PINE BLUFF, Ark. – 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.

“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.”

“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.”
