The Time Jumpers Honor Dawn Sears on Kid Sister

How the Gifted Celebrate Their Own

They’re the Time Jumpers, and they play Western Swing.

And according to their new theme song “We’re the Time Jumpers,” there’s only one appropriate action when their fiddles ring — dance. Weeping while two-steppin’ circles around empty rooms is also acceptable. Vince Gill got choked up at least twice while talking about their new collection Kid Sister, a musical celebration of life honoring their late bandmate and comrade Dawn Sears.

The beloved vocalist was married to bandleader and fiddle player Kenny Sears for 27 years, sang harmony with Gill for 22 years and performed with the Time Jumpers for 10. She was 53 when she lost her battle with lung cancer on Dec. 11, 2014. On that same night, Gill and his wife Amy Grant were headlining the Ryman Auditorium on their annual Christmas tour.
