Shelby and Allison

If, in the mid 90s, you had to bet on which Moorer sister (Shelby Lynne or Allison) would have made it big, who would you have bet on? I think I would have bet on Shelby since Allison's voice is a tad idiosyncratic (she does sound a bit like Cher, which is fine if you're Cher, but I think's it's a little problematic in terms of a mainstream country audience). Alas, neither has sold a lot of records, though they've both put out some dandies (The Hardest Part and The Duel for Allison and I am Shelby Lynne and Just a Little Lovin' for Shelby are my faves). They also have performed together (see the pix to the right) so here's a sisterly comp for folks to enjoy.
