of the Rodeo still tour adding bluegrass and folk festivals to their schedule working with a small acoustic band and doing some duo dates.
