“Barnabus” is a funny and playful song about our pet turtle (a tortoise actually) who received fame… but not from his name!
“Around the Bend” released October 8th is an upbeat feel good tune… a song that is full of hope during a time when hope is needed!
Smith Sisters and the Sunday Drivers have had a few names in their history.
Originally the Smith Sisters had a swing band named “Boyz and the Beez”.
Just prior to their dad, Fred Smith, passing away he suggested that the sisters form a bluegrass band… saying that their music leaned itself toward the country/bluegrass genre.
At their fathers advice the girls formed a band and named it Smith Sisters Bluegrass.
It was quickly discovered that using the word “Bluegrass” categorized them solely as a bluegrass band.
Since the Smith Sisters perform country western, country and bluegrass they again decided to change their name to Smith Sisters and The Sunday Drivers.
The thought was since they have many players and guest vocalists record and perform live with them, they could officially be known as “The Sunday Drivers”. Thus the name SMITH SISTERS AND THE SUNDAY DRIVERS arrived!

Smith Sisters have always given us sweet harmony and often sentimental songs. ‘Face To Face’ is a new offering from them giving waltz style ‘country comfort’ to anyone who has lost a family member. Its gentle styling, clean believable vocals, musicianship and delivery all add to a great song. – Brian Clough, CMA International Broadcaster of the Year 2009 – The American Connection Country Music Show (UK)
The Smith Sisters make music that tells beautiful stories that touch your heart with the tracks If You Love Me, Pennies On the Ground, I Could Quit You In A Minute, Face To Face, I Wanna Be A Star In Heaven, and By His Grace. I was quite impressed with the vocals and harmonies on this album as well as their performance and how it was written and recorded. If you are a bluegrass fan as I am, you will definitely want to add this album to your music library. I am looking forward to hearing more from this amazing duo. – Oasis Entertainment
“In a song like Face to Face by the Smith Sisters, Father’s Day is illustrated in love with beautiful original lyrics, tight delivery, and the band’s classic styled Country Music musicianship. Their late Dad’s lingering love is united with them (Kelli & Wendi) through well crafted verses, harmony and sincerity within this recording. The lucid dream scenario in this song of seeing their father and holding his hand, gives us who are listening the assurance that they will all be together again in the next life. “Face to Face” by the Smith Sisters is a country song that could perhaps easily be licensed for an A-lister like Emmy Lou Harris or Dolly Parton.” Grade: A+ – Steve Cool Beans Pullara, GRAMMY® Recipient Producer, Twice Nominated and Multi-Award Winning Recording Artist & Producer
