Wow, can you believe it's already Friday again? Well it is so welcome to another edition of our weekly introduction to an artist you should be listening to. Welcome to #FeaturedFriday.
This week we have the sassy and talented Rankin Twins. Now I have to disclose that this week I'm poaching directly from CMchatlive.com who has been featuring the pair on a pretty regular basis for a while now. The pair's Rankin Road Rules are a hoot and I've been happily following their antics for weeks.
But who are The Rankin Twins? Well they are Amy and April Rankin, or “Number 1” and “Number 2” as they sometimes jokingly call themselves. The pair grew up in Texas and then went away to college. After graduating and trying their hand at regular jobs, they decided to pursue their first passion … music. Unfortunately, they soon came to their first huge hurdle when Amy ended up having brain surgery to remove a tumor.
“I think the obstacles we've overcome help us to be able to channel our experiences, love, doubts and fears into our music. We make an attitude choice daily to make sure we stay positive,” Amy says.
It's definitely that positive attitude that shines through in their music. The gals are goofy, funny, and a pair I could definitely see myself hanging out with. When I was putting together the bits and pieces for this article, the ladies were each working on the questions I had sent them without realizing it. We had a good laugh when they told me they were sitting in the same airport but didn't realize they were both working on the same set of questions for me.
Aside from the fun of watching and listening to a pair of bubbly blondes, their music is pretty damn good too, as you can see in the video below for Jezebel. The pair have spent quite a bit of time on the Texas music charts, and hopefully we'll get the chance to see them on the other charts such as Billboard in the near future.
If you'd like to find out more about Amy and April, you can find them on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, their website, and of course on CMchatlive.
