Emmylou Harris can sing harmony with anybody - or everybody -- but what if she had a sister? There's just something about sibling singers, whether they're the the Louvins, the Andrewses or the Everlys. Now we have the Ginn Sisters (pronounced with a hard G), two young Texans whose exquisitely sung brand of acoustic roots music walks the line between alternative and traditional country. Their second CD, "Blood Oranges," sparkles - from the acoustic country rock of "Down the Drain" to the hard country of "Broken Spirit" and "Hard Fall (From Saturday Night)." Tiffani Ginn is the lead singer and songwriter, possessed of a muscular voice and a sharp pen. Brit Ginn sings the harmonies, and shines on flute; check out her unusual and terrific work on "Let It Burn." The Ginns cut their teeth in school and church, and they've toured constantly since their 2003 debut, "Generally Happy," playing with the likes of Robert Earl Keen, Fred Eaglesmith and Delbert McClinton.
