WOWAN sisters Bec and Rachel Olsson are the girls from the country about to embark on a sea change.

The country music duo, performing as Innocent Eve, is in Adelaide today to wrap up negotiations with cruise company, Choose Your Cruise, to take part in this year's Cruisin' Country event.

Bec and Rachel, who hail from the small country town of Wowan, west of Rockhampton, join some of Australian country's biggest names when the luxurious Rhapsody of the Sea departs from Sydney on October 12 for seven nights cruising the South Pacific.

Rachel said she was excited to perform alongside country music kings Lee Kernaghan, Troy Casser-Daly and Adam Harvey in the third annual festival.

Originally a solo act, Rachel performed on the 2012 edition Cruisin' Country, but was looking forward to joining her sister at sea.

"I'm absolutely loving it. We're best mates, we're only a year apart and we grew up sharing a room," Rachel said.

"It's so natural to perform together and we're loving it."

The duo is in the process of recording a first demo album which will feature a number of original tracks and covers.

The self-described best friends recently took out the Rockhampton Battle of the Bands competition earning a start at the Airlie Beach Music Festival, which begins on November 8.

Innocent Eve will join a line-up which includes Australian rock legends Hoodoo Gurus, Mental as Anything, Dragon, Diesel, Kasey Chambers, Ian Moss and James Reyne.

After this week's negotiations, the Wowan girls will turn their focus towards the semi-finals of Talent Quest Australia in August.
