Sweethearts Of The Rode have an RSS feed for their news items, notes and tour dates. You can subscribe to the Sweethearts Of The Rodeo RSS feed in one of two ways:
1. By email. With this method you will receive one email on each day that there is new content.
2. Via an RSS reader. With this method you will receive updates almost immediately after they are posted.
Click on one of the buttons below to subscribe.
If you wish to use a web browser to view and/or subscribe to the feed you can see the RSS icon at the right hand side of the URL bar on all of the pages on this site. There's only one feed, we just make it available throughout the site.
RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. RSS feeds provide summaries of web site content allowing frequent users to easily track site updates and additions without having to actually visit the site. Lots of news organizations use RSS to provide subscribers with current news events. The biggest advantage of using and RSS feed is that you don't have to visit a web site, the information comes to you.
The Sweethearts' RSS feed provides you with news, notes and tour dates. All news items, notes and tour dates are included the the feed. If you subscribe to the feed you will receive updates about news, notes and tour dates as soon as they are published on the web site. Again, you don't have to worry about coming to the website and checking for new information. It will come directly to you!
The first thing you need is a "news reader." There are a variety of options available. Most "modern" web browsers have built in RSS capabilities which allow you to view RSS feeds from directly within the browser itself. These include Safari 3 & 4, Firefox 2 & 3, Opera 9 and Internet Explorer 7 & 8. You will know that an RSS feed is available from a particular site if you see the RSS logo in the URL address bar (Internet Explorer displays an icon in the menu bar). Simply click on the RSS logo to view the feed. There are also many "stand alone" programs which you may download and install on your computer. All of these options allow you to display and subscribe to the RSS feeds you want. For more information see the section below on "Recommended Programs."
Either method (viewing RSS feeds within your browser or installing a stand alone program) will work. The main advantage to using a stand alone program is that you can subscribe to as many feeds as you want. Then, every time you open the program, all of your feeds will be automatically updated. This way you can browse multiple feeds from one easy location. For instance, you might have feeds from the Sweethearts, USA Today, CMA, The New York Times and lots more. Some people just subscribe to a few feeds. Others have been known to subscribe to hundreds! If you use a browser you'll have to navigate to each feed you wish to browse. So, using a stand alone program can make reading and following feeds much more efficient.
We recommend Google Reader for an online RSS service. We also recommend FeedDemon for Windows users and their sister product, NetNewsWire for Macintosh users if you want to use a stand alone product. These are the best RSS stand alone programs we have found. And both are free! Not only that, they allow you to synch with GoogleReader to also read all your feeds in one easy place on the web if you are away from your computer.

Music News Nashville Review
Here's a review of the new album from Music News Nashville. "If you go back to the mid 1980s, you would find that country radio as at its' most adventurous level. You had legends like Haggard, Twitty, and Jones still notching hit records, as well as mainstream acts like Alabama, George Strait, and Reba McEntire. You also had acts such as Lyle Lovett and Steve Earle that were not just critical darlings, but radio favorites, as well." Read more...
New Sweetheart CD Available Now!
Our new CD, Restless, is now available! It's been a long time coming, and we're excited to share our new music with you. This project was produced by Dave Pomeroy and the Sweethearts Of The Rodeo. We had a killer band in the studio including Al Perkins, Rick Lonow, Dave Pomeroy, Kenny Vaughan, Richard Bennett, Vince Santoro, Jim " Moose" Brown, Jeff Taylor, Richard Bailey, and Steven Sheehan. We'll be talking more about the individual tracks, and how each musician contributed. The CD is available here on our website and also from iTunes and various other sites.
We can't wait to get out there and perform again. You can expect a great band, and a fun show. We know how to have a good time on stage and no doubt there will be lots of opportunities to torment each other. We are sisters after all.
Hello and welcome to our website! We're so glad you stopped by. We have lots of exciting Sweethearts news to let you in on, so please keep checking back for updates to our site. This is just the beginning!
You'll want to check out the incredible work of photographer Cybelle Codish. We loved working with her. The location was Janis' farm in Franklin, TN. We started at 4AM with makeup and wardrobe, then went to the farm for sunrise. We didn't stop till the sunset, so it was one long day. We filmed this as well, so we'll be showing you some behind-the-scenes clips. Cybelle's work is also featured on the CD package.
A Family Wedding
Note from Janis: My daughter, Jenny Gill, was married to Josh Van Valkenberg on May 8th, 2010! It was a magical ceremony, and one rocking' party. The event took place at Vince and Amy's lovely home in Nashville, TN. The whole day was filled with love, hugs, and tears of joy. Jenny was so beautiful, she took my breath away.
