The Sweethearts of the Rodeo are an American country music duo composed of sisters Janis Oliver and Kristine Arnold.
Growing up in Southern California in the bluegrass and country scene, they moved to Nashville in the early eighties to seek a recording deal.
After winning the Wrangler Country Showdown talent contest in 1985, they signed with Columbia Records scoring ten consecutive top 10 hits including Midnight Girl In a Sunset Town, Since I Found You, and Gotta Get Away. They took country music by storm with their harmony infused blend of bluegrass, folk, and country, receiving consecutive nominations for top duo with the CMA and ACMA.
In the 1990s, they released two albums of bluegrass music on the Sugar Hill label. The sisters continue to enjoy performing their music for the many friends and fans they have met along the way.
