Best Country

Sterling Sisters

Some of our more purist friends might find a bone to pick with our choice of some art-school kids as the town’s best country act. But ain’t nobody nowhere put out better country songs in the past year than this band. Just try to find a better country tune than “Red, White, and Beauty.” Eric Paltell’s pedal steel and Andrew Haas’ banjo provide the perfect backdrop for the haunting harmonies of Scout Paré-Phillips and George Cessna. They’re prolific, too, releasing Hale at the end of 2012 and then Songs for the Donors, part of a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for a tour, earlier this year, with Slim Cessna (George’s pa). In the future, this band might just define Baltimore high and lonesome.
