Sister trio SheDaisy (or SHeDAISY, if you're picky) rode in on the late-'90s wave of female country-pop, following in the stylistic footsteps of Shania Twain, Faith Hill, and the Dixie Chicks. Kristyn, Kelsi, and Kassidy Osborn grew up in the small Utah town of Magna, near Salt Lake City, and started singing together as young girls, often putting on shows for their neighborhood. As they grew older, Kristyn spent more time alone writing songs, while Kelsi and Kassidy performed locally as a duo. After graduating from high school, eldest sister Kristyn joined her sisters, making them a three-part harmony group. They adapted their name from a Navajo word meaning "my sisters" and started taking their act all over the western U.S. Eventually they moved to Nashville in search of a record deal, working at department stores to pay the bills, and caught on with the smaller, Disney-owned label Lyric Street. Their debut album, The Whole Shebang, was released in 1999 and gave the group a breakthrough single in "Little Good-Byes," which went to number three on the country charts. "I Will...But" made number two, and "This Woman Needs" became the group's third Top Ten hit, helping The Whole Shebang go platinum.
While SHeDAISY readied their proper follow-up, they kept music on the market via a 2000 holiday album, Brand New Year, and a remixed version of the debut, The Whole Shebang: All Mixed Up, in 2001. Finally, their sophomore effort, Knock on the Sky, was released in the summer of 2002. Though its singles didn't enjoy the same level of commercial success, Sky did reach number three on the country charts, and sated the trio's growing fan base. SHeDAISY returned in 2004 with the solid pop-country effort Sweet Right Here and the enjoyable lead single, "Passenger Seat," followed by the 12-track Fortuneteller's Melody in 2006. ~ Steve Huey
