We in the country world, all know about Brad and Marylynne Stella from their CMT show, “The Stellas” and from hearing them on the radio with their hits, ‘In This House’ and ‘Riding In the Backseat’ and seeing them at the CCMA Awards this past September. Now their daughters, “The Stella Sisters” are heading toward stardom as well. Lennon and Maisy Stella (13 and 8 respectively) are portraying the daughters of a fading country star on ABC’s “Nashville” (airing in Canada on CTV). This hot hit show stars Connie Britton as Rayna, a country star who’s career is on the wane. Britton can also be seen on the show American Horror Story.
The Stella family moved down to the capitol of country music back in 2009 and the girls have been living, attending school and meeting lots of their singing heroes ever since. There are plans to eventually record and release an album but the pair plan to test the waters with a Christmas single first.
They filmed their version of the pop hit, ‘Call Your Girlfriend’ by Robyn, at home to show their parents. It was posted on youtube and nine million views later it was featured on Ellen DeGeneres and several other talk shows. To watch it follow this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?
The next generation of country stars are in the wings. Congratulations to this dynamic duo.
