Pop-country duo Render Sisters, composed of best friends and sisters Mary-Keaton and Stella Render, continues their blossoming maturation and obvious sisterly kinship on their new single, “I Don’t Wanna Know.” The new tune finds the sisters singing about the unpredictable nature of relationships in the modern world. Released everywhere digital music is available on Monday, November 29, “I Don’t Wanna Know” is the sixth single the teen duo has released since their emergence in 2020.
Mary-Keaton and Stella wrote the song with Nashville-based songwriter Doug Kahan (Trick Pony, Clay Walker, Jon Pardi) on a recent trip to Nashville, but the idea behind the song came from an actual relationship which Mary-Keaton had recently been involved in back in their hometown of Pine Bluff, Arkansas.

True to her roots, Remington said she would choose to have a bonfire on her family farm. “Wild In The Woods” is available on all digital streaming and download platforms at wildinthewoodsDR.
“I’m so excited to have written this smash with Dallas. She is so talented, driven, and I’m blessed to call this Kentucky gal my friend. Pumped to see this jam and this future star rise to the top,” exclaimed Mary Kutter!
Wild In The Woods Roots
“I’d heard a guy at a Kroger in Springfield, TN tell someone “I don’t drink anymore, I like to keep my wild in the woods,” and I immediately wrote that down in my phone. When I met Dallas for the first time and she described what she wanted to write, that title fit perfectly. It was a fun write, and I’m so proud that this song will be out in the world,” shared Chris Sligh.
It is always an awesome time when you get to write with someone you’ve grown up in the industry with. Mary Kutter and I have known each other since we were both very young and both still commuting from Kentucky. I was so honored when she invited me to write with her and the amazing vocalist/writer, Chris Sligh. I grew up on a farm down a dead end gravel road in the backwoods of Kentucky and about the only time we ever got to be wild was in the woods or down at the party deck on the creek. Mary, Chris and I wanted to write a “party song” and when Chris threw out the title “Wild in the Woods” – I was hooked. This song is my definition of a good time.” stated Dallas Remington.
“…Way out there, that’s where
I get down till the sun comes up
I don’t need a DJ
Or a big city crowd to have me some fun
I ain’t a stick in the mud
It ain’t that I’m being good
I just keep my wild in the woods
Taking shots at empty bottles
Out where the blacktop ends
I’m a live wire around a bonfire
Dancing like no one’s watching
Guess you misunderstood
In my neck of the woods
We do what you would if you could
Yeah, that’s how we party …”
The past couple years have no doubt been long and stressful for everyone. “Wild in the Woods” was written in the midst of the pandemic when Dallas, Chris and Mary were talking about the types of parties they would have once the world is back to “normal.” Some of Dallas’ favorite memories are of spending time with her family in the woods on their farm. Growing up outdoors with her family and friends exploring, hunting, fishing and ending the day with a bonfire are memories she’ll cherish forever. This upbeat, swampy song places the listener deep in the woods, miles away from the nearest bar or big-city crowd. Enjoying the simpler things with the people you love is what life is all about.

Debut LP Azalea Out Now Announces Azalea Strings EP Available May 24 To Embark On Spring Tour With Hometown Show in Nashville on March 31 Presented by WRLT’s Lightning 100
“hypnotic” — American Songwriter
“The blend of cuttingly honest lyrics, a stunning string section, and viola…creates an atmosphere of dizzying contemplation.” — Wide Open Country
“Luce’s voice has a fascinatingly beautiful quality, which compels you to affectingly feel every single syllable she sings.” — Atwood Magazine
Lydia Luce has revealed a new music video for “Tangerine” off her debut LP, Azalea, which released last fall. The video is premiering at The Bluegrass Situation today, and of the track, Luce offers, “The narrator is comparing themselves to this enchanting Tangerine character who she assumes has this great power of seduction that she doesn’t have. In the bridge she is asking her lover, ‘If I were more like her, would you look at me the same way?’” “Tangerine” evokes similar raw and honest emotions as Dolly Parton’s “Jolene,” and the video channels that emotion into striking dance choreography that is a product of Luce’s collaboration with Erin Kouwe of the Nashville Ballet. The artistically stunning visual arrives ahead of a string of spring tour dates that begin March 29 in New Orleans and include a hometown show in Nashville on March 31 presented by WRLT’s Lightning 100 (full tour details below). WATCH: Lydia Luce’s “Tangerine” Music Video Born into a musical family, Luce’s first instrument was viola, and by age 13 she was performing in her mother’s orchestra. She studied at Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA and earned a master’s degree in viola performance from University of California Los Angeles (UCLA). For Azalea, Luce tapped producers Jordan Lehning (Rodney Crowell, Joshua Hedley) and Skylar Wilson (Justin Townes Earle, Rayland Baxter) to combine her classical training with Americana and folk influences for a collection that feels organic and comfortable in a way that only lifelong talent can create. American Songwriter calls the music “hypnotic,” and Wide Open Country adds, “The blend of cuttingly honest lyrics, a stunning string section, and viola…creates an atmosphere of dizzying contemplation.” Additionally, Atwood Magazine praises, “Luce’s voice has a fascinatingly beautiful quality, which compels you to affectingly feel every single syllable she sings.” LISTEN: Lydia Luce’s Debut LP Azalea Out Now Luce recently announced an Azalea Strings EP, available May 24, that features instrumental and live quintet versions of select songs from the original full-length. Last week, she released the first of several double singles, which comprises two new renditions of album standout “Helen.” “Helen – (String Sessions)” was recorded live at Layman Drug Company with a string quintet, and “Helen (Instrumental)” replaces the vocal lines with viola performances by Luce. Of the forthcoming EP, Luce offers, “Strings were such a beautiful and important part of Azalea, and I wanted to share this part of me with everyone who enjoyed the record.” LISTEN: Lydia Luce’s “Helen – (String Sessions)” Streaming Now
