Diets work. Even some of the most cockamamie diets work if you follow them. But as many serial dieters know, the trick is keeping the weight off after the wedding, or the high school reunion, or the motivating look in the dressing room mirror.

The Forester Sisters don't give two hoots about being hip. Instead of jumping on the "new traditionalist" bandwagon that's the rage in country music circles, they're singing the same mushy stuff they always have, with the same sweet, melt-in-your mouth vocal harmonies of such celebrated "sister" singing groups of the past like the Andrews Sisters and the McGuire Sisters.
