In the third part of our interview the Country Sisters will reveal some details about playing festivals with US country stars. This instance, this interview was taped in Interlaken, where they performed with the Bellamy Brothers, Tanya Tucker, Terri Clark and Burns & Poe. What is it like to personally meet with artists that most people know only from music videos and posters?

You often perform with American country stars. Can you recall any particular stories regarding any well-known artists?

Sonia:
"There's a lot of stories..."

Claire:
"For example when I was running in the 40-degree heat in Interlaken to our car for CD's and backstage there were musicians from the Bellamy Brothers' band, who shouted at me: 'hop! hop! hop! hop!'"

Sonia:
"The question is why they shouted 'hop! hop!"  (laughs)

Claire:
"Awww, Sonia!!!"  (laughs)

Sonia:
"What costume were you wearing?"

Claire:
"The tiger one. Hmm, so it could have been hop hop... " (laughs) "But naturally it's always a great experience. You realize they are normal people, too. Some of the stories can't be published, though..."  (laughs)

Sonia:
"It's also great to play and sing with those musicians in private."

Claire:
"Yep, it's pretty cool when you find out that not only do they know songs most people around you don't know about, but they are able to play them all for you. And you also get to see how great and versatile artists they are."

Sonia:
"Especially the American musicians."

Claire:
"For example it was wonderful when we were hanging around with Steve [Waylon] and he suddenly took the guitar and asked if any of us knew "Breefing". I mean "Breathe" by Faith Hill, I call it breefing..." (laughs) Many of them just don't stick with a particular genre and their musical direction is really wide."


So you are fans at the same time. Do you go to concerts, too?


Sonia:
"We usually see other artists where we currently play, so we are always glad to watch their show, too. And the best thing about it is we don't have to pay for it!" (laughs) "We can spend as much time backstage as we want and we can also take pictures with them. But I think that all of us love going to see our favorite artists in concert."

Claire:
"By the way, Urban, if you are reading this, get over here quick!"
