Dolly Parton


Thanks to his sister, Dahl was exposed to country music in elementary school and later became a fan of everyone from Rascal Flatts to Taylor Swift. “I’ve always loved that countrypop stuff, and being able to dive into it with our music is really cool and something that I didn’t necessaril­y think we would be able to do when we started,” he says. As for other inspiratio­ns, the trio is unanimousl­y all-in on Parton (Russell grew up going to the Dixie Stampede in Branson, Mo.), and the act even has a song concept for her that she may make a surprise appearance on. While favorite songs of hers include “I Will Always Love You” and “Jolene,” the trio says if it had to choose, its idea for the country icon is most aligned with “9 to 5.”
