In 1995 they enrolled at Auburn University to play music, although both were accomplished ballerinas, they quickly learned the basics of guitars and harmonising. Sony got interested and the girls moved to Nashville to record their debut album. Unfortunately the label didn't give it a lot of support and Alison and Catherine were taking day jobs and performing small Acoustic sets wherever they could. In 2005, they got noticed by Universal Music Group and were signed up to record their second album. Both sing vocals while Alison plays guitar and Catherine plays percussion.
