Country duo, the JaneDear Girls, was formed in 2004 by Susie Brown and Danelle Leverett. Together, the girls display instrumental talents on the guitar, bass, violin, harmonica, banjo, fiddle and accordion, as well as strong vocal skills. The two met during a songwriters’ concert in Nashville, where they were introduced to one another by Kris Bergsnes, another songwriter. The two began writing together and, eventually, chose to become a duo act.
In 2010, they released their first single, “Wildflower.” The song peaked at Number Fifteen on the Hot Country Songs charts. Their next single, “Shotgun Girl,” was on the charts for twenty weeks, peaking at Number Thirty-Six. In 2011, their third single, “Merry Go Round,” peaked at Number Forty-Four. In 2012, their single “Good Girls Gone Bad” was featured on the soundtrack of the ABC drama GCB.
That same year, the two received their first nominations at the Academy of Country Music Awards. They were nominated for Top Vocal Duo and Top New Vocal Duo or Group. They were also nominated for the Duo Video of the Year award at the CMT Music Awards and for Single by a New Artist at the American Country Awards, both for their song “Wildflower.”
In 2012, Brown announced that she would be moving on to record a solo album with producer James Stroud. The same year, Leverett co-wrote the single “That’s Why I Pray” for Big & Rich. She also began recording under the name Nelly Joy.
