The Dairy Daughters

Raised on dairy farms and country music, Shelby Dressel and Megan Gertken form the Nashville-based country duo, the Dairy Daughters. Shelby grew up in Avon FL and was a Top 40s finalist from season 9 of American Idol. This led to a performance and interview on Ellen. Originally from Albany MN, Megan Gertken has played the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, and performed across the US, Canada and Europe during the 2013 America’s Got Talent tour. They met in Nashville, onstage at the world famous Tootsie's Orchid Lounge.

The Dairy Daughters sound is inspired by the vocal bluegrass tones of Patty Loveless and classic melodies of George Strait. It’s easy listening grass fed organic country gold! Listen for their new single “Tomboy,” at radio and digital outlets now.
