It’s another week and a new webisode of Rankin Road Rules! April and Amy Rankin aka The Rankin Twins recently went to Nashville for a co-writing session. The Rankin Twins give us a couple of ways to get the creative juices flowing this week.
PS did you see their “Don’t Mess With Texas” commercial for the Texas Highway Commission? I posted it here.
Amy and April Rankin, or “Number 1” and “Number 2” as they sometimes jokingly call themselves, grew up in a small rural town on the southern coast of Texas with friends and family as their practice audiences. They discovered their love of creating music together, so after college graduation and a brief stint with desk jobs, the sisters realized they couldn’t escape the reality of their fate and quickly began their musical journey. However, the ladies’ resolve was tested almost immediately when Amy had to undergo unexpected brain surgery to remove a tumor. The optimism and faith that came from this experience has buried itself firmly into the foundation of their music. Amy explains, “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.”
