The Sisterhood sign with Sony

Monday, June 19, 2017 – A duo comprised of the offspring of well-known musicians, The Sisterhood, signed a record deal with Sony Music Nashville.

Alyssa Bonagura and Ruby Stewart signed with Sony prior to the start of their performance at 3rd & Lindsley in Nashville Saturday evening. Bonagura is daughter of Kathie Baillie and Michael Bonagura of Baillie & The Boys, and Stewart's father is rocker Rod Stewart.

Sony Music Nashville Chairman & CEO Randy Goodman welcomed The Sisterhood to the stage where they each signed the contract followed by Goodman introducing them as "Sony Music Nashville's newest additions to our roster - The Sisterhood." The duo, who returned the day before from opening Rod Stewart's 10-city stadium tour in the United Kingdom, performed an hour-long set featuring their country rock melodies and harmonies.

Saturday was also Stewart's birthday. Rod Stewart sent a bagpipe player for the festivities.
