The story of how Highway Sisters was formed starts with the creation of The Highway Women in Dallas, Texas. The Highway Women was formed by a small label in Dallas, Texas and went through many "evolutions" of women until finally becoming solid when Sara Spicer and Amelia Presley were added to the group alongside KK Bodiford who had been in the band from the beginning. The three women were asked to move to the Dallas area together for three months so that they could get to know each other and mesh. The three meshed instantly musically and as friends. They gained the attention of the media rapidly and soon made their TV debut on CBS's Great Day Houston.
Without notice, on August 10, 2017, an announcement was made that Presley's estranged manager had been given ownership of The Highway Women. The women received a release letter via email later that day. Sara Spicer was advised by her PR to proceed with her solo career. KK Bodiford and Amelia Presley began to brainstorm about how they would proceed. A day or so later, as the two were on the road between states, they tossed around names and finally arrived on Highway Sisters.
On August 14, 2017, like a phoenix arises from the ashes, Highway Sisters officially arose from the ashes of The Highway Women. The announcement that Highway Sisters would be continuing their journey together was made on social media. The very same day, the new owner of The Highway Women announced that she would be rebranding and creating an all new band under The Highway Women. The fans were in an uproar and posted angry comments on the post expressing their disapproval until the new owner had to take the page down. Highway Sisters gained over 1,000 followers in a matter of two days and the number continues to grow with new and old fans. Highway Sisters announced that they would be continuing with the shows that they had previously booked as The Highway Women.
