Lydia and Laura Rogers grew up in Muscle Shoals, Ala., where hearing bluegrass and old-time music was as natural as breathing to the girls. Both their parents and grandparents were in touring bands, so there was plenty of music in their home, but it was in church where the two perfected their Elysian harmonies. Channeling their love of the past into their harmonies, the Rogers sisters caught the ear of White Stripes frontman Jack White. White, who produced Loretta Lynn's acclaimed Van Lear Rose, was a natural in bringing out the sisters' brooding harmonies. He produced their debut single, a cover of Johnny Cash's "Big River," for his Third Man Records. From there, they signed to Universal, and when award-winning producer T Bone Burnett heard the Rogers sing, he started up his own imprint with which to record and release their music. The Secret Sisters was released in 2010.
