"I find most modern country virtually unlistenable," said Ms. Lewis, who will not be singing duets with Kenny Chesney anytime soon. "I can't relate to the music or the lyrics. But I grew up on Loretta Lynn and Dusty Springfield. I remember lying about it; it wasn't cool to listen to country when I was 12. Ultimately, though, my voice, and the songs I did with Rilo Kiley, were revealing - I had to fess up to being a country fan."

But after being a developing act for so long, it finally feels like we're actually doing it and getting big on our own terms." She laughs. "Our sparkling personalities just continue to attract people everywhere."
