If you flashback to '90s and early 2000's country music, girl power was a hot commodity. From groups like The Chicks and SheDaisy to solo stars like Shania Twain, Carrie Underwood and Faith Hill, ladies were ruling the country airwaves.

In recent years, that trend has been eclipsed by bro country as the genre has been dominated by male voices. However, sister duo Tigirlily Gold is determined to help put women back into the forefront.

Reared in the small town of Hazen, North Dakota, Kendra and Krista Slaubaugh grew up is a house full of music lovers.

Kendra, the older of the two, started piano lessons in second grade and began posting home videos of her singing covers on YouTube. Meanwhile, at 10, Krista started learning guitar and writing her own original songs. Not long after that, the pair of sisters began blending their voices and sharing videos of their rich harmonies through social media.

By 2013, at the ages of 16 and 14, the girls decided to pursue music full-time. They banded together to form Tigirlily Gold and began touring around the midwest, garnering their own loyal fanbase.

Four years later, they made the leap and moved to Music City where they enrolled in Belmont University in search of music business degrees and landed weekly residencies at Nudie’s Honky Tonk and Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row on Nashville’s famed lower Broadway.

Honing their craft with notoriously tough and rowdy crowd on Broadway, the sisters cut their teeth through years of four-hour cover gigs and developed a captivating and high-energy performance style that's reflected in their live shows today.

Everything came to a head for the pair of golden-haired sisters with the onset of the pandemic in 2020. With their main source of income – the gigs on Broadway – being dried up, they were at a crossroads with no plan B. However, a fateful record deal with Monument Records turned it all around.

Releasing their viral hit, 'Somebody Does' in 2021, which debuted at the top of the iTunes all-genre chart, their self-titled EP came shortly after, reaching No. 2 on the iTunes country chart.

As the saying goes, though, Nashville is a ten year town, and in 2023 Tigirlily Gold has been enjoying their breakthrough year as well as their long-awaited Grand Ole Opry debut.

Their four-song EP, Blonde, arrived in June and includes their breakout single, 'Shoot Tequila.' Climbing up the country charts, the viral party anthem serves as a reference point for the heights that this dynamic duo will rise to in the years to come.

Armed with years of stage experience and a growing collection of relatable songs in their arsenal, Tigirlily Gold has enough star potential to shoot them into the country music stratosphere in no time at all. And with any luck, we just may get the girl power resurgence that we've all been waiting for.
