Three Talented Sisters, One Unique Sound

"...Ever been misunderstood, misused or misled? Ever knocked on the sky and it fall on your head? Well don't worry 'bout it, don't worry! Ever lost your luggage, your marbles, your house? Or found yourself in bed with Uncle Sam or Mickey Mouse? Ever been accused of murder on Music Row? Or caught in morning traffic when you really gotta go? - oh no!!! Life is funny, life's a mess; sometimes a curse, sometimes a blessing. Don't worry 'bout a thing, don't worry 'bout it! Life is sticky, life can bruise; sometimes you win, sometimes you're losing. No matter what it brings - don't worry 'bout a thing..."

- SHeDAiSY's "Don't Worry 'Bout a Thing"

Hey y'all! I don't know about you, but my work load this semester is already intense! I guess I must admit that summer is officially over, and it is time to crack down on the piles of school work I have accumulated the first couple weeks of school. Obviously the transaction from a carefree-summer to a work-full-semester is always a rude awakening; therefore I found it appropriate to include the humorous, yet comforting, introduction to the newest SHeDAISY hit single "don't Worry 'Bout a Thing." Let's face it, we all are in need of a reminder that sometimes life is a curse and other times life is a blessing. So when you are struggling to get through one of those "bad days" remember you are not alone - everyone is forced to face life's little misfortunes!

Ironically, SHeDAISY also faced a rude awakening this past weekend. Their new single "Don't Worry 'Bout A Thing" dropped out of the Country Top 20 count down Friday afternoon! You can help support this fabulous trio simply by visiting Every little bit helps get this enjoyable "sing-a-long" song back in the races (and what better time to explore this intriguing website - then now??).

Beautiful voices, spectacular harmonies, amazing lyrics... it is time these heart-warming ladies receive the recognition they deserve!

"There are millions of maybes out there... You can't run your life by what ifs."

Sometimes, an unexpected detour can take you to a place that's even better than where you thought you were headed. It's all a matter of learning how to relax and enjoy the ride.

That's a lesson that SHeDAISY's three sisters, Kassidy, Kelsi and Kristyn Osborn, have learned first-hand. The journey of their country music career has been full of struggles and successes. Last year, their hit single "Passenger Seat" raced up the charts faster than any previous SHeDAISY single. This year is full of excitement and success for our favorite Country Music Trio. Their 3rd single, from their new album Sweet Right Here, "Don't Worry 'Bout A Thing" is currently #13 in R&R and #15 in Billboard Monitor. The Video for this song has also been on both CMT's and Gac's Top 20 countdowns. Additionally, they recently have shot a commercial for Amber Alert Systems, which helps find missing children.

SHeDAISY began playing together at an early age. The sisters would often perform for family, friends and their church congregation in their hometown of Magna, Utah. This sister trio rode into the country music world during the wave of female country-pop in the late 1990s. These talented artists are following in the stylistic footsteps of Shania Twain and Faith Hill. SHeDAISY's career got off to a quick start five years ago. The group's first four singles all went Top 10: "Little Good-Byes," "This Woman Needs," "I WillÂ…But" and "Lucky 4 You." The Whole SHeBANG sold nearly 2 million copies, making it one of the most successful debut albums by a country act since the Dixie Chicks. It spent 99 weeks on Billboard magazine's Top Country Albums chart, leading to awards nominations from the Grammys, the Country Music Association, the Academy of Country Music, the Blockbuster Music Awards and the American Music Awards. Furthermore, be sure you look for Kassidy, Kelsi, and Kristyn to be a part of the 2006 Chevy Country Calendar available in September.

When a follow-up album, 2002's Knock on the Sky, failed to match its predecessor's success, the sisters had to re-evaluate everything they'd done. "We were hurt, obviously," says Kassidy. "It was hard. But that's always the risk. Every album's a risk."

SHeDAISY strategically and creatively wrote their new album Sweet Right Here. The album's songs have a fresh, acoustic vibe, with plenty of slide guitar but no keyboards. The trio's trademark vocals are simpler, too. The new album was recorded quickly, in just a few sessions, with a minimum of overdubs and effects. The arrangements are more focused, more direct. As a result, they make a bigger impact. "Everyone went in very laid back and easygoing," says Kelsi. "We thought, 'Let's create. Everyone just get in and do their part and see what we come up with." The group felt like they were starting from scratch with "Passenger Seat" and their new album. "It's almost like being a new artist again," Kelsi says. "It's a rebirth, I guess you could say."

The Osborn sisters say they learned plenty of lessons, from their experiences. All those decisions led them to this point, and, looking in the rear-view mirror of their career, they don't know that they'd have taken any different turns along the way.

"There are millions of maybes out there," says Kassidy. "You can't run your life by what ifs."
