|Biography: The best performances come from people who work well together. That would be a major understatement for twin sisters Debbie and Carrie Moore. Having sung together all of their lives, there is something really special about the close knit harmony they create. Adept at working with an audience and making them part of their performance, Moore & Moore give the all out kind of show that only comes from the heart.
Debbie and Carrie hail originally from Belton, Missouri. It was easy to see that these two were destined for musical careers. As young girls, they were shy performers, resulting in hiding behind the family couch when relatives tried to coax them to perform. To see them on stage today, you would never guess that they would ever do anything else. They grew up listening to old records and would memorize all the words. By the time they were teenagers, they were performing in their church choir, at weddings, talent shows and in numerous school groups. They wrote their high school graduation song and were voted "Most Talented" by their senior class. "We sang our senior class song at the Kansas City Music Hall for graduation. After hearing the applause and seeing how we could touch people through our music, we knew from that moment on....we were put on this earth to sing!"
After playing clubs all over the United States and Canada, Debbie and Carrie made the move to Nashville, Tennessee. "We were told that a lot of people go back home after giving Nashville only a few months. We had been living in an apartment about that long when a light bulb went out in the ceiling. When we had to stack suitcases to change it, we knew it was time to bring down the furniture and become Nashvillians."
It was a good move for Moore & Moore. In 1991, they released their first single, "Out With The Old" which stayed at #1 for seven weeks on the Independent Charts. This is still the longest running #1 debut single in Independent Chart history. The accompanying debut video won Video Challenge five nights in a row on The Nashville Network's Video PM. There have been four Number One singles since that release: "Steal Me A Heart", "Don't Come Knocking", "Break Down the Walls" and "I Surrender".
From 1991 until now, Moore and Moore have received several awards and nominations from Indie Bullet, Airplay International, TNN/Music City News Awards, BMI, NSAI, and NATD. Their success has prompted appearances on WTBS's Roots of Country with Robert Oermann, The Sally Jessy Raphael Show, and TNN's Nashville Now, Video Morning, Video PM, Country Beat, Miller and Company, Music City Tonight, Club Dance, Wildhorse Saloon Show, TNN Country News, The Statler Brothers Show, and Prime Time Country.
In 1994 they were asked to go on tour as the opening act for the legendary Statler Brothers. In 1995, they were honored to make their first appearance on the world famous Grand Ole Opry. In 1996, they performed in Korea and Japan for the military and received the Award for International Duo of the Year. In 1997 they toured Europe with the Bellamy Brothers and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. In 1999, they toured Australia and Europe. Debbie Moore co-wrote the song "Wish You Were Here" with Bill Anderson and Skip Ewing recorded by Mark Wills on Mercury Records. It went to #1 on the Billboard, R&R, and Gavin Charts in April 1999. Moore & Moore continue to tour internationally and have won the International Duo & Entertainer Of The Year Awards for several years running. In the past few years, they have toured Norway, Spain and Switzerland and most recently, a tour of Denmark.
They have worked with the Gatlin Brothers, Alabama, Marty Stuart, Jerry Reed, The Oak Ridge Boys, Smokey Robinson, Mark Chesnutt, Bill Anderson, The Temptations, Sam Moore, Tom T. Hall, The Jordanaires, Doug Kershaw, Ricky Van Shelton, Billy Ray Cyrus, Bryan White, Ricochet, Perfect Stranger, Ty Herndon, Kenny Chesney and many others.
Moore & Moore's album, "Million Roses" (with special guests, Bill Anderson, Shawn Camp, The Jordanaires and Jerry Reed) has received rave reviews and an Airplay Gold Record "for Radio Report Points and Overall Industry Acceptance". Moore & Moore's newest album, "Meant To Be" (with special guests, Jan Howard & Jeannie Seely, George "Goober" Lindsey, Pirates Of The Mississippi and Johnny Rodriguez)has been nominated for the 2007 Country Album of The Year by the Independent Music Awards. A single/video of the song, "Find Me A Man Like Goober" will be released in April 2007!
The star-and-rhinestone-studded premiere of the "Find Me a Man Like Goober" at the Belcourt Theatre in Nashville on March 21st was a huge success! The video by sister act Moore & Moore features George "Goober" Lindsey and 17 country music legends, including Ray Stevens, Mel Tillis, Bill Anderson, Bobby Bare, Ralph Emery and Little Jimmy Dickens. Most of the stars and fans from at least seven states attended the gala event at the packed theater.
