Sisters In Song - The 25 Most Significant Sister Acts in Music History!

Over the years, dozens of sibling musical acts have wowed us with their tight vocal harmonies, their musicianship and even their song craftsmanship. Many of them have had more than one sister, sometimes three, even four in a recording group. Earlier this year, as part of African-American History Month, I ranked the top black family acts, several of which included sisters. This week, I focus on just sisters - in recognition of National Sisters Day - regardless of race, genre or era.

What follows then are the 25 Most Significant Sister Acts in Music History. To make the list is simple, I had two main criteria. First: at least two sisters had to be included in the duo or group, regardless of their role in that group. The presence of brothers, parents or any non-related members was considered incidental and did not affect eligibility for this list. Secondly, the sisters had to have recorded at least one album together as official members of the group.

With that said, here they are, DJRob's ranking of the 25 Most Significant Sister Acts:

25. The Lynns (sisters Peggy and Patsy Lynn)

The Lynns are twin sisters Peggy and Patsy who happen to be the two youngest children of legendary country singer, Loretta Lynn. While not nearly as successful as their mother, they did have some success on the country charts in 1997 and '98 with singles like "Nights Like These" and "Woman to Woman." They received two Country Music Association award nominations for Vocal Duo of the Year in '98 and '99.
