The Forester Sisters are an American country music vocal group consisting of sisters Kathy, June, Kim and Christy Forester.

They also released ten albums, including a Christmas album, for the Warner Bros. Records label.

The sisters had their initial singing experience in church. Kathy and June, the two eldest, both took jobs as teachers after graduating from college, and sang together in a local band by night. Kim joined in 1978, and the sisters soon hit on the idea of forming their own group; after Christy finished college, Kathy and June quit their day jobs, and the foursome soon began to perform on a regular basis.

They were discovered at an arts festival by songwriters Bobby Keel and Billy Stone, who helped them record a demo that got the group signed to Warner Bros. Records on July 31, 1984; Keel and Stone also contributed "Yankee Don't Go Home" to their self-titled debut album, which appeared the following year. Their first single, "That's What You Do (When You're in Love)," reached the Top Ten, and their next three — "I Fell in Love Again Last Night", "Just in Case" and "Mama's Never Seen Those Eyes" — went to number one in 1985 and 1986, respectively. Follow-up "Lonely Alone" peaked at number two. They were named Top Vocal Group at the 1986 Academy of Country Music Awards.

While the group would never equal that incredible run of success, they went on to score eight more Top Ten hits — all consecutively — through 1991, when their run came to a close with the humorous number eight hit "Men," which is actively used for the "Feminist Update" on The Rush Limbaugh Show.

After a five-year hiatus, they returned with 1996's Christian-themed album, "More Than I Am", but shortly after its release parted ways with Warner Bros. In 2002, they once again came together to record a new Christmas album released independently via their Web site. The album was co-produced by Kim Forester.
