Congregations of thousands thrive in Atlanta's bustling metropolis, but it is not just the preacher men who keep these communities afloat. TLC will premiere The Sisterhood on Tuesday, January 1 at 9 PM ET/PT, a candid look into the larger-than-life preacher wives (aka First Ladies) who work to ensure that their families and churches run as smooth as Southern-churned butter. As wives of preachers, First Ladies are held to undeniably high standards. Expectations can be overwhelming as these powerful and driven women are on a mission to overcome obstacles, break molds, expand social circles and raise families... all under the intense scrutiny and pressure of their respective communities. The Sisterhood provides an honest, behind-the-scenes look into the struggles, triumphs and unique experiences that shape these bold women as they ditch their Sunday hats and morph into the dynamic and influential figures they have become and aim to be.

She also recorded a duet with Kenny Rogers at age 10, and by 16 went on her first tour opening for Marty Stuart. Bonagura also graduated from Paul McCartney’s Liverpool Institute for the Performing Arts in 2009. In 2016 she released her solo album Road Less Travelled and it reached no. 11 on the iTunes country chart. Her song “I Make My Own Sunshine” was used in a Lowes commercial. Ruby Stewart is Rod Stewart’s 3rd daughter of 4 daughter. Her mother is Kelly Emberg. Ruby has been touring with her dad since she was 15. From the age of 18 she began modeling for Laura Ashley, Vanity Fair, Italia Vogue, Glamour and Elle. Her first performance was with her dad when she was 7; they sang “Sweet Little Rock and Roller”. At the age of 13 Donnie Ienner of Columbia Records heard Ruby's demo and signed her to a development deal, but her mother and father decided it was to early for her to enter the music business. Ruby formed a rock band called Revoltaire which released one album titled Painted Hour Glass. Ruby Stewart's cover of the song “Whatever Lola Wants” was featured in a Pepsi commercial. Ruby and Alyssa formed The Sisterhood Band in 2015. Within that first year, they recorded their first EP. They describe their music as ‘an organic blend of the open melodies of classic West Coast folk and the magnetic swagger of timeless rock n'roll.’
