Sisters and best friends Mary-Keaton (16) and Stella (14) Render, an emerging pop-country duo from Arkansas suitably named Render Sisters, are set to release their harmonious second single “Count On Me Count On You” on Friday, September 18. The new song celebrates their special bond of sisterhood, and the connection they have with each other.
“This song is very special to us since it reflects on our relationship as sisters and the friendship we share with each other,” said Mary-Keaton. Stella agreed, saying, “Not only is this the first song we wrote together, it was the easiest song we have ever written because it is about our bond as sisters.”
Today, the Arkansas Democrat Gazette exclusively premiered a first listen of the new tune as part of their recent interview. Plus, the song’s video will exclusively premiere on The Heartland Network’s ‘Country Music Today’ show beginning on Wednesday, September 23 at 2pm ET/PT, along with their official YouTube channel.
“Count On Me Count On You” was co-written with accomplished Nashville songwriter Britton Cameron (Don Williams, Jon Pardi, Lonestar) who’s been working with these young songstresses on developing their life’s stories into beautiful melodic harmonies.
Render Sisters joined PCG Artist Development’s Emerging Artist Development program in 2019, a nationally recognized performing arts development firm led by accomplished music executive Bernard Porter. Additionally, Mary-Keaton and Stella continue to be mentored by country music icon Pam Tillis, who co-directed their first video “Lost Boy,” along with overseeing the styling for both videos.
“The moment I met the Render Sisters I could sense their maturity,” Pam Tillis recalled. “My unexpected moment came when I heard them sing ‘Lost Boy’ and how easy they made it all sound. It was an intriguing melody that caught me off guard, with Everly-esque harmonies and simple but haunting lyrics. These gems in the rough from rural Arkansas don’t need much polishing, just more opportunities to do what comes naturally.”
