Sweethearts of the Rodeo was a popular country duo from the USA in the late 1980s and early 1990s. They consisted of sisters Janis Oliver and Kristine Oliver, who grew up in suburban Los Angeles. While still in their teenage years they performed as the Oliver Sisters. Janis eventually married singer Vince Gill, who at the time was a member of Pure Prairie League. The sisters named themselves after a landmark album by The Byrds which fused elements of rock with country. A typical Sweethearts tune is an upbeat two-stepper mixing country instrumentation with a rock beat.
