Leigh have been performing support vocals for Reba McEntire for 3 years, while Nicks have been McEntire’s and her spouse’s personal associate. However, both Reginas didn’t decide to interact appropriately until they fulfilled during a lunch time break in maker Willy Wilson’s workplace and sang ‘Amazing Elegance’ together. From then on, they informed Billboard journal in 1996, ‘we under no circumstances looked back again’. Wilson forwarded a cassette to Stroud, who was simply instantly impressed by the duo’s capability to match each additional’s phrasing, pitch and harmonies – a lot in order that he originally thought these were sisters. They started focus on their debut record in March 1996, using materials compiled by Gary Burr/ Tom Shapiro, Patty Smythe and Tia Retailers.
