Meet Hot New Country Duo, Miss Willie Brown

Country is undergoing a major fashion renaissance. From Taylor Swift to Little Big Town's Karen Fairchild, country girl style is bleeding more and more into the realm of downtown chic. And even Nashville newbies are getting the memo.

Consider up-and-coming girl-powered duo, Miss Willie Brown. Produced by Keith Stegall (who's worked with big names like Alan Jackson, Zac Brown Band, Randy Travis and more), Amanda Watkins and Kasey Buckley met as waitresses at a barbeque restaurant in California less than four years ago. They've have been co-writing and singing together ever since.

Watkins and Buckley have already racked up a ton of attention—their song "Mad Dog" was featured on Lifetime's Army Wives (as well as The CW’s Hart of Dixie), and they were the first unsigned band to perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live. (Expect a debut album, Bonafide, soon from A&M/Octone Records.) On top of their mastery of classic country twang and their spunky personalities, we're totally into these talented vocalists' country-meets-city style. Read on to see how they handled all the tough fashion questions Lucky threw at them.

My on-stage style is...

"Comfy feminine rock. My off-stage style is the closest thing to bed in the morning."

Amanda Watkins

My on-stage style is...

"Depends on where we are playing. In the honky-tonks I go for more of an American Indian look with jeans, fringe and crop tops. When it comes to big shows or the Opry I'm all about rebels, rhinestones and sequins. My off-stage style is never comfort. I always go for sexy but ladylike. I like jeans and tight tank tops. Hoop earings and high-heeled boots!"

When I'm looking for a bargain I…

"Go to thrift stores or go on Etsy.  If I can't find bargains there, I just cut up some old shirts or jeans that I have and make something new! With Pinterest the options are limitless!"
