Sunday Morning Country Country Classic Spotlight to Feature the Forester Sisters
From the moment their debut single “That’s What You Do” hit the top ten in 1985, the Forester Sisters were off and running towards one of the more successful country careers of the decade.
After several hit songs from their self titled debut album, the Forester Sisters were chosen the AMC’s vocal group of the year. The Forester Sisters; Kathy, June, Kim and Christy were born on Georgia’s Look Out Mountain. The sisters grew up on church singing, while greatly influenced by country music.
Kathy and June were both teachers after graduating from college and sang together in a local band at night. Kim joined in 1978, Christy joined the group when she finished college. After their first top ten hit “That’s What You Do” the next three, “I Fell In Love Again Last Night,” “Just In Case” and “Mama’s Never Seen Those Eyes” went to number one in 1985 and 1986.
The group went on to having eight more top ten hits. Today the sisters concentrate on raising their families. Kathy and June went back to teaching. Kim and Christy work in interior design in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
