The man who just took over our recent Sexiest Male Voices of Country Music poll, Trace Adkins, is out on tour this Summer/Fall, visiting several areas of North America. We are incredibly excited to share that Jill and Kate, one of #CMchat’s favorite duos, has been hitting the stage with the man whose voice could make you melt.
Jill and Kate were invited by Adkins to join his touring band as background vocalists, embracing their individual styles and offering them the ability to share their artistry with Adkins and his fans. “Having the girls on the road has really given a new kind of energy to the performances. Plus, with the addition of these soulful voices, the Sarepta Gentlemen’s Club may just have a shot at salvation after all,” joked Adkins.
Before touring with Adkins, Jill and Kate were on the road with Kelly Clarkson for six years as her background vocalists, seamlessly supplementing Kelly’s talents while building a fan base of their very own. Earning the respect and support of adoring fans, they embarked on a career as a headlining duo, releasing two studio albums (Heart of Stone in 2012 and an acoustic covers album earlier this year). Immediately following their stint with Adkins, the girls will be heading to America’s hat to open for Jann Arden on her Canadian tour.
We are so happy for Jill and Kate, their ongoing successes, and everything their future has to offer. Remember their name(s) – this is just the beginning for this Nashville-based kind, humble, and amazingly talented duo.
