					THE WRECKERS

Vocal Duo of the Year
During their brief but productive creative union as The Wreckers, Michelle Branch and Jessica Harp took the Country Music community by storm with a fresh sound that reflected both their appreciation for the genre’s traditions as well as their hit-making pop sensibilities. The duo’s Maverick/Warner Bros. 2006 Gold debut album Stand Still, Look Pretty produced the No. 1 single “Leave the Pieces,” the Top 10 track “My Oh My” and helped The Wreckers earn three Vocal Duo nominations. Prior to forming The Wreckers, Branch and Harp both enjoyed solo careers. Branch had established herself as a successful young singer/songwriter when her 2001 Maverick debut album The Spirit Room, went Platinum. Harp had been about to sign a solo record deal when she and Branch formed The Wreckers, and put that on hold while the duo recorded their debut album and toured in support of the release. Despite The Wreckers success, both Branch and Harp opted to return to solo status. Harp is working on her solo Warner Bros. debut album. Branch is also working on a new project. As their swan song, Warner Bros. released Way Back Home: Live from New York City late last year. The CD/DVD was recorded at New York’s Bowery Ballroom in 2007 and features material from Stand Still, Look Pretty as well as two new tunes — “Same Truck, Different Loser” and “Damn That Radio.”
