A pair of former Twin Cities sister musicians who traveled to Nashville, Tenn., to realize their country music dreams are back in town for their debut appearance on KSTP-TV's "Twin Cities Live" Wednesday.

Taylor and Chloe Turner's group Chasing Lovely will perform on the ABC affiliate's show as part of a lead-in to the network's second season premiere of the country music drama "Nashville."

Taylor Turner, 20, and Chloe Turner, 18, both went to Edina High School, and moved to Nashville with their mom and manager, Kat Turner, in 2010. Since then, Chasing Lovely has been playing clubs in and around the country music capital.

The Turners haven't forgotten their roots, though. Over the summer, the Turners returned to Minnesota for several gigs.

The girls are unique on the scene because of their Asian ancestry. Kat Turner was born in Korea and adopted by an Iowa family, and moved to Minnesota where she worked for such broadcasters as WCCO-TV. Both Taylor and Chloe were raised in Minnesota.

"There are not a lot of Asians in Nashville," Taylor Turner told Edina magazine in an interview for this month's issue. "But Chloe and I view it as an advantage because people remember us."

The duo also completed a successful Kickstarter campaign last year to raise funds to record their first album, "Breathless."

On the album, the Turners employed the talents of Martina McBride's band, Blake Shelton's fiddle player and pedal steel players who have performed with the likes of Garth Brooks and Reba McIntire.

The Turners will both play and be interviewed on "Twin Cities Live," which begins at 3 p.m. CT on KSTP.
