When twin sisters Ava and Lily Rashed stepped on stage to sing a modern country song on the competition series America’s Most Musical Family, they ended up being compared to a classic country legend.
Ava and Lily performed one of the hottest songs in country music right now…Lady Antebellum‘s latest single, “What If I Never Get Over You.” Released as a single in May, “What If I Never Get Over You” has been steadily advancing up the charts ever since.
The track has climbed as high as the fifth spot on the Hot Country Songs chart. It also crossed over to the all-genre Billboard Hot 100, and has reached the 47th position on that chart.
The trio’s accompanying music video for the song is popular as well. As of press time, it has generated over 12 million views.
So Ava and Lily surely knew they had a lot to live up to when they chose to cover “What If I Never Get Over You” on America’s Most Musical Family.
But the twins had nothing to worry about. The judges were enchanted by their performance, with judge Debbie Gibson complimenting the “purity” of their voices.
Debbie then went on to give them even higher praise, drawing comparisons between the twins and country music icon Dolly Parton:
“What I love is that you guys have a modern look, you’ve got style [and] your sound is reminiscent of the old-school [country] like Dolly Parton. I could hear that true vibrato in there…[something] people tried to change in me. Don’t let anyone do that to you.”
15 year-old talented #PEI twins Ava and Lily Rashed had an adventure this summer. They were invited to Hollywood to compete on a brand new show from @Nickelodeon called “America’s Most Musical Family.” We hear about the experience today on Mainstreet https://t.co/66Bj4erNcP pic.twitter.com/z4EqPz39PI

To no one’s surprise, the twins advanced to the next stage of the competition. They were eliminated the following week, but definitely made their mark on the show!
You can watch Ava and Lily’s performance of “What If I Never Get Over You” in the video below. Once you see it, you’ll understand why Debbie compared them to Dolly.
These two are stars in the making, no doubt about it!
