The Sisterhood Reflects On Bucket List Week
The Sisterhood experienced a bucket list week recently. The new country duo made their Grand Ole Opry debut on Sunday, Aug. 20, before performing at a solar eclipse viewing party the next day.
“It was an absolute honor to make our debut on a rare Sunday night show–one which has never been done in the history of the Grand Ole Opry,” enthused The Sisterhood’s Ruby Stewart. “To share the bill with some of our biggest inspirations in country music was surreal for us.”
Duo member Alyssa Bonagura responded, “There’s nothing more magical than being at the Opry, but to play on the eve of the new moon solar eclipse added an unforgettable energy.”
She added, “To be introduced by country radio legend Bill Cody who has always supported our music, and to have our Sony Nashville team and families side stage made the evening so special for us.”
On Monday (Aug. 21) The Sisterhood provided the soundtrack for the momentous Total Solar Eclipse as they performed at a private event in downtown Nashville. The duo did a set prior to the celestial moment, followed by an eclipse encore performance of the Bonagura/Stewart co-penned song, “Tethered.”
The Sisterhood summed it up best, “Playing on the rooftop of the Sony/WME building with the Nashville skyline as our backdrop was the perfect setting to welcome the new moon solar eclipse. It marked new beginnings and a full circle moment for us!”
