IBMA’s “Emerging Artist of the Year” nominee Sister Sadie is back with their latest album, Sister Sadie II, and now on sale. This new project serves as the all-star female group’s sophomore collection, released on Pinecastle Records. Fans can buy the Sister Sadie II album here.
Sister Sadie features world-renowned musicians Dale Ann Bradley, Tina Adair, Gena Britt, Deanie Richardson, and Beth Lawrence, These women originally got together after playing a sold-out show at Nashville’s Station Inn. Following that hype, the women decided to come together as a band and record music under the name Sister Sadie. They have continued to turn heads in the industry.
Sister Sadie is an inspiring musical collaboration bringing together some of the best women bluegrass music has ever claimed – Alison Krauss.
Sister Sadie II features 12 new recordings. Standout moments on the album include the feel-good song No Smoky Mountains, which features Dale Ann Bradley singing lead. The banjo-driven track talks about how difficult and complicated love can be. Another highlight includes the empowering ballad, I’m Not A Candle in the Wind, which showcases the group’s softer side, with one-of-a-kind harmony vocals.
Fans were treated to the lead single, Losing You Blues earlier this year. The track debuted at No. 14 on the Bluegrass Today Airplay Chart, and continues its upward climb. Written by Tina Adair and Doug Bartlett, Losing You Blues spotlights Adair’s powerhouse vocals, along with the group’s tight harmonies. The official video for the song is set to premiere on The Bluegrass Situation, where fans will be given an exclusive first-look.
Continuing on from their monumental year, Sister Sadie, head to Raleigh in North Carolina at the end of September for the annual IBMA Awards. The powerhouse band are finalists in the category for Emerging Artist of the Year.

The Kentucky Music Hall of Fame member is also nominated for Recorded Event of the Year with her Vince Gill duet, I’ll Just Fly Away, also released via Pinecastle Records.
